Safety Related Questions – Updated February 28, 2022

We know you might have questions or uncertainty. We understand, we do too! Here we’ll do our best to let you know everything that we know, and also be clear about what’s still up in the air.

What Covid Protocols will be in place?​
We will be following all safety measures that will be required of us by the State of California and the County of Los Angeles.

What is the mask policy?
As of today, per Los Angeles County: All fully vaccinated persons attending indoor and outdoor Mega Events are permitted to participate in the event without a mask. Attendees who are not fully vaccinated are required to bring and wear masks at the event, except while actively eating and drinking in designated areas. Speakers who are not fully vaccinated are permitted to remove their masks while on stage. Please continue to monitor this page for updates as the event approaches. See below for testing requirements for speakers and attendees who are not fully vaccinated.

Do I need a vaccine or negative test to attend the event?​
As of today, per Los Angeles County: All attendees must show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 or a pre-entry (diagnostic) negative test result prior to entry (taken within 24 hours of the start of the event if an antigen test, or 48 hours of the start of the event if a PCR test). Please continue to monitor this page for updates as the event approaches.

The JW Marriott hotel staff will be pre-screening attendees upon their initial entry into the event space. Please have your photo ID ready that matches your vaccination card or negative test.

Proof of Vaccination means one of the following demonstrating proof of Full Vaccination: A vaccination card issued by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) COVID-19 vaccination card, which includes the name of the person vaccinated, type of vaccine provided, and date last dose administered, or similar documentation issued by another foreign governmental agency; 1. A photo of a vaccination card (both sides), compliant with Subsection 0.1, above, as a separate physical photograph or stored on a phone or electronic device; 2. 3. Documentation of vaccination from a licensed healthcare provider; or A personal digital COVID-19 vaccine record issued by the State of California or similar documentation issued by another state, local, or foreign governmental jurisdiction, or by a private company. California residents can visit the State of California’s Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record website at and download a QR Code on a phone.

Where is the nearest same-day testing location to the event?
SameDayHealth is within walking distance and has walk-up testing available. CLICK HERE to learn more. If I select in-person attendance, but end up having to change to virtual, can I do that?​
Yes! You have until March 4 to let us know if you’d like us to convert your attendance to be virtual instead. Please note due to the nature of event production costs, we won’t be able to provide any refund if the pass you registered for was a higher price than a virtual pass.

What happens if the event does not happen at all due to Covid?​​
We do not anticipate this happening. However if we cannot hold an event with an in-person component in 2022, you will have the option of a refund, or we will roll your pass over to one of our future events of your choice. If the event is indeed held with an in-person component, then there will be no refunds for those who cannot make it, however we’ll gladly convert your pass to a Virtual one (see above).​

If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact us via email. We can’t wait to see you this March!
