As our member community makes plans to join us in July for InfoAg Conference and Tradeshow, we want to assure our exhibitors, attendees, speakers and partners that we are proceeding as planned to hold a safe, productive and successful event. 
 
The safety of our show community remains our highest priority and we continue to monitor the COVID-19 developments closely, following guidance from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
 
We have received some inquiries from exhibitors and attendees about how our plans are evolving in light of recent COVID-19 developments and we want to assure our show community that we are continuing to follow national and local public health guidelines closely and implementing appropriate measures which include:
  • Public health messaging displayed and shared pre and during the event
  • Strengthened hygiene, sanitization, and availability of disinfectants
  • Upgraded medical support onsite
