Vaccine entry requirements for IMEX America
The IMEX team has confirmed that all IMEX America participants must provide proof of full vaccination against covid-19 to gain access to the show.
IMEX will be using CLEAR Health Pass app for all North American attendees. There will be a different process for use by international attendees, as they will be able to submit their vaccine status to an equally secure portal prior to the event to gain vaccine certification.
IMEX will also be providing a specialized health clinic onsite, together with access to testing stations for homeward bound international travellers whose travel providers require them to show a negative test before departure.
As IMEX Group CEO, Carina Bauer, explains, “We’ve consulted widely about this decision and have been watching the events landscape in North America very closely these past weeks. The requirement for participants to prove their full vaccination status is fast becoming the unofficial ‘gold standard’ for large events in the US.
“Now that we’ve published our plans, we hope that everyone has enough time and space to make their own arrangements to attend the show. We open with Smart Monday, powered by MPI, on 8 November and we can’t wait to greet everyone and see our industry friends and colleagues in person – our unofficial IMEX family – for what promises to be a momentous reunion.”
