Planning for TCEA 2022
We want all our attendees and members to be healthy and safe. TCEA holds the health and safety of its members, partners, and visitors as its top priority when hosting in-person events. We strive to facilitate outstanding experiences, and our commitment to creating a safe environment comes first. This has not changed.
COVID-19 has been at the forefront of our minds as we have moved through the planning process for TCEA 2022. We have continued to monitor the pandemic and have stayed abreast of current COVID-19 city, county, state, and federal recommendations and requirements. TCEA will abide by city, county, and state COVID-19 health and safety orders in which the event is taking place, as well as take precautions to protect those in attendance.
Please read the following information carefully in order to be best prepared to attend our in-person 2022 TCEA Convention & Exposition and to ensure you align with our COVID-19 recommendations and requirements.
Before You Arrive
Before arriving in person to the TCEA 2022 Convention & Exposition in Dallas, we strongly encourage attendees, exhibitors, and vendors to:
- Complete a personal health check. If you have a fever or are experiencing any symptoms of illness, please stay home.
- Ensure you will have 2-3 clean masks per day of attendance and a thermometer for personal temperature checks.
- Consider self-testing prior to arrival, as recommended by the CDC.
Healthy Habits for Attendees and Exhibitors
While attending TCEA 2022 in person, TCEA highly encourages all in-person attendees, exhibitors, and vendors to:
- Wear a mask, except for when actively eating or drinking.
- Complete temperature checks each day.
- Wash hands thoroughly with soap for at least 20 seconds before and after eating, after using the restroom, and after any physical contact.
- Sanitize hands often by taking advantage of the hand sanitizing stations provided at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center.
- Practice physical distancing whenever possible.
- Limit physical contact (hugging, handshaking, etc.) with other attendees.
- Leave the area if you begin feeling ill or running a fever until you receive a negative COVID test result.
Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center
The staff at Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center (KBHCC) is dedicated to our health and safety. They have been and will continue taking active precautions to help prevent the spread of illness. You can learn about their protocols and health and safety measures here. Should you have any additional questions, please contact the KBHCC directly as they will be able to best assist you.
Hotel Health and Safety Protocols
For questions regarding hotel health and safety protocols, please contact the hotel directly.
During the TCEA 2022 Convention & Exposition, TCEA will be limiting the number of attendees per session room. We will not provide seating to maximum capacity. However, there will be some spaces in which physical distancing of three feet or more is not possible. When physical distancing is not possible, choose another session, use flexible space in the area to distance yourself from other attendees, or proceed according to your comfort level.
Can’t Attend In Person?
There Are Options.
There is inherent risk in participating in any activity. Due to the circumstances created by COVID-19, there is a heightened degree of personal risk and responsibility. TCEA will take all legal, prudent, and advisable measures to reduce the risk of virus/illness transmission. However, despite our best efforts, we will be unable to reduce the level of risk to zero.
By participating in in-person TCEA events, attendees acknowledge these risks and agree to abide by all guidelines. TCEA attendees will not hold anyone else accountable, including TCEA should they contract an illness or should anything else happen to them during their participation at TCEA events. Attendees understand that they are responsible for monitoring their own health status and should not attend an event if they are symptomatic in any way or believe they have been exposed to COVID-19.
