COVID Protocols at the DGIQ Conference in December 2021
Updated on September 7, 2021
As we prepare for our first in-person conference in almost two years, we at DATAVERSITY have evaluated the available COVID-19 health protection protocols very closely, always with the utmost priority on the safety and security of all DGIQ participants. This is why we have made the decision to require all DGIQ 2021 attendees to be fully vaccinated in order to attend this year’s event. Face coverings will be required indoors, with practical exceptions for meals and active speakers.
There is a considerable amount of data that informs this decision, and though we anticipate that this policy may not be popular with everyone, we believe that it is in the best interests of allowing DGIQ participants to attend and network confidently with other attendees, speakers, and sponsors.
Of course, we understand that most people will still have questions, and we are currently preparing a FAQ page to address these. Meanwhile, you are welcome to email firstname.lastname@example.org with any specific questions. We are currently working with a specialist testing firm to define the validation and testing protocols that will be necessary for DGIQ, and we will post this plan as soon as it is available.
One important thing to mention is that the Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa is the perfect venue for a return to in-person attendance. The meeting rooms are literally steps away from the beach on Mission Bay, so it’s really easy to step outside and take your mask off. Some of our presentations are actually conducted on paddle steamers moored on the resort docks, so the salt air is constantly circulating.
