health & safety

The 8th Annual IP Dealmakers Forum will be held on December 7-8, 2021, virtually and in-person at the Apella event venue (450 E 29th St, New York, NY 10016).

As we move forward with a hybrid conference model, we would like to communicate the significance of our health and safety protocols and precautions. We are continuously and closely working with our event venue partner, Apella, as well as following CDC guidelines to promote a comfortable, safe and enjoyable community.

These protocols are being updated regularly. Please check back for updates. We will also be communicating with registered in-person attendees prior to the event.

Registration

Due to health and safety protocols regarding the in-person experience, registration for the 2021 IP Dealmakers Forum will be planned in (3) phases. These phases only apply to the in-person experience. Individuals can register for the virtual experience at any time. All registration applications will be explicitly reviewed by the Dealmakers’ internal team.

Reminder: this is a planned rollout as there may not be additional phases based on capacity numbers.

EVENT HEALTH + SAFETY PROTOCOL

All precautions and protocols that have been set in place are to further assist in a healthy and safe environment for all attendees. Therefore, everyone in attendance, in-person, must follow all protocols and precautions set forth. Non-compliance to these protocols can forfeit your registration ticket to the event.

entering the venue

at the venue

During the Forum dates, December 7-8, 2021, every in-person attendee will need to provide proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test in order to enter the venue successfully.

All attendees must provide proof of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of the event’s start time. Alternatively, attendees may provide proof of a COVID-19 vaccination series completed at least 14 days prior to the date of the event.

If you have neither proof of a completed COVID-19 vaccination series or negative PCR test, you will not be permitted to attend the event, in-person. You can still, however, access the event virtually, not positioned on the premises of the event venue.

Social Distancing + Networking

We will maintain a maximum capacity and density of participants in accordance with relevant official government and regional guidance, along with current social distancing protocols being implemented at the venue. All attendees are suggested to adhere to these social distancing protocols.

Air Filtration + Sanitization

All filtration systems within the venue have been upgraded to MERV8 Prefilter & MERV18 Rigid Box Filters. The venue will be operating in accordance with the hygiene, cleaning, and disinfection requirements from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Department of Health (DOH) for all front and back of house areas.

Medical Emergencies + Medical Assistance

If during the event an attendee is showing COVID-19 symptoms (or symptoms on the watchlist listed above) said attendee must immediately notify an event staff member on-site. The attendee can also send an email to [email protected] to communicate this notification. Upon review of the notification, our event staff will isolate said attendee and seek medical attention as necessary.
