BEFORE YOU ARRIVE

  • Have you completed a self-assessment, and are you symptom free? If you feel sick, please stay home. You can refer to the CDC’s COVID-19 Self-Checker reference guide for any questions on symptoms by clicking here.
  • Check your flight and travel arrangements.
  • Have your digital or print registration confirmation ready when you arrive – the more prepared you are, the faster entry will be.
  • In accordance with New York State and City guidelines for large-scale indoor events, the Javits Center is now requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination for admission to the convention center. This includes all event organizers, contractors, exhibitors and attendees, who will be required to show proof of vaccination in order to enter the convention center. In addition, all visitors to the Javits Center are required to wear a face covering regardless of vaccination status. Masks will be provided at the event if needed.
    For proof of vaccination, you must bring a valid photo ID and one of the following:

    • CDC Vaccination Card: A photo or photocopy of this card is also acceptable.
    •  NYC Vaccination Record or other official immunization record from within or outside the U.S., including from your health care provider. A photo or photocopy of this card is also acceptable. If you are unable to get this record, call 311
    • NYC COVID Safe App: Android | iOS. You can upload to this app a photo of your CDC vaccination card or other official record, along with your photo ID.
    • Excelsior Pass (or Excelsior Pass Plus): To use this app, you will need the phone number or email address associated with your NYC vaccination record. If you are unable to use this app, try one of the other options listed above.
    • CLEAR: https://www.clearme.com/vaccine-validation
    • Please note that all restrictions and requirements are subject to change. Please refer to our website often for current guidelines.
    • The Javits Convention Center has been working closely with ICFF + WantedDesign Manhattan to ensure we provide a safe and controlled environment. In concert with city and state officials, the Javits Center has:
      • Installed High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) air filters to reduce air pollutants throughout the convention center
      • Installed socially distanced seating in all food and beverage areas
      • Installed hand-sanitizing stations in public areas
      • Received Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) accredidation, the industry’s highest standard for cleaning and disinfection
