Health & Safety are a top priority at DesignCon, hosted and managed by Informa Markets—Engineering. Informa has collaborated with association partners, peers, venues, suppliers, contractors and health, government, and local authorities to develop industry-wide All Secure standards that raise the bar on safe, hygienic, productive and high-quality organized event experiences.
DesignCon continues to prioritize the health and safety of all guests by adhering to CDC and local government guidance. Effective August 2, 2021, Santa Clara County has imposed an indoor face covering/mask mandate for all individuals, both vaccinated and unvaccinated. As a result, face coverings/masks will be required at DesignCon. Face masks will be available onsite for all guests if they do not have their own.
Read on to see how DesignCon’s Health & Safety actions aim to create a safe and successful event. As needs around Health & Safety evolve, this page will be updated to reflect current requirements. We appreciate your patience as we adapt our policies to meet expert guidance and keep our visitors, partners, and staff safe.
DesignCon proactively moved to the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR accredited San Jose McEnery Convention Center for its 2021 event, anticipating the need for more space. We decidedly secured the full venue. Doing so allows DesignCon more control over who is in the building, what protocols are enacted, and provides the space to allow our traditional number of attendees to gather, network, and collaborate.
Face coverings/masks will be required indoors at DesignCon regardless of vaccination status, pursuant to the August 2, 2021, order issued by the County of Santa Clara Public Health Department. Face coverings/masks are required while indoors at DesignCon at all times when indoors except when a person is actively eating or drinking. Specific exemptions from use of face coverings/masks under the guidance of CDPH can be found here.
Through DesignCon’s website, mobile app, email, and on-site signage and announcements, we will be providing needed information to keep you in the know.
