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 is following the All Secure guidelines and continues to prioritize the health and safety of all guests by adhering to CDC and local government guidance. Presently, Santa Clara County has made the decision to recommend, but not require, masks for all individuals, both vaccinated and unvaccinated. In following that guidance, we will also recommend, but not require, that all guests wear face masks at DesignCon. Face masks will be available onsite for all guests.
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.
Clean efforts will allow DesignCon’s community to connect conscientiously and confidently. Note that any requirements for DesignCon exhibitors, attendees, and speakers will be followed by DesignCon’s management, as well.
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.
