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 (attendees, exhibitors, speakers, and other pass types) by adhering to local and state government guidance on large-scale indoor events.
