  • Inline booths will be assigned every other space for social distancing
  • There will be a designated entrance and exit to the Trade Show
  • Meeting rooms are being reconfigured to allow for more distance between attendees
  • Badge retrieval will be touchless with the attendee scanning their bar code, taking the badge printout, and a lanyard. Plexiglass shields will be at registration counters in case an attendee requires assistance
  • There will be no printed onsite convention program. Attendees, meeting rooms, and all other information will be in STAFDA’s convention app
  • A nurse is required by law to be present over the course of STAFDA’s three day meeting
