COVID-19 Information and Helpful Resources

We are planning for, and excited to welcome attendees to our in-person annual conference, while acknowledging the complexities of planning a safe and effective in-person, indoor conference that meets new and emerging local, state, and federal regulations. In early June, The City of Philadelphia ended all Safer at Home restrictions, including capacity and density limits, physical distancing guidelines, as well as all indoor and outdoor mask requirements. Per CDC recommendations, non-vaccinated individuals are still encouraged to wear masks.

EDUCAUSE will be implementing the following safety measures in addition to the enhanced convention center cleaning protocols: 

  • More self-service registration kiosks to limit lines and reduce touch-points

  • Longer breaks in between sessions to allow for cleaning

  • Optimized event schedule for staggered event traffic

  • Responsibly distanced seating options in session rooms

  • Options to stream select in-person content to personal device

  • Dedicated presenter equipment that is cleaned between use

  • Wider exhibit hall aisles

  • Dedicated exhibit hall entrance and exit

  • Controlled foot traffic patterns
