Check this page for updates about health and safety requirements

Esri is committed to protecting the health and safety of our attendees, including exhibitors, employees, and presenters. We follow the established protocols from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and local health authorities and ask that all in-person event attendees do the same. Esri will continue to assess the evolving public health guidance regarding large gatherings and adapt accordingly. These guidelines are subject to US government and local rules and regulations.

We encourage everyone to make informed decisions about attending our events in the best interest of their health as well as the health of others. If you cannot or choose not to follow the on-site health and safety requirements, you will not be permitted to attend Esri in-person events.

In-person attendance requirements

All attendees, including exhibitors, presenters, and Esri employees, at this event must verify that they have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The conference will implement a third-party application for verification. A person is considered fully vaccinated 14 days after receiving either of the following:

  • The second dose in a two-dose series such as the Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Covaxin, Covishield, BIBP, or Sinovac vaccines
  • A single-dose vaccine such as Johnson & Johnson's Janssen vaccine

This guidance applies to COVID-19 vaccines authorized for emergency use by the WHO or approved for full use by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on or before January 25, 2022. The full list of emergency use and approved vaccines can be found on this FDA web page.

Individuals who do not meet these requirements are not considered fully vaccinated and will not be permitted to attend this event.

How to provide your vaccination status
Esri supports the use of the Health Pass by CLEAR app, where attendees can provide their vaccination status for registration and have a quick and easy way to show proof. To get started, download the app, and enroll in CLEAR before the event. Once you register for an event, instructions on how to link or upload your vaccination record to your CLEAR account will be emailed along with your registration confirmation.

Verifying vaccination status on-site

Vaccine Checkpoint counters will be available at several locations around the event. You can find a comprehensive list of locations on our FAQ page. Please note the following:

  • Attendees who have completed a CLEAR Health Pass can proceed to any GREEN Vaccine Checkpoint counter to show their verified pass in the CLEAR app.
  • Attendees who have not completed a CLEAR Health Pass can proceed to any BLUE Vaccine Checkpoint counter for manual screening.

Navigating the event after verification
Once your status is verified, you will receive a wristband and can proceed to the Badge Pickup counter. The following is important information about your wristband:

  • Wristbands will be required for entry to the convention center as well as all event areas and sessions.
  • We encourage you to keep your wristband on during your time at the event. If you remove your wristband, you will need to be reverified at a Vaccine Checkpoint counter to receive a new one.

Attendees who do not meet these requirements are not considered fully vaccinated and will not be permitted to attend Esri in-person events.

Yes, all attendees at this event must verify that they have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Esri supports the use of CLEAR Health Pass with the CLEAR app to verify vaccination. If you are unable to download and use CLEAR Health Pass as verification, you can provide your proof of vaccination on-site for manual screening at the Health Pass Help Desk.

Esri will be using CLEAR Health Pass to verify vaccination status. Note: Esri does not have access to any personal information that you submit to CLEAR Health Pass.

There are two options to digitally verify your COVID-19 vaccine with CLEAR:

  • Upload a photo of your CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card.
  • Digitally link your vaccination record from a health system or pharmacy.

Privacy is at the center of everything CLEAR does, and CLEAR is fully committed to protecting members' information. CLEAR does not sell or rent any personal information that you submit to Health Pass and will only use personal information to deliver a frictionless and secure experience. You can read more details about this on the CLEAR Privacy Policy page.

Select your vaccine provider from the menu or enter your provider's name in the search box. Log in to your patient portal and follow the instructions to securely link your account with CLEAR.

The CLEAR app is integrated with select health-care providers and pharmacies.

  • If you are unable to find your provider through a search, CLEAR may not be able to link to it at this time.
  • Check that your COVID-19 vaccine appears in your patient portal; if not, we recommend that you reach out to your provider directly.
  • Your results will link automatically; do not try to resync your results.
  • Sync time varies by provider and may take up to 30 minutes.

Once synced, proceed to complete your Health Pass.

When prompted, select add your vaccination card to upload a photo of your card.

Open the app and tap the Health Pass tile. Choose Open Health Pass to retrieve your result again.

Attendees who do not complete the Health Pass will be required to show their CDC vaccination card and photo ID at the Health Pass Help Desk.

No, you must show your Health Pass in the CLEAR app because it is a dynamic screen.

Your Health Pass is valid for 30 days. But if you used your Health Pass for  a previous event, you would need to add the event code for this event and reconfirm your identity by taking a selfie.

Although not required, we encourage attendees to practice social distancing measures, including keeping a physical distance of six feet where possible, as recommended by the CDC. Socially distanced seating options will be provided in all venues, including at all education sessions and networking events. Exhibit Halls will include wider aisles, and booths will be spaced apart.

We are working with our partners to ensure that CDC-recommended cleaning protocols are followed during this event and that high-touch surfaces are being thoroughly disinfected.

Yes, you should

  • Avoid attending the venue if you are experiencing any flu-like symptoms.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Engage in additional responsible health and safety practices, whether on or off the event premises.
