General attendance questions

Why must I be vaccinated to attend this event?

Your health and safety are of the utmost importance to us. Esri has been closely monitoring developments concerning COVID-19, and we are taking precautionary measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). Therefore, we are asking that those who attend be fully vaccinated.

What does fully vaccinated mean?

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 World Health Organization (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 authorized vaccines can be found on this CDC web page.

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

Will I need to show proof of vaccination to attend?

Yes, you will need to show proof of vaccination to attend. Esri supports the use of CLEAR Health Pass via the CLEAR app, where attendees can provide their vaccination status for registration and have a quick and easy way to show proof. We will also offer on-site manual screening. If you do not wish to complete the CLEAR Health Pass, you will be required to bring proof of vaccination (CDC Vaccination Record Card or other acceptable documentation) and ID for verification.

How do I report inappropriate behavior?

Inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated. If you see or are the target of inappropriate behavior or language, please contact an Esri staff member, and we will take appropriate action to ensure the event maintains a safe and constructive environment.

The consequences of such behavior may include but are not limited to the following:

  • Immediate removal from session or meeting
  • Restricted access to future Esri events
  • Denial of attendance for future Esri events

Esri reserves the right to take any and/or all these disciplinary actions as deemed necessary for all events.
