When you join GSMCON2022 in person, you can expect to see that health and safety is a priority, and that a range of measures are in place to ensure everyone involved is able to enjoy a safe, hygienic and productive event experience. COVID-19 has changed many aspects of our world, and the way we do business. Our attendees’ health and well-being are our priority and we will do everything in our power to keep you safe.
GSMCON will follow any public health requirements or mandates for masking. Currently, the Dallas, Texas, area does not have a mask mandate, so masks are not required at the event.
Hotel staff are currently required to wear a mask if they are not fully vaccinated. Mask policies have evolved across the country over the months during GSMCON planning, and you can expect some attendees to wear masks and others to not wear them. Please consider your own comfort level, mask according to your preference, and always be respectful to other attendees.
GSMCON will have disposable masks available at our Information Booth - please stop by to request one.
COVID-19 vaccinations and booster shots for those eligible are highly encouraged. GSMCON will not inspect vaccination status.
GSMCON recommends all participants review the CDC guidance on travel: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/index.html. Be aware, the CDC requires masks at public transportation hubs and on all public transportation. This includes but is not limited to airports, flights, taxi/ride share, and local buses and other public transportation.
Do you plan on using a ride-share service to get to/from the hotel or around town? Please note that many still require you to wear a mask while riding.
GSMCON will make hand sanitizers available throughout conference rooms for attendee use. Hotel and A/V staff will sanitize surfaces in common areas frequently.
Hotel staff provides "tidy service" on a daily basis (make bed & refresh towels if needed), they do not perform total cleaning or change bed linens unless requested. Hotel staff are currently required to wear a mask. The Sheraton Dallas cleaning standards and protocols are can be read in depth here: https://whattoexpect.marriott.com/daldh, including mobile-check in, enhanced cleaning and more.
