Our Covid Mitigation Practices
Among our plans for Fiber Connect 2021:
• Regularly clean and sanitize conference and meeting spaces across the show venues and provide sanitization stations throughout;
• Better enable social distancing, including widening aisles in many exhibit areas and providing more space between seats in conference programs and other areas where attendees congregate;
• Issue best practices for attendees, such as wearing masks and avoiding shaking hands, and for exhibitors on product demonstrations;
• Limit touch points throughout the facilities including through cashless systems for purchases and transactions;

These measures are just a sampling of what we plan for Fiber Connect 2021, and we will assess and evaluate the latest solutions in the coming months. We will continue to work with our venue in Dallas and update our plans and share them with you.
