We are very excited about TPM22 and the enthusiastic response we are seeing from attendees and sponsors. We firmly believe that to host an in person TPM early next year, we must do so safely. We are 100% committed to the health and safety of attendees, speakers, providers and colleagues at all our events, and are putting rigorous plans in place for a safe return to an in-person experience. As a part of this ongoing work, and in response to the continued uncertainty that Covid-19 and its variants pose, we have now concluded that all attendees to TPM22 and TPMTech will need to:
- Prove their full vaccination status, via a WHO (World Health Organization) recognized vaccine. Participants with medical exceptions may attest to the exception.
- Provide a negative rapid test prior to badge pick up. Complimentary rapid testing will be provided as part of the onsite registration process. If you chose to source a test prior to arriving onsite you must provide official documentation of your negative test from the provider and ensure the date of testing does not exceed 72 hours between testing and conclusion of the event. At home test results will not be accepted.
- Wear a mask throughout the duration of the conference, except when actively eating or drinking.
In addition, we will be providing facilities onsite to enable attendees to test regularly during the week of TPM. Everyone will be required to have a valid negative test result (one that is no older than 72 hours old) for the duration of their attendance.
Please note that participation in TPM is subject to our Terms and Conditions, including compliance with conference and facility rules and the IHS Markit Conference and Event Code of Conduct. We reserve the right to refuse attendance without reimbursement of any registration fees if these conditions are not respected.
We understand that our measures will be going further than other events might and appreciate that some extra planning will be required on the part of our attendees in order to comply. However, our hope is that communicating these measures now will help you to plan your visit to Long Beach, and result in a TPM experience where everyone can safely and effectively do business and renew the relationships that are so critical to keeping supply chains functioning amid an ongoing challenging environment.
