Market Floor Plans
Physical Design For Face-to-Face Market
Our markets and floor plans have been redesigned to provide you with a comfortable experience:
In order to facilitate a safe environment, all attendees and exhibitors are required to pre-register. Registration is complimentary! Badges will be printed and mailed to the primary contact on your registration form. Badge mailings will begin 30 days prior to market. Register within 10 days of market opening in order to receive your credentials.
Staggered Arrival Times
To properly manage traffic flow and ensure safe, physical distancing, attendees will be required to choose a specific arrival time during the pre-registration process. Arrival times will be on the hour or 1/2 hour. The first hour of both market days will be reserved for at-risk attendees.
Contactless registration will be enforced. Attendees and exhibitors will scan their badge upon entry to market.
- Masks will be required inside the facility.
- Floor decals will be placed to ensure proper safe and physical distancing with 6-foot spacing.
- Sanitation stations will be located around the facility.
- Aisles have been increased in width and space. Booth layouts include safe space between 10x10s.
- Assigned distancing traffic flow patterns for entrances and exits have been created.
Upon entry to market, all attendees and exhibitors will be required to complete a mobile health screening through the HealthShield Bot.* The morning of your arrival, you will receive a HealthShield Bot by text message, asking you four simple health-related questions. The Healthshield Bot will ask for your temperature. We encourage you to take your temperature before arriving to market or bring a thermometer with you. There will also be infrared thermometers onsite. Upon completion of the screening, a pass or fail score will appear based on the answers submitted. You will simply show your paper badge and HealthShield bot confirmation to the door greeter as you walk into the exhibit hall.
*Information from the Healthshield Bot will only be shared with the Health Department and authorities in the case of an outbreak.
