Note from organizers regarding COVID-19:
Please know that ISMTE is committed to caring for our members, vendors and colleagues.
Your safety and well-being is and will continue to be a priority.

We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation, as is our host hotel. We both are following all recommended precautionary measures, protocols and guidelines from various health organizations including the World Health Organization (WHO), US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as the ANA, Illinois Department of Health and other local authorities. As the situation evolves, we will continue to follow recommended measures.

At this time it would be premature to make any change to our scheduled event. If, as the event date draws closer, conditions warrant or mandate a postponement or cancellation, we will promptly notify all members, vendors and other stakeholders.
