Keeping You Safe: CAMX’s Health and Safety Measures

CAMX is thrilled to be inviting its attendees, exhibitors, and vendors to the industry’s biggest in-person conference of 2021. We are taking great measures to ensure that your participation in CAMX is safe.

As such, CAMX’s safety protocols will be run according to all local government and authority guidance. In fact, the city of Dallas and the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas (KBHCCD) have gone to great measures to ensure a SAFE experience while in their city. Late last year, the convention center achieved the Global Biorisk Advisory Council® (GBAC) STAR™ accreditation. GBAC's STAR™ Facility Program, created by the International Sanitary Supply Association (ISSA), has specific criteria that consider cleaning, disinfecting, and infectious disease prevention plans when approving accreditations. The accreditation means that the KBHCCD implemented a plan, and continues to do so, to control risks associated with infectious agents such as COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2, Influenza, MRSA, and TB.
