Keeping You Safe: CAMX’s Health and Safety Measures

CAMX is excited to welcome attendees, exhibitors, and vendors back to the industry’s biggest in-person conference of 2021. Everyone’s health and safety remains our top priority. As such, CAMX’s safety protocols will follow all local and federal guidelines and recommendations. This information will continue to be updated as the Expo approaches. We are taking great measures to ensure that your participation in CAMX is safe so you can focus on business and reconnecting with your peers.

Complimenting the safety rules and regulations of the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas (KBHCC) and the city of Dallas, CAMX will implement the following measures:

  • Added health and safety signage.
  • Masks are strongly advised especially for all unvaccinated attendees, exhibitors, staff, and service providers.

General best practices

  • This one is tough: avoid handshakes and embraces as greetings. Instead, bump elbows, tip your hat, air-five, take a bow, wave, or just say “Hello!”
  • Wash your hands often. Especially when you’ve been in high-touch areas like on escalators, in elevators or seating areas.
  • Avoid touching the eyes, nose, and mouth.

the facility

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.

Additional measures for both the facility and food & beverage outlets that have been put in place include:

Cleaning and Air Filtration

  • A MERV 13 filtration system is used in all air handlers throughout the KBHCC.
  • UV light air purification has been installed in all passenger elevators.
  • UV light escalator handrails have been installed for all escalators in the convention center.
  • Outside air intake has been increased in all meeting rooms, ballrooms, and exhibit halls to increase the air mixture while maintaining suitable temperatures within spaces.
  • Frequent touch points such as escalator rails, door handles, and elevator buttons are disinfected with EPA or NEA registered disinfectants.
  • Bathrooms, carpets, and equipment are cleaned regularly.
  • Employees have received training in the proper procedures to utilize each piece of cleaning and disinfectant equipment, including electrostatic sprayers and power washers.
