Covid-19 Safety and Health Information

Current Crowne Plaza Suites Policy:

SMC has lifted restrictions.  A condition of employment here is that  everyone is vaccinated and must have a card on file.   You may , as our guest, require that all your attends provide proof of vaccination or take temperatures but that is entirely on you and would be manned by you.

Such requirements may include, without limitation; changes to capacity, attendance procedures and entry requirements, such as proof of vaccination and/or negative COVID-19 test, and other protective measures such as requiring attendees to wear face coverings.

  • COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. There is an inherent and elevated risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place or place where people are present and there is no guarantee, express or implied, that those attending the festival will not be exposed to COVID-19.
  • There are multiple ways in which you are able to keep yourself and others safe and healthy without generating a lot of single-use waste due to the pandemic. Reusable/washable masks, refillable sanitation bottles, reusable/washable face shields, and washable cloths with biodegradable cleaners are all ways to cut down on your waste generation. Please keep this in mind when coming to the BSMA Summit to protect the planet while protecting yourself and those around you.
