COVID-19 and the ICE Exchange
Message from Executive Director Denise Roosendaal, CAE
ICE is monitoring the crisis brought on by COVID-19, and we are continuing to plan for a live meeting in Miami, Florida. If this decision should change do to any health or safety concerns, we will inform you as soon as possible. The list of the indicators we are following to make conference decisions include:
- Public health warnings and guidance
- Guidelines from Florida’s Governor
- CDC guidelines
- Health and safety efforts made by the Fontainebleau Miami Beach and their guidance on preparedness
- The ability of attendees to travel
We are taking any decision regarding the future of the 2020 Exchange very seriously, as we know the in-person event provides valuable education and networking time to many of you.
Precautions for your Safety
ICE is planning for increased precautions to keep you safe at the ICE Exchange, such as a no handshaking policy, hand sanitizing stations, and social distancing in session rooms and meal functions.
In addition, the Fontainebleau Miami Beach has increased their precautions around guest procedures. Review the Fontainebleau Miami Beach’s website (at the end of the first paragraph you can review a link to their Health and Safety Program) to understand the precautions they are taking to keep guests safe.
On-going Planning and Your Feedback
ICE is exploring all options (and their financial impacts), from virtual enhancements for the conference to how technology and streaming practices might support social distancing efforts at a live event. In an effort to remain transparent in our decision-making, we will continue sharing updates regarding the progression of 2020 ICE Exchange or any changes due to the pandemic. ICE will continue to adapt to our new environment.
We need to continue to hear from you, so if you have questions please feel free to send them to email@example.com.
