Coronavirus (COVID-19) – NDIA Meetings, Conferences & Events are currently proceeding as planned.
The National Defense Industrial Association is closely following developments regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) and currently we are proceeding as planned, with our meetings, conferences and events.
The health and safety of our members, registrants, exhibitors and staff is our highest priority and we will continually be monitoring reports from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) and will adjust plans as needed.
NDIA is implementing all guidance and recommended safety measures issued by WHO, CDC, and state and local health authorities. We will work with all of conference partners to ensure the safety of all meeting and conference participants.
Attendees and exhibitors can expect to see heightened levels of cleanliness and onsite accommodations to actively encourage all show participants to take common-sense precautions following CDC guidelines.
Currently, there are no public health authorities in the United States advising the cancellations of meetings, conferences or events. The U.S. CDC and WHO websites are the best resources for staying up to date on this rapid evolving situation.
Both the WHO and CDC recommend basic personal hygiene and healthy travel practices to reduce the transmission of disease, including the following.
