ICES DALLAS 2021 COVID-19 Protocols

We are very excited to welcome you back to ICES Dallas 2021!

Dallas, TX was the nation’s first destination to seek Global Biorisk Advisory Council STAR accreditation designating Dallas hotels, airports, and the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas as sanitary and safe.

Along with the convention center, both airports, American Airlines Center, AT&T Stadium, and top hotels have achieved the gold standard in cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention protocols.

In addition to the safety measures implemented by the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas, our ICES staff is implementing the following protocols to ensure a safe event for all attendees, exhibitors, and staff. These protocols will be in place and mandatory until determined otherwise by the City of Dallas and the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas.
