Safety Plan

We are committed to maintaining all appropriate sanitary, health, and safety measures and encourage attendees to follow guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization.

As we move ahead with planning and implementing the programming, we will continue to place high importance on facilitating measures that will ensure optimal health and sanitary conditions for everyone onsite during the event. In order to remain informed about the ongoing situation at both the global and local levels, we are in constant communication with our partner the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point.

Guided by their purpose of care and experience delivering world-class hospitality for more than 60 years, Hyatt’s Global Care & Cleanliness Commitment further enhances existing operational guidance and resources around colleague and guest safety and peace of mind. This multilayered commitment will build on Hyatt's existing rigorous protocols and include an accreditation process by the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) at all Hyatt hotels around the world, colleague training and support resources, and a cross-functional working group of medical experts and industry professionals that will contribute to various aspects of the hotel experience.

At the local level, we are working directly with Hyatt and will have the following in place:

  • Food and Beverage pre-packaged or served cafeteria style
  • Additional stations for receptions to reduce lines
  • Seating for classroom and rounds that allows for social distancing during all functions
  • Monitoring attendance in all meeting spaces to allow for distance between attendees
  • Hand sanitizer stations throughout all meeting space
  • Extra disinfectant on all high touch areas
  • Meeting spaces, tables and chairs cleaned between each session
  • Contactless hotel check in with the mobile app and contactless conference registration with in room delivery of credentials and other materials
  • Masks available to all attendees
  • Daily temperature checks of all employees and attendees

FFEA continues to monitor the rapidly changing situation related to COVID-19 and understand that concerns for health, safety, and the impact on meeting attendance, among other issues, are affecting everyone. Due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the coronavirus, FFEA will not charge a cancellation fee if you decide to not attend in-person based on concerns around your health or travel, including after the original June 19 cancellation deadline.

In the event that you need to cancel or that FFEA has to cancel the event, you will be fully refunded unless you prefer to leave a credit on file towards your annual membership or to be used for the 2021 Convention & Tradeshow.

FFEA reserves the right to refuse entry to any attendee with a fever or who has been sick or in contact with anyone who has tested positive in the past 14 days. We ask that all attendees follow CDC Guidelines and stay home if you are sick.
A signed waiver will be required for all in-person event participants.
