The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends vaccinations and WIT encourages attendees who are comfortable in doing so to get vaccinated prior to attending this conference. Read up on CDC vaccination resources and the benefits of getting vaccinated here.

If you aren’t feeling well prior to traveling to Dallas, we have a very generous substitution and/or cancellation policy. Check it out at the bottom of our registration page.
When possible, keep a distance and avoid greeting others with physical contact. WIT also will take aggressive steps to ensure seating during educational sessions, meals, and networking receptions are socially distanced in according with CDC guidelines.
If you feel more comfortable wearing a mask in a conference setting, you are encouraged to do so. Masks also will be available at WIT’s registration desk.
WIT has arranged for hand sanitizer stations to be placed throughout the meeting facilities, so make sure to take advantage.
WIT is working closely with the hotel to ensure steps are taken to minimize the spread of germs, including the use of plexiglass in all high-traffic areas such as registration, practice of wearing masks by hotel staff, etc.
