BICSI Fall Conference issues health & safety updates

Aug. 10, 2021
Both in-person and virtual attendees of the 2021 BICSI Fall Conference & Exhibition will have access more than 30 technical presentations.

A bulletin e-mail sent today by BICSI reads as follows:

In just two weeks, we will be in Las Vegas for the in-person 2021 BICSI Fall Conference & Exhibition. At that same time, virtual attendees will be able to experience the event from their computers.

Both in-person and virtual attendees will have access to two amazing keynote presentations and more than 30 technical presentations covering all things information and communications technology (ICT), from smart building and PoE, to DAS and AV, and everything in between. In addition, you’ll be able to explore an exhibit hall full of the latest technologies and have plenty of networking opportunities to grow your contact list.

For those attending in person, we want you to know that your health and safety is of the highest priority, and we are actively monitoring the guidelines and recommendations from government agencies, as well as the Sands Expo and Venetian Resort, to ensure the safety of everyone involved.

The Venetian has released the following information as part of their Venetian Clean Commitment, which includes both the hotel area and the Sands Expo, which is where the in-person BICSI Fall Conference will take place:

MASKS: The state of Nevada requires all individuals to wear face masks while in indoor public spaces, regardless of COVID-19 vaccination status. Complimentary face masks are available to our guests at Front Desks, Grazie Rewards Desks, and Concierge Desks.
CLEANING: Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have adjusted the frequency of routine cleaning in public spaces and heart-of-house back areas, and revised our cleaning protocols for guest suites, which meet or exceed all pertinent guidelines. Throughout the resort, hundreds of individual sanitization stations that include hand sanitizer or sanitizing wipes have been installed.
AIR QUALITY: To improve ambient air quality, we have adjusted our air conditioning systems to circulate up to 100 percent outside fresh air. This means we have reduced the amount of air that is recirculated. In addition, the frequency of air filter replacement and HVAC system cleaning has been increased. In specific areas, we have added additional MERV15 and HEPA hospital-grade filtration. Guest suites feature air conditioning systems that are independent of one another, which means they do not recirculate air directly from suite to suite within the HVAC system. Each suite receives fresh outside air and has its own exhaust.

The State of Nevada also recommends all BICSI attendees install COVID Trace on their smartphone. This free, easy-to-use phone app provides simple COVID-19 contact tracing without compromising user privacy. It is available in the Apple App Store and on Google Play. Further details can be found at
