At DSI, we pride ourselves on bringing together senior government and industry leaders to support US national security interests. We believe in the importance of meeting with your colleagues, partners, and customers in person, the way a Zoom type call can never fully capture. However, the health and safety of event participants, speakers, exhibitors, and staff remain DSI’s top priority. At every one of our events, you can expect a professional experience that follows all current health guidelines in relation to COVID-19.
DSI forums are not large trade shows. Our summits and symposiums are small & focused educational meetings. Currently, the following protocols will be followed at all in-person DSI events taking place in Northern Virginia and Washington, DC.
Social Distancing : Capacity limits are in place to allow for social distancing. We ask all attendees and speakers to practice social distancing at DSI events. This may include making every other seat available, physically removing every other chair to allow for extra space, and allowing seating in multiple rooms depending on the venue.
Mask Wearing: All attendees and staff will be required to wear a mask during the duration of the event.
Individually Served Food: Pre-packaged, single-serving options will be available for lunch and refreshments instead of buffets. Removal of “high-touch communal items” such as coffee pots.
No Handshakes: We will ask all event participants to refrain from handshakes. The post Covid elbow bump will be the recommended greeting.
Enhanced Cleaning: We will provide extra hand sanitizer along with other disinfectants and hand wash reminders.
Temperature Check: Infrared thermometers will be used to check guest’s temperatures.
