Masks are optional for visitors to the Minneapolis Convention Center and this event. Masks or face coverings are not required in the city of Minneapolis. Individual organizations, businesses and venues may still institute specific mask and/or vaccine/testing mandates.
Proof of vaccination is not required to attend or exhibit at this event. To the venue’s staff, the MCC has implemented a multi-layered approach to manage the health and safety of its team members, requiring daily self-screening, masking, and weekly testing and/or vaccination for all MCC employees.
Cleaning & Disinfecting
The MCC is an accredited GBAC STAR™ facility and has implemented the most stringent protocols for cleaning, disinfection and infectious disease prevention. The MCC has increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting with EPA-approved disinfectants in all public and private spaces with an emphasis on high touchpoint areas and has incorporated new technology such as Electrostatic Disinfecting Machines.
The majority of all meeting rooms are equipped with Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization which works by safely introducing ions into the airflow, combining with particles in the air such as viruses, bacteria, odors, and other airborne particles, and then eliminating or neutralizing them. Other meeting room spaces utilize hospital-grade MERV 13 filters. All of our spaces are flushed with outside air before and after use. Engineers monitor all occupied spaces and maximize the use of outside air.
Event name badges are required at all times. No one is permitted to enter the event without first showing identification to pick up a badge. The MCC’s Command Center is centrally located on Level One of the building to provide guests with convenient access and efficient response times. With more than 100 security cameras, the venue monitors all areas of the building 24/7.
