How to Stay Safe and Healthy Before and During the Conference This is our first in-person Annual Conference since 2020! In an effort to keep all attendees safe and healthy, we ask that you follow these recommendations: Please wear your badge at all times in Caesars Forum. If you misplace your badge, we can help you at the registration desk. If you forget it, we’ll ask you to go retrieve it. NAIS policy prohibits all firearms in event space leased from the Caesars Forum for the duration of the Annual Conference event. In addition to contracted security personnel, NAIS will have emergency medical personnel on-site to address any health emergencies that arise. If you experience or witness a medical emergency, please dial 9-1-1 as a first step. All participants at NAIS events are encouraged to wear masks indoors (except when actively eating, drinking, or presenting) and to follow the CDC’s recommendations for vaccination against COVID-19. Please consider masking while you travel to Las Vegas. Any participant who feels ill or who tests positive for COVID is asked to stay home or away from the event.
