NCN Health & Safety Information

Informa Markets’ New Hope Network is committed to safely gathering the community at NCN Spring Investor Meeting in New York City, April 19-20, 2022.

We will continue to monitor and adjust our plans and health protocols as necessary. The information below is as of March 22, 2022 and is subject to change as we receive guidance from the state and local health authorities, the Current at Pier Sixty event venue, the CDC and WHO, and we will provide regular and timely updates to help the community best prepare for the event.

Informa AllSecure: Our Commitment to Your Safety

We are prepared to manage the event in accordance with federal and local regulations, as well as the Informa AllSecure Plan, ensuring the highest standards of safety, hygiene, cleanliness and operational effectiveness for all show participants.

Cleaning & Hygiene

Enhanced Cleaning

The Current at Pier Sixty event venue follows all New York City and state protocols regarding cleaning and venue operations. Cleaning practices have been enhanced to ensure standards are exceeded for disinfecting and hygiene with an increased focus on key touchpoints, including high-traffic areas, handles and rails, restrooms, food & beverage areas, and registration desks.  

Personal Hygiene

NCN will provide hand sanitizer stations throughout the event space and encourage all participants to regularly wash and disinfect their hands.

Physical Distancing

Food and Beverage

Kitchens will be deep cleaned and sanitized at a higher frequency including the cleaning of food prep stations after each use. All dining tables, chairs and common furniture will be disinfected after each guest use, following CDC and EPA guidelines.


We encourage everyone to register online prior to the event to ensure the onsite experience is streamlined. Badges will be printed prior to the show. The general meeting space will be modified to allow for limited touch and proper social distancing.  

Physical Contact

NCN encourages sharing information digitally by connecting through the NCN mobile app rather than exchanging business cards to limit physical contact.

Protect and Detect

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

NCN Spring Investor Meeting participants are not required to wear a face covering. We do encourage anyone who feels more comfortable wearing a face covering during the event to do so, and we will make masks available to participants who would like to wear one.

Personal Health Accountability

We highly encourage all guests to either receive a COVID-19 vaccine prior to the event, or, receive a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of arrival.

If you are feeling sick or have recently been exposed to someone who is sick, we kindly ask that you stay home and participate in the event virtually.
