This is just a sample of the initiatives currently underway – others are under consideration. We will continue to provide updates to exhibitors and attendees.
(As of January 4, 2022)
All travelers to the U.S. must show proof of full vaccination and a negative COVID-19 test, taken within 1 day prior to boarding their flight to the U.S. Those traveling by land do not need to provide a negative test. For purposes of entry into the United States, vaccines accepted will include FDA-approved or authorized and WHO Emergency Use Listing vaccines. Existing visa policies remain in place. Please check back regularly for the latest information.
Please visit the CDC website for more information on testing and entry requirements regarding international travel.
Below are some recommendations and considerations as you begin to plan your h+h americas exhibit experience:
- Communicate the proof of COVID-19 vaccination requirement to your staff. We strongly recommend that all attendees, support staff, and exhibitor staff are fully vaccinated.
- If the individual is unable or unwilling to provide proof of vaccination, we will accept proof of a negative COVID-19 test result within five days of attending the show.
- Ensure your booth has plenty of hand sanitizer that is visible and easily accessible.
- Ensure your booth design can accommodate proper social distancing. This includes designated entrances and exits, one directional traffic flow within your booth, and socially distanced seating in demo/presentation areas with an access-control monitor.
- Frequent booth/product cleaning including regular disinfecting of surfaces and wiping down high-touch items.
We thank you for your continued support and look forward to welcoming you to h+h americas in June. We have a strong and constantly expanding lineup of exhibitors and speakers ready to showcase their latest innovations!
How to Provide Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination
As part of the registration process, attendees will upload a copy of their vaccine records. Photocopies will be accepted. Digital vaccination certificates and mobile applications that many countries have issued will also be accepted. Vaccine records must clearly state the following:
- Full name
- Type of vaccine administered
- Date of when the vaccine was received
- Location where vaccine was administered
Important: buying, selling, or using a fraudulent vaccination card is a state and federal crime.
In addition to providing a copy of their vaccine record during registration, attendees will need to provide a government-issued photo ID that matches the name on their h+h americas registration confirmation to pick up their h+h americas 2022 badge.
How to Provide Proof of negative COVID-19 test results
- Proof of a negative COVID-19 test result is valid within five days of attending the show*.
Two types of negative COVID-19 tests are acceptable: polymerase chain reaction referred to as “PCR” (also called diagnostic or molecular), or rapid antigen test (also referred to as a “rapid test”).
- Either of the following will be accepted for entry (when accompanied by a valid government issued photo ID):
- Electronic proof of a Negative test result through h+h americas registration system, or
- A printed or digital copy of your Negative COVID -19 test results, written in English, that indicates the type of test administered (PCR or Antigen) and has your name and the date the test was administered. (Onsite only.)
*PLEASE NOTE: Per the CDC, Negative COVID-19 test results are valid for 5 days (120 hours), meaning that the Negative test must have been completed no earlier than Tuesday, June 21, 2022, in order to be accepted for entry for all three show days.
In addition to providing a copy of their negative test results to complete their registration, attendees will need to provide a government-issued photo ID that matches the name on their h+h americas registration to pick up their h+h americas 2022 badge.
