Commitment to Your Health & Safety

Your health and safety are always a priority for us. Vaccinations have reduced the need for many of the COVID-19 protocols that were formerly in place: face masks, social distancing, and travel restrictions. In many cities and states, these rules have been fully lifted.

As HMP Global moves forward with a return to in-person events, we continue to closely monitor the guidance released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), along with state and local governments to comply with current guidelines and ensure that we provide an environment that is as safe as possible for our participants and staff.   

If you have any questions, please contact our Registration Department at


What protocols are in place around the AIBD meeting in Orlando?

  • Masking:
    • The Swan and Dolphin Resort recommends that masks be worn indoors in all public spaces (e.g., lobby) for those who are not fully vaccinated. 
    • With the health and safety in mind of immuno-compromised patients who may be under the care of clinicians in attendance, masks should be worn by all AIBD attendees and exhibitors.
    • All AIBD staff and vendors will be required to wear a mask throughout the meeting. 
    • A supply of masks will be available at Registration for anyone who needs one.
  • Hand sanitizing stations will be situated throughout the property.
  • Socially distanced seating options for educational sessions will be provided.
  • All attendees, exhibitors, faculty, vendors, and staff should:
    • Respectfully stay home and do not participate if you are experiencing any flu-like symptoms.
    • Wash hands often with soap for at least 20 seconds and/or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
    • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
    • Engage in responsible health and safety practices on and offsite for the AIBD meeting.
    • We continue to encourage all attendees, faculty, exhibitors, and staff to make informed choices about travel, onsite activity, and external engagement.
