NeoCon, taking place Oct. 4-6 at theMART in Chicago, Illinois, will require attendees, exhibitors and staff to show proof of vaccinations or a negative COVID-19 test for all NeoCon 2021 participants, show organizers say.

Participants must provide proof of COVID vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of the event, therefor they will need to complete a COVID pre-screening in order to receive a NeoCon badge and access NeoCon floors.

theMART has partnered with Health Pass by CLEAR to facilitate COVID screening. Those that have registered and completed COVID screening via Health Pass by CLEAR by Sept. 7 at 11:59pm CDT will receive their NeoCon badges by mail. Registrants with COVID screening credentials following this date will need to pick up their badges onsite on the first floor of theMART. For more information, head to NeoCon's COVID Screening Page.

Additional safety measures and protocols are also in place to address any necessary city, state, or CDC guidelines. This currently includes a city and state mask mandate for public indoor settings.
