The Countdown to Channel Partners Las Vegas Is On

CP-Expo-Logo-877x432

We understand concerns about coronavirus are top of mind, and we want to be as transparent as possible and share information about what we are doing to prepare for the Channel Partners Conference & Expo in Las Vegas.

We also understand our attendees and exhibitors rely on Channel Partners Conference & Expo to aid business growth throughout the year. Therefore, we’re happy to report that Channel Partners Conference & Expo is still all systems go for Vegas, March 9-12.

Despite some sponsors and exhibitors choosing to forego their participation due to company instituted travel bans, we are confident the event will remain beneficial, as we are still on track to host the largest independent channel event of the year.

With that in mind, here’s what you need to know:

  • Our top priority is the health and safety of all participants of the show.
  • We are proceeding as planned to hold a safe and successful event in Las Vegas, March 9-12.
  • There are no known cases of COVID-19 in the area. In addition, all 11 Las Vegas airports have screening protocols in place.
  • On the attendee side, there have been no cancellations due to travel restrictions or the coronavirus, though we do anticipate we’ll see some impact at the show.
  • Of our 263 sponsors and exhibitors, our title sponsor, AT&T, as well as 13 other exhibitors have company-instituted travel bans and had to exit Channel Partners Conference & Expo. Of these, five exhibitors were based in China. The others are due to corporate travel bans.
  • This event will have a no-handshake policy. Feel free to use a CP elbow bump or a simple smile and nod instead.
  • We will be providing hand-sanitizing stations, as well as frequent sanitizing of commonly touched areas, including door handles, counters, water dispensers, etc., and strongly encourage all participants to wash their hands throughout the day.

Ultimately, we expect everyone to make responsible decisions and stay home if they are sick. For those at the event, we encourage you to practice healthy habits, including those recommended by the CDC:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Stay in your hotel or at home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

The health safety of our audience and staff is our utmost priority, and we will remain attentive and continue working with the Venetian & Sands Expo to utilize precautionary measures to protect the health and safety of all of our guests. You can find all FAQs and information from WHO and the CDC on our Health & Safety page.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact our team at cpexpo@informa.com. Otherwise, we look forward to seeing you at Channel Partners Conference & Expo in Las Vegas next week. As always, drinks are on us!

Cheers, and we’ll see you soon.
