Event Safety and Responsibility
CLIA is committed to providing a safe, productive, and welcoming environment for all event participants and CLIA staff. All participants, including, but not limited to, attendees, speakers, volunteers, exhibitors, CLIA staff, service providers, and others are expected to abide by this Event Safety & Responsibility Policy. This Policy applies to all CLIA event-related activities, including those sponsored by organizations other than CLIA but held in conjunction with CLIA events, in public or private facilities.
In-Person Events Disclaimer
While CLIA strives to adhere to the advice of local, national, and international health authorities, any interaction with the public poses an elevated risk of being exposed to COVID-19 and we cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed while in attendance at the event. We encourage you to practice the best personal mitigation strategies that are available, like getting vaccinated, wearing masks while indoors with others, and washing your hands often. If you need more direction, please consult your national and local health authority websites for up-to-date recommendations. Our own member cruise line websites also provide a great source for rigorous, layered protective measures, validated by the lower incident rate on cruise ships compared to any sector on land.
At most CLIA networking events, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages are served. CLIA expects participants at our events to drink responsibly. CLIA and host event staff have the right to deny service to participants for any reason and may require a participant to leave the event.
Personal Safety and Security
CLIA works diligently to provide a safe and secure environment at its events by working with venue staff to make sure participants are safe. We ask that all attendees report any questionable or concerning activity to CLIA staff so that they can take immediate action. No concern is too small, if you see something, say something.
- Be aware of your surroundings at all times.
- Use the buddy system when walking to and from the event venue, networking event locations during early or late hours.
- Don’t wear your event badge on the street. Take it off as soon as you leave the building/venue.
- Don’t carry a lot of cash or credit cards. Leave in your hotel room safe.
