COVID-19, Meet Safe

SECO 2022 is looking forward to welcoming our attendees and exhibitors to New Orleans.

SECO is committed to creating an event experience where our participants can safely and effectively come together.  We are taking extra precautions, beyond those mandated by local authorities and governmental agencies, including temperature checks and face masks required of all persons entering SECO 2022, without exception.

Below is a list of the health measures we have in place and how you will play a role in helping us move forward with an in-person event safely.  In addition to SECO’s safety protocols, the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center has implemented a program of stringent processes for cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention under its GBAC STAR™ facility accreditation.

Easy Health Screenings

Each attendee will participate in a daily text health screening to ensure the safety off all SECO 2022 attendees.


Before you Arrive

When you register for SECO 2022, there is a new option this year to purchase cancellation/refund insurance for your registration fee.  With this insurance, you can cancel and receive a refund if you are ill or meet the other policy requirements.

Have you completed a self-assessment and are you symptom free? If you feel sick, please stay home.

You can refer to the website for any questions on COVID-related symptoms.

Before you will be able to request your badge - 72 hours prior to SECO 2022 - you will be asked to acknowledge and accept our Terms and Conditions including a health survey.

Have your digital or printed badge (from home) ready when you arrive - the more prepared you are, the faster entry will be.  If you need to print your badge on-site, we will have limited registration services available on-site.

Please make sure you have packed a face mask (or two!); this is required at all times. Children under the age of 2 are the only exception.

We will have an Emergency Action Plan in place, including an open line of communication with local health officials.

We will conduct inspections to ensure the venue is safe, clean, and ready for learning and conducting business each day of the Congress.

Arriving at SECO 2022

We are taking additional health and safety measures at SECO 2022.  Please allow extra time when arriving at the Congress this year.

Daily temperature screenings will be conducted to enter the building each day for all participants.

Inside the Congress

Face masks will need to be worn inside the Congress at all times. Please make sure you have a face mask with you. Children under 2 are the only exception.

Please follow all recommended Health & Safety Measures including: Stay at least 6 feet from one another, wash your hands often, cover your cough or sneeze, and stay home if you are sick.

We have designed the Congress to allow for social distancing. There will be no aisle carpet in the exhibit hall to allow for enhanced cleaning and sanitation.

We will remind you to keep a safe distance from others with signage.

Seating areas will be properly distanced and transparent shields will be placed at all concession stands.

Exhibitors will have the option to order enhanced cleaning and disinfection services for their booths through Shepard Exposition Services.

Trash will be removed from the exhibit hall and course rooms with greater frequency.

Daily disinfecting will take place to sanitize all seating, restrooms and frequently touched public areas.

Feeling sick unexpectedly at the Congress? Medical personnel will be onsite and available to help anyone feeling unwell.
