The health and safety of TSIS attendees, exhibitors, and volunteers is NTSA’s number-one mission. We are working closely with all our partners at the Rosen Centre Hotel and conference vendors to ensure we present an event that meets all recommended health and safety requirements for our attendees, exhibitors, and team.
TSIS will follow the latest guidance and recommendations for large groups and meetings from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In addition, Rosen’s Total Commitment Program Overview adheres to those same guidelines and includes the implementation of physical distancing measures, strict sanitization and cleaning protocols, and hand sanitizing stations. The Rosen Centre has received the GBAC (Global Biorisk Advisory Council) Star accreditation which acknowledges the hotel’s protocols for cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention to protect guests and associates complies with GBAC’s 20-point auditing system.
These regulations are subject to changed based on local and hotel policies.
