Onsite Safety Requirements

The health and well-being of our attendees, sponsors, exhibitors, speakers, and staff is our top priority.

Specifically, Master Brewers will require that all onsite attendees are fully vaccinated OR can provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test (results within 72 hours of picking up your badge onsite) to enter the conferenc​e. We have partnered with Safe Expo to administer this verification process. If you have received or plan to receive the vaccine before you travel, please upload a copy of your vaccination card to Safe Expo's secure portal now. If you are not vaccinated, you will be asked to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test (results within 72 hours) when you pick up your badge onsite. 

All onsite ​Master Brewers staff will be vaccinated.
