In-Person Safety Guidelines

As an in-person attendee, your safety is our top priority. We have developed the following guidelines based on CDC-recommended practices, in consultation with Visit Baltimore, and we require that attendees strictly adhere to all guidance in order to make our 2021 events safe, secure and enjoyable for all.

PLEASE NOTE
Safety guidelines below are subject to change at any time based on federal, state and local regulations. We ask that in-person attendees follow all safety instructions provided by Destinations International staff at all times, and that you do not attend any in-person event if you are feeling unwell or showing any symptoms of illness.
