Health & Safety

We look forward to welcoming attendees back to the INFORMS Annual Meeting in Anaheim and navigating the new norms of interacting with each other in a physical space. INFORMS main priority is the health and safety of everyone attending the annual meeting and we are taking great care to make every participant feel safe. We are working closely with the Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Marriott Anaheim to ensure that the INFORMS Annual Meeting is adhering to all requirements of California Department of Public Health, the Orange County Health Care Agency and any additional guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. All attendees will be required to abide by our COVID-19 procedures. Since these procedures are continuously changing, we will post more accurate information in late summer.

The Anaheim Convention Center has received GBAC Star accreditation from the Global Biorisk Advisory Council, a division of ISSA Inc., the leading association for the cleaning industry. Accreditation is awarded to facilities that follow a high standard of cleaning, disinfection and disease prevention and that follow proper cleaning and disinfecting protocols and workplace practices. The Anaheim Convention Center is the first exhibition facility on the West Coast to be accredited.

We will update this page as more information becomes available to keep you informed of ongoing health and safety measures. From innovative seating arrangements to pre-packaged food, please know we appreciate your commitment in resources, time and risk and will be working hard to reimagine the meeting so that everyone is comfortable in this new reality.
