Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

Important Announcement Regarding Coronavirus

Updated 5/6/2020

As the state of Massachusetts begins to open, we continue to monitor the situation closely. Our top priority continues to be the health and well-being of all attendees, speakers and exhibitors. We recognize the public health concerns surrounding Coronavirus (Covid-19) and plan to take extra safety measures at this upcoming event. We will follow the guidance posted by government and healthcare authorities and abide by their recommendations.

DeviceTalks Boston 2020

We are looking forward to welcoming you to the upcoming DeviceTalks Boston event, taking place September 24-25, 2020. Please be assured that our top priority is to take the necessary steps to ensure the health and safety of our event sponsors, speakers, partners and attendees, as well as that of our event operations team members.

We remain in constant contact with our exhibitors, sponsors, partners, and speakers. Should there be any changes to the current status, we will notify all parties, including DeviceTalks Boston attendees and any others as appropriate, of any changes or updates.

Hynes Convention Center

The Hynes Convention Center is also closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation carefully. Our event operations team is reviewing the existing emergency operations plans for the venue, and monitoring announcements from the local public health department. The Hynes Convention Center itself has enacted a number of safety measures to ensure the safety of our attendees, speakers and exhibitors including:

  • Increased disinfection schedule of door handles and push bars across the facilities
  • Free standing hand sanitizer units in all public pass through areas
  • Individual hand sanitizer units in various locations across the facility
  • System of spray and disinfectant application at facilities after business hours

Health, Safety and Wellbeing

While we wish we could say we will continue to operate as “business as usual”, the Coronavirus outbreak obliges us to be even more diligent, conscientious, and responsive in our event planning. What remains unchanging is our foremost priority, and our guarantee – we will do our upmost to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of the DeviceTalks exhibitors, speakers, partners and attendees, along with WTWH Media’s event operations team.

Thank you for your patience during this unique period of time. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly.

Best,
Tom
