RILA EVENTS HEALTH & SAFETY NOTICE

as of 8/2/2021

RILA members have expressed the strong desire to return to in-person conferences and events, and RILA is excited to play a critical role providing the forums they need to network with one another, learn from their peers and industry experts, and connect with solutions providers that can assist in their success.
 
That is why we are so excited to bring you LINK2021: The Retail Supply Chain Conference in person! We can’t wait to see you again face-to-face!
 
RILA is committed to do our part in providing as safe an environment as possible for our members, attendees, and staff, but we need your help. If you plan to attend, we trust that you will share in our goal of creating the safest environment possible by observing the following:

Vaccinations Recommended

Begin your travel to the event only after you are fully vaccinated, unless you have a medical or religious reason that would prevent you from doing so. (Fully vaccinated means at least 2 weeks have passed since your second dose of a two-dose vaccine, or the single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.)

Mask Up

RILA will follow the local and national guidance on masks that is current at the time of the conference. As of July 27, the CDC recommends that all people, regardless of vaccination status, should wear face coverings in indoor public settings in areas of high transmission. Therefore, all attendees will be required to wear masks while indoors at RILA-sponsored events.
