To Our Loyal Exhibitors,
The SWVS staff and I are thrilled to be back hosting our annual live event, this September 23-26th in San Antonio, and look forward to seeing you there. Enthusiasm among our attendees is also strong, as early registrations are on par with 2019 numbers, a clear sign that participants are very eager to reconnect face-to-face.
To ensure a safe return and productive experience for everyone, the SWVS team has developed a safety plan — together with our convention partners — that incorporates the latest certifications, cleaning protocols and safety products recommended for event venues. Please see the plan’s highlights below. Your health and peace-of-mind remain our priorities, and we’ll be sure to update you with any new developments.
