Las Vegas Welcomes Back Conventions: What Will They Be Like?

Published on October 2, 2020 by

The Governor of Nevada announced this week that conventions and meetings may return to Las Vegas once again, although limited in size. In this first phrase, the green light has been given to events in Las Vegas with less than 1,000 attendees total, and no more than 250 in a single room. What will Las Vegas conventions look like when they return? Per the Governor, Nevada aims to be the safest destination to bring your employees, customers and families. So they’ll be different for sure! MGM released their plan this week that outlines what conventions and meetings will look like at MGM Resorts in the future that we’ll be reviewing titled “Convene with Confidence.”

MGM Health Pass Protocol:
Step One: Prior to the event, attendees are asked to download the CLEAR mobile app and set up their account. Their identity is verified by uploading an identifying document and snapping a quick selfie.
Step Two: Before entering the venue, attendees open the app, verify their identity with a selfie and answer a series of health survey questions.
Step Three: Upon arrival at the meeting or event, attendees are met by an Impact Health professional for on-site, rapid testing, with results expected within approximately 20 minutes. Users can access these results by securely linking their testing account to their Health Pass through the app.
Step Four: Attendees approach a kiosk, where they receive a temperature check and scan their QR code to share their health insights. Depending on their COVID-related health information and their recent test results, users are issued a red or green Health Pass on their app.
• If the result is a green Health Pass, that information, combined with their event-specific ticket or credential, will grant entrance into the event or conference.
• If the result is a red Health Pass, MGM’s best-in-class response protocols will be activated immediately for further testing, referral to care for the guest and consultation with local health authorities.
