IISE Health & Safety Partnership

Better together, safely.

IISE is excited to welcome attendees, exhibitors, and partners to Seattle for an in-person Annual Conference & Expo.

IISE Duty of Care

IISE continues to prioritize safety and health of all attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, speakers, and staff. IISE is working closely with the Hyatt Regency and their Hyatt’s Global Care & Cleanliness Commitment to ensure that Annual Conference 2022 will be a success.

Please note safety and health measures will evolve based on current CDC recommendations and any building, city, state, and federal mandates. And the safest way to travel is to be vaccinated. 

Hotel

IISE will facilitate measures to ensure health and safety in all spaces where in-person interaction takes place. Our host venue, Hyatt Regency Seattle, has been accredited in the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STARTM Facility program. This acknowledges that the hotel’s protocols for cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention to protect guests and associates complies with GBAC’s 20-point auditing system. It also requires guests to wear face masks or coverings in hotel indoor public areas, as well as outdoors where social distancing is not feasible.
