Register Now

The health and safety of our sponsors, exhibitors, speakers, and attendees at our upcoming 48th Annual Conference on Blasting & Explosives Technique at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas, Nev., from Jan. 28 – Feb. 2, 2022, is of utmost importance to ISEE.

We are committed to following the guidance of the CDC, state and local authorities, as well as the Las Vegas Paris Hotel. Below are a few of the safety protocols you can expect at ISEE’s 48th Annual Conference on Blasting & Explosives Technique.

COVID Compliance Officer

This year we are adding a COVID Compliance Officer to our exhibit show floor. The officer will ensure attendees are wearing a mask (except when eating or drinking), help point out hand sanitizing stations and will have the latest CDC updates for attendees.

Mask During the Show  

Masks are required indoors in the State of Nevada. ISEE attendees will be required to wear masks as follows:  

  • In exhibit booths and indoor exhibit facilities.  
  • In conference and keynote rooms.  
  • ISEE shuttle buses and any ISEE transportation services.  
  • ISEE will have safety ambassadors throughout the exhibit floor providing masks to those who may need one. 
  • ISEE’s booth on the exhibit floor will have additional information.

Some of the safety swag annual conference attendees will be given include face masks, networking bracelets and hand sanitizer.

NEW!!! Networking Bracelets: At the registration desk there will be three color bracelets, red, yellow and green. Please place the bracelet on your arm to indicate your networking comfort level. If you need additional bracelets, they can be found at the registration area.

RED:  No handshakes or contact for me

YELLOW:  I’m open to handshakes or moderate contact

GREEN:  I’m open to all appropriate contact

ISEE will provide a mask and hand sanitizer in every conference bag picked up at registration desk!

 

Hotel Meeting Rooms

To enhance your comfort, ISEE has worked with the hotel to enhance your comfort during the ISEE Annual Conference:

  • Meeting rooms will have additional space between chairs. For rooms with tables, that means fewer chairs per table.  For rooms that are set theatre style (without tables) there will be additional space between each chair.
  • Water bottles instead of “water stations.” Thank you to our sponsors for helping offset the cost of having water bottles available to all our attendees.
  • Separate microphones for all speakers, including cleaning microphones between each session.
  • Staff and volunteers assisting with additional hand sanitizer and directions to stations.

 

ISEE will continue to update our website as new information is released.  ISEE will continue to follow the guidelines established by the CDC, State of Nevada, Clark County, and the Paris Hotel to ensure your safety and a great experience.  We look forward to seeing you at the Conference.


International Travel:

What You Need to Know

 

Requirement for Proof of Negative COVID-19 Test or Documentation of Recovery from COVID-19

  • If you plan to travel internationally, you will need to get a COVID-19 viral test (regardless of vaccination status or citizenship) no more than 1 day before you travel by air into the United States. You must show your negative result to the airline before you board your flight.
  • If you recently recovered from COVID-19, you may instead travel with documentation of recovery from COVID-19 (i.e., your positive COVID-19 viral test result on a sample taken no more than 90 days before the flight’s departure from a foreign country and a letter from a licensed healthcare provider or a public health official stating that you were cleared to travel).

Are You Fully Vaccinated for Air Travel to the United States?

You are considered fully vaccinated:

  • 2 weeks (14 days) after your dose of an accepted single-dose vaccine
  • 2 weeks (14 days) after your second dose of an accepted 2-dose series
  • 2 weeks (14 days) after you received the full series of an accepted COVID-19 vaccine (not placebo) in a clinical trial
  • 2 weeks (14 days) after you received 2 doses of any “mix-and-match” combination of accepted COVID-19 vaccines administered at least 17 days apart*

If you don’t meet these requirements, you are NOT fully vaccinated.

* CDC has not recommended the use of mix-and-match COVID-19 vaccine primary series. However, such strategies are increasingly common in many countries outside of the United States. Therefore, for the of purpose of interpreting vaccination records for travel to the United States, CDC will accept combinations of accepted COVID-19 vaccines.

 

There are several testing sites in Las Vegas. Please see link below:

We encourage you to visit the CDC website for the latest information.

Moreover, ISEE is in regular communication with the Las Vegas Paris Hotel, the location of the 48th Annual Conference. The Las Vegas Paris Hotel is providing ISEE with regular updates as to new guidance coming from the state of Nevada, Clark County, and the City of Las Vegas. ISEE will post these updates on our conference web page, and provide regular updates to our sponsors, exhibitors, speakers, and confirmed and prospective attendees. Currently, the Paris Hotel & Casino is requiring hotel personnel and guests to wear masks. It is the recommendation of the CDC that all individuals, who are able, be vaccinated to reduce the chance of contracting COVID.

 

ISEE will continue to update our website as new information is released.  ISEE will continue to follow the guidelines established by the CDC, State of Nevada, Clark County, and the Paris Hotel to ensure your safety and a great experience.  We look forward to seeing you at the Conference.
