FAQs for the 37th Space Symposium

(Revision: November 22, 2021)

 

Will Space Symposium be in-person or virtual? 

It will be both, as there will be the traditional in-person programming and exhibits, as well as virtual accessibility allowing persons unable to travel to access the same information and presentations offered to our in-person attendees. This hybrid program model will allow Space Foundation to engage more of the global space ecosystem than ever before.

 

Will there be virtual access for persons to participate in the Space Symposium program and its presentations?

Yes. Space Foundation will provide virtual access to keynote remarks, presentations, panels and awards programs to allow those persons unable to join this year’s program in-person to share in the Space Symposium experience. Details on this package, including pricing will be released in May.

 

Will social distancing be possible at the Space Symposium?

Space Foundation has been working with The Broadmoor team to comply with all public health and safety protocols to ensure the safety of every Symposium participant.  That includes social distancing and other health and safety protocols. Attendance numbers in select rooms will be limited to ensure social distancing and other safety compliance.

 

Will Space Foundation require attendees to be vaccinated to attend Symposium?

Space Foundation encourages its 37th Space Symposium attendees to be vaccinated and continue to practice COVID-19 mitigation practices. Those mitigation efforts will continue to be practiced throughout the entire course of the 37th Space Symposium operations.

 

Will international attendees be allowed to attend this year’s program?

International visitors are anticipated for the 37th Space Symposium, but all travel into the United States will be governed by existing rules and directives of the U.S. government regarding the entry of foreign visitors into the country. If travel from those countries into the United States is allowed, they will be warmly welcomed at the 37th Space Symposium.

 

What type of precautions will The Broadmoor and Space Foundation have in place to mitigate the risk of coronavirus exposure?

For more than 60 years, The Broadmoor has been a Forbes Five-Star/AAA Five Diamond resort at the leading edge of service and care of its guests. That includes providing a safe and productive meeting and guest experience for everyone who visits The Broadmoor. Recently, The Broadmoor began participating in the Ecolab Science Certified™ program, which utilizes science-backed products and protocols to help deliver a higher level of cleanliness and to reduces guests’ risk of exposure to bacteria/viruses.

To help ensure they are following rigorous guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting meeting rooms, banquet events, lobbies, tradeshow and exhibit areas as well as individual guest rooms, they have begun partnering with Ecolab, the global leader in water, hygiene, and infection-prevention solutions and services, with decades of experience in the science of cleaning and hygiene. Ecolab also works with hospitals, hotels and restaurants around the world to provide optimal hygienic environments.

The Broadmoor recently earned the Ecolab Science Certified seal – a visible symbol of their commitment to maintaining the health of their guests, and offering reassurance that they are practicing cleaner, safer sanitation methods through comprehensive, science-backed products and protocols.

At the 37th Space Symposium, these practices and protocols will be in operation in all assembly, meeting and guest rooms, as well as exhibit hall spaces and other public gathering locations at The Broadmoor. Additional hand-sanitizing locations will also be located throughout the Space Symposium’s operations.

 

What else is the Broadmoor doing to mitigate risks to guests and attendees of the Space Symposium?

The Broadmoor is proactively addressing the health concerns of guests and event attendees. They have produced a comprehensive overview of their health, safety and certifications that will make every attendee’s experience at Space Symposium a safe and healthy one. Those details are available here.

 

What methods/technology will be available to safeguard against COVID-19?

The Broadmoor’s staff and operations are trained and certified with Ecolab Science Certification, one of the highest standards recognized by the hospitality and health care communities. As part of that training and certification, The Broadmoor follows rigorous guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting meeting rooms, banquet events, lobbies, tradeshow and exhibit areas, as well as individual guest rooms.

At the 37th Space Symposium, these practices and protocols will be in operation in all assembly, meeting and guest rooms, as well as all exhibit hall areas and other public gathering locations at The Broadmoor. Additional hand-sanitizing locations will also be located throughout the Space Symposium’s operations for attendee protection and to encourage good health practices.

 

How will food service be handled with social distancing protocols in place?

Food and beverage service provided by The Broadmoor will adhere to all safety and health protocols put forward by Federal, State and Local authorities.

 

What type of direction/guidance has the State of Colorado and the City/Public Health Department given to allow the Space Symposium to operate this year’s Space Symposium in this environment?

Space Foundation continues to work closely with The Broadmoor to follow all public health and safety guidance to ensure a safe and successful 37th Space Symposium. That includes adhering to all guidance and directives of the State of Colorado’s Department of Public Health and Environment and other authorities.

With our commitment to the adherence to those directives, a variance has been obtained for the 37th Space Symposium to convene this coming August. The variance will allow for 50% occupancy per meeting room.
