The CII Fall conference will be held in-person at the Westin Chicago Riverfront from September 22-24, 2021 and will include a livestream of most events for members who cannot attend. CII will adhere to current CDC recommendations and Chicago's phase 5 local guidlelines pertaining to Covid-19. As with most state and local governments, the conference Covid-19 restrictions will be based on the honor system (meaning we will not require proof of vaccination) and the following stipulations apply: 

  • No masks for vaccinated attendees and social distancing is not enforced
  • Unvaccinated attendees must wear provided masks at all times and maintain social distancing of six feet
  • Attendees must complete a waiver signaling their understanding and agreement to these Covid-19 requirements at the time of registration and possibly again, prior to the start of the conference 
  • Meals will be served and planned closer to the conference date, with particular focus on ensuring the safety of unvaccinated attendees. 
  • There will be no cap on attendees as conference attendance rates typically average 550
  • Meeting rooms will be set in ways to maximize personal space (for example, 6 people at round tables rather than 10)
There is currently no limit on the number of conference attendees. Please note that these guidelines may change as the conference date approaches, based on changes to local and CDC guidelines. Please always refer to the CDC Covid-19 website as well as Chicago's Covid-19 website for the most up-to-date information.
