Our Philosophy on Safety
NESPA believes that a successful event means caring for our attendees, vendors, members, and the industry at large. This year’s show will follow industry best practices and local guidance to create the safest possible environment for all attendees to feel comfortable engaging with each other while respecting individual status regarding vaccination.
Requirements for admission to The Pool and Spa Show
All attendees at The Pool and Spa Show in Atlantic City will be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test within 72 hours of arrival. Click here for Verification and Testing hours. Vaccine checks and testing will only need to be verified once upon your arrival at the Show; daily checks or testing will not be required. Checks will be done at the Convention Center, and badges will be marked as verified for entrance throughout the week. Please have your vaccination or negative test result in hand before arrival at the Convention Center to expedite this process.
The State of New Jersey has a requirement in place that, regardless of vaccination or testing status, masks are required to be worn in all state buildings, including the Atlantic City Convention Center. All of the above requirements apply to both exhibitors and attendees
Registration, verification, and the attendee experience
To reduce lines and improve the overall experience, we encourage attendees to have proof of vaccination or negative test in hand upon arrival at the convention center. There will be limited availability for onsite rapid testing. If you are going to present a negative test result, make plans now on how best to schedule your test in advance of arriving at the Show. Individuals who get tested onsite will be subject to longer waits. For the best possible experience, please have your information ready for verification, including a photo ID, when you arrive at the Convention Center.
