    Health & Safety Policy

    ACAMS considers the health and safety of all conference attendees a priority. We also encourage all attendees to take necessary protective measures for their individual health circumstances. While masks are no longer required, they remain optional for anyone choosing to wear one. Sanitization stations will also be available throughout the meeting space and those that wish to maintain social distance should do so. If you want to wear a mask but forget yours, please visit our Registration Services Desk for a disposable mask.

    Dress Code

    Business attire is suitable for all conference sessions and receptions. For the pre-conference training day, business casual is appropriate. Conference Center room temperatures can be on the cooler side, so we recommend dressing with this in mind.


    Dietary Requirements

    If you have any special dietary requirements, please contact us at least 30 days before the start of the event. Our team will do their best to accommodate these requests, however requests received less than 30 days before the conference cannot be guaranteed.


    Name Badges

    You will be asked to present photo ID before being issued with a conference badge onsite. It is very important to wear your badge during the conference as entrance to all sessions, the exhibition hall, and networking receptions is by badge only. There is a US$50 replacement charge for lost badges, payable at the registration desk. Conference badges are not transferable and must not be shared.
