What safety measures are being taken at the in-person event?


While rolling out the red carpet for NAPE-goers, the George R. Brown Convention Center will be adhering to new safety measures implemented since the coronavirus pandemic began. Following are some of the highlights:

  • Touchless technologies including sliding doors at all entry points, light switch sensors in conference rooms, permanent door stops, water fountains, paper towel and soap dispensers, and payment options
  • Updated cleaning and disinfection measures throughout the facility with a focus on increasing frequency of disinfection in high-traffic areas and commonly touched points
  • Updated sanitizer dispensers with ION Pure plastic with antibacterial agents
  • UV disinfection technology on all escalator handrails
  • Upgraded Merv13 filters throughout the facility
  • Sneeze guards for food and beverage operations
  • COVID-19 signage for social distancing and cleanliness, rope and stanchions for queuing, etc.
  • Elevators are restricted to no more than two people at a time prioritizing ADA accessibility
  • Meeting rooms cleaned with an electrostatic spray disinfection system at the end of each day
  • Three mobile coronavirus-killing air purifiers developed by Integrated Viral Protection (ivpair.com)
