WE ARE EXCITED TO WELCOME YOU BACK TO ISC WEST! At ISC West and all Reed Exhibitions events, your health and safety is our top priority. As part of this commitment, we’ve taken proactive steps and implemented new guidelines and policies to help support a safe and comfortable experience.

At this time, in accordance with state requirements, unvaccinated individuals should wear approved face coverings.

By not wearing an approved face covering, you certify that you are fully vaccinated and that other guests in the area can rely on that as a truthful statement.

Please respect that individuals may choose to continue using face coverings based on their personal preference. We will rely on our guests to accurately follow the guidelines based on their vaccination status.

At this time, everyone attending ISC West will be required to undergo temperature screening prior to entering. Based on public health guidance, anyone with a temperature above 100.4 degrees (F) will not be permitted entry to ISC West.


ISC West has worked closely with The Venetian Resort and Sands Expo & Convention Center to implement cleaning and sanitization standards that meet or exceed the recommendations of the CDC. It is the responsibility of everyone to maintain personal hygiene, including washing your hands frequently. The Venetian Clean Commitment can be found here.


We have adjusted our layout and implemented exhibitor guidelines with capacity management and physical distancing in mind. Please follow all floor, directional and distance markings and signage.


Operational adjustments may occur throughout the event. Please adhere to all signage and direction from all staff, including our Safety Ambassadors. 

Reed Exhibitions and ISC West are committed to upholding the health & safety standards outlined on this page. We will continue to monitor the guidance of public health authorities and government agencies going forward and will make appropriate adjustments in the future based on that guidance - additional details about policies and procedures will be posted here as they are made available.
