Sunscreen Symposium

Hello Sunscreen Symposium attendees!  Since the Symposium is only two weeks away we wanted to reach out and let everyone know our covid-19 safety protocols for the event.

  • Masks are mandatory indoors on Disney property.  This will be enforced during the Sunscreen Symposium, absolutely no exceptions.  Disney will be enforcing this policy and will only give one warning to attendees not wearing masks.  Please BYOM (bring your own mask).
  • Disney is sending out covid-19 waivers to attendees and those staying on Disney property.
  • Exhibitor hall space has been doubled compared to the last Symposium while keeping about the same number of exhibitor booths to space out booths more and allow for social distancing.
  • The seating area in the exhibitor hall has more tables with fewer chairs at each to allow for social distancing.
  • Lunch hours have been extended to reduce crowds and lines for food.
  • Speaker presentations will be live streamed to screens in the seating area in the exhibit hall so attendees don’t have to be in the same room with the speakers to watch the presentations.
  • There will be no physical agendas this year to minimize the risk of items being accidentally swapped and handled by multiple attendees.
  • There will be no dance floor at the gala this year; instead there will be a focus on games that can be played at a distance.
  • There will be hand sanitizer in our goody bags!

We’re continuing to monitor CDC guidelines and may put additional restrictions in place as recommended by the CDC if needed within the next couple weeks.  As an organization run by scientists, for scientists, we intend to follow all CDC guidelines regarding masking and social distancing, and do support all CDC recommendations including vaccines.

Thank you for sticking with us this year!
