  • All event attendees must be vaccinated against COVID-19. Proof of vaccination will be required at the door of the event. We recommend uploading your proof of vaccination using a health tracker application such as the CLEAR app’s Vaccination Validation or the Common Pass app to show at the door, or bringing your physical vaccination card to the event.

  • Masks are required in all areas of the event except while eating dinner. During the cocktail hour, masks may be lowered to drink, but we ask that they be replaced when not drinking. Once dinner is complete, we also ask that you replace your mask for the rest of the program.
  • Cobb Energy Centre staff will also be masked throughout the entirety of the event. Click here to read more about the venue’s safety protocols.

We ask that you please do not attend the event if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, or if you have been exposed to someone diagnosed with COVID-19.
