Frequently Asked Questions for 2021 Forum Attendees

2021 Getting to Zero Forum FAQ

What does hybrid mean?

A hybrid event blends an in-person (physical) event and a virtual (online) event, with activities that allow participants to engage with other industry professionals. 2021 Getting to Zero Forum will be an in-person event with virtual access as well. This year’s event will be held at the New York Marriott Marquis in New York City from October 27-29.  We will also be using the CVENT Attendee Hub for virtual attendees to attend and participate in all virtual sessions.

What are the conference fees?

The in-person conference registration fee remains the same, $1,250 USD per person for the full conference with Day Pass options available for Thursday and Friday and a la carte options for pre-conference workshops and tours. The virtual registration fee is $525 USD for the full conference pass with all sessions available to stream. All sessions will be available on-demand for full conference registrants (in-person or virtual) for 90 days after the event. 

Will I be able to change my in person registration to the virtual option?

Yes, you can switch your conference registration until September 27th with an added $25 administration fee. After September 27th, you can still switch your conference registration but the administration fee will be $125. 

Will there be increased sponsorship value for the hybrid event format?

Sponsors will have the opportunity to promote their company in front of both in-person and virtual attendees, resulting in even greater exposure during hybrid events. Depending on the level of sponsorship, there may be additional benefits available to your organization. Contact [email protected] if you have questions or would like to learn more.

Will there be safety procedures in place for in-person attendees?

We are excited to welcome you back to the Getting to Zero Forum! Your health and safety is our top priority. In partnership with the New York Marriott Marquis, Getting to Zero Forum will adhere to all official government and local authority guidance, as well as any venue or location-specific regulations. We will require proof of vaccination and masks at the event. Please plan to bring your vaccine card. We recommend bringing your own masks but we will also have them available onsite. 

How will social distancing be managed during sessions, meals, and networking events, and what impact will this have on social interactions?

All educational sessions will have reduced capacity and spaced out seating to allow for social distancing. Meals and networking events will be hosted with social distancing in mind. Food and beverage are currently being serviced with plated meals by event venue staff behind plexiglass with self-service items eliminated unless fully packaged. Networking events will be structured to allow for free-flowing social interaction guided by safety protocols to enable high-value participant engagement.
