DEMA Show FAQ
How will COVID-19 impact DEMA Show operations for exhibitors, attendees, visitors and vendors?
Safety of our community is our top priority. We will institute safety measures as required by local and state entities - including mandating masks in doors. Review DEMA's full COVID-related FAQs for more information or contact DEMA at firstname.lastname@example.org or (858) 616-6408.
What is the Las Vegas Convention Center doing to keep visitors safe?
Las Vegas and the LVCC are dedicated to keeping all its visitors safe. As of July 31, the state have mandated masks in-doors and at large gatherings - including in the Convention Center. DEMA will adhere to these regulations and any more that develop on the local and state level.
The Convention Center, which hosts many of the 21,000 trade shows, meetings and conventions in Las Vegas annually, was just awarded the Global Biorisk Advisory Council STAR facility accreditation by the Worldwide Cleaning Industry Association.
