Join Us in the AWHONN Bubble
We’re ready for the 2021 AWHONN Convention and are excited to partner with you to experience a safe, valuable event. We are redesigning the Convention environment to address safety concerns and committing to a heightened level of protective measures beyond what is standard as a condition of hosting the 2021 AWHONN Convention.
While in the Convention space, AWHONN will ensure that only participants will have exclusive access to the meeting rooms and public areas of the Convention Center. There are no other groups scheduled to meet during that time, and only those who have agreed to respect our safety measures will be allowed in that space. Although there will be other hotel guests, and we cannot guarantee those guests will follow the AWHONN safety measures, we do anticipate that because of the host property’s location, away from attractions, there will be limited transient visitors to the hotel.
Yes, WE CAN!
In partnership with attendees, AWHONN will host this year’s Convention with a can-do attitude.
For a full list of hotel safety protocols, please visit the Gaylord website to see how they plan to take care of you outside of the AWHONN Convention space.
The Bubble Ground Rules: Masks, Wrist Bands, and Sanitizer
While in the Convention space and beyond, we recommend that participants wear masks and physical distancing wrist bands and use sanitizer frequently.
You Have Questions. We have answers.
Q. Why are you having an in-person Convention during a surge in the state of Florida?
A. AWHONN has been planning to reunite our community for a year, and more than 1,200 people from across the country have already committed to attend this event in person. This response has presented us with the opportunity to demonstrate that, with the proper safety protocols in place, this community of nurses can continue to learn in any environment.
Q. What if I don’t want to attend in person?
A. AWHONN will be offering a hybrid, live digital experience to attendees who would like to attend but do not want to meet in person. Nursing contact hours will be available through this option. Session information and details can be found on the Convention website.
Q. Is it possible that you will cancel the Convention?
A. At this time, we do not have any plans to cancel the Convention. Should the CDC, federal, state, or local governments redefine in-person gatherings, we will follow those recommendations.
