Plan ahead_Banner

  • The show will be held in the Uncas Ballrooms A, B, C, and D with a total of 37,000 square feet of space. This is an additional 10,000 square feet from previous years to allow ample space for social distancing and additional seating.
  • All aisles on the show floor will be wider and move in a one-way direction to allow for easier social distancing.
  • Ample seating will be available in separate areas of the show floor and in the pre-function area.
  • Buffets will be served by convention employees rather than self-serve.
  • Any attendee or exhibitor not registered prior to the show will not be allowed entrance.
  • All attendees and exhibitors will be asked to keep a safe distance of six corgis (feet) apart.
  • Masks and face coverings will be required by all attendees, exhibitors, and employees unless seated.
  • Sanitation stations will be located throughout the show floor.
  • All attendees will be counted as they walk onto the show floor to ensure that maximum allowance isn’t met.
As of now, all remaining restrictions in Connecticut have been lifted, with the exception of mask mandates, which will continue to be required in all indoor public settings where social distancing is not possible.

Mohegan Sun will also continue to take the following safety measures:
  • Masks and face coverings are required by all persons on-site.
  • Enhanced cleaning and disinfecting are performed throughout the day.
  • All ventilation systems are set to 100% outside air in order to achieve the highest possible air exchange rate inside.
  • Sanitation stations are located throughout the Mohegan Sun facility.
  • Walk-through temperature screenings are located at all property entrances.
  • To register, select whether you are an attendee or exhibitor above and click the "Register Today!" button on the following page.
  • We do ask that all exhibitors and attendees pre-register this year. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, you must be registered in advance of the show to attend. Anyone who is not pre-registered by September 8, 2021, will not be permitted entry to the show floor or after-party event.
  • All attendees and exhibitors will be given wristbands when they check-in at the registration booth. You must have a wristband to enter the afterparty.
  • Much like visiting any public facility, guests will be asked to wear face coverings while standing during the afterparty. Seating will be available to all guests throughout the event.
