Important COVID Update
Updated: September 30th, 2021
The WCDS has been consulting with Alberta Health Services (AHS) and the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel to determine the best and safest way to proceed with our event. Based on the advice of AHS and the decision by the Banff Springs to implement the Province’s Restriction Exemption Program, we have made the decision to proceed with the Western Canadian Dealer Summit 2021, as originally scheduled. To ensure a safe event for everyone involved, we will have to implement the following minimum requirements for all attendees.
Further to the Alberta Government’s Restriction Exemption Program, the CMOH Order 43-2021 will apply to events held at the Fairmont Banff Springs:
The Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel will require all attendees, whether staying at the hotel or just attending the WCDS, to provide one of the following:
In light of the recent statistics regarding the percentage of ICU admittances being unvaccinated, this new attendance requirement is intended to help keep everyone safe and reduce the possibility of adding to the already over-run hospitals.
Face Masks: Masks are currently mandatory in all indoor spaces as per Alberta Health Services. General exceptions to indoor masking will also apply to guests:
Hand Sanitizer: Sanitizing stations will be available outside the ballroom and breakout rooms. Sanitizer will be provided on all banquet tables.
WCDS thanks you for your support as we navigate this very difficult situation. The decision to institute these requirements was not taken lightly and were made in an effort to provide everyone with a healthy and safe conference environment.
If you are unable to comply with any of the above requirements, the MDA will be happy to issue you a refund. Refund requests must be received by no later than October 15th.
No refunds will be issued after October 15th. Requests for refunds must be via email and sent to Denise @ email@example.com.
