Safety Precautions at the Hyatt

To keep our attendees safe and healthy, registration will be limited (with NO on-site registration), and the hotel will require all participants to take COVID safety precautions.

Hyatt Hotels and Resorts require that face masks or coverings must be worn at all times when in all businesses. This includes the public spaces, outdoor areas, and hallways of the hotel. When in the food and beverage outlets, masks will be required when not seated at a table and when placing orders at the bar.

Rather than plated meals, we will serve individually packaged breakfast and snack items throughout the conference. Lunch will be on your own, and our welcome event will be held outdoors on the Hyatt’s terrace overlooking Lady Bird Lake. 

Limited Hotel Services

Please note before booking your reservation that some hotel services, such as room service, will be limited during your stay because of reduced staffing due to COVID-19.
