What to Expect: Our Health & Safety Plan

 

We look forward to seeing you in person at Investments & Wealth Forum - Fort Lauderdale. We are excited to welcome our Institute community back to Fort Lauderdale to meet new colleagues, celebrate old ones and develop new skills and strategies to better serve private wealth clients. 

 

The Investments & Wealth Institute's priority is keeping everyone safe. Our team is committed to creating an event experience where attendees, exhibitors, partners, and employees can safely come together. The conference will remain both in-person and on-demand. This year’s Investments & Wealth Forum - Fort Lauderdale has been planned with your health and safety in mind. We are working closely with the Diplomat and federal, state, and local authorities to stay in accordance with COVID-191 advice and guidelines.

 

We understand that decisions of health and risk are personal. If your preference of attending in person has changed since you first registered, you may change your registration to on-demand. Simply:

      1.      Log into your Institute dashboard here
      2.      Select My Conferences from the left navigation.
      3.      Select Manage Registration.
      4.      Select how you will attend.
      5.      Select the Add To Cart button. ~ Note: This does not add anything to your cart – it just updates your record and will send you back to the manage registration page.

We are committed to implementing conscious and intentional measures to, in addition to combatting COVID-19, promote healthy best practices. Here's what to expect if attending in person:

      • Extra Safety Checks: Before the doors open, the hotel staff will work hard to ensure the venue is safe, clean, and ready for our Institute community!
      • Low Contact Registration: When you arrive, please come and pick up your registration packet which will include your credentials, lanyard, on-demand login, and a personal hand sanitizer.

REMINDER: If you do not want to attend in person and do not want to transfer your registration to an on-demand virtual attendance, please reach out to our conferences team to transfer your registration to one of our future conferences at no additional cost or for a refund. To contact conferences, email conferences@i-w.org.

 

Below we have aggregated current state and local health measures in place, and how you too will play a role in moving the Institute community forward safely.


 

1. The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic and is contagious. COVID-19 can cause serious and potentially life-threatening illnesses and even death. The Institute has taken and will continue to take all reasonable precautions to prevent against the presence and spread of the disease but cannot and does not guarantee against exposure; and therefore, in choosing to attend the Wealth Advisor Forum attendees acknowledge that they are assuming a risk that you may be exposing yourself to COVID-19 and its potential health risks.
