However, capacity is capped by registration type (law firm, corporate, gov't) in an effort to keep the ratio of corporate vs. law firm attendees somewhat equal. With limited capacity and open registration we ask that organizations are conscientious of this when registering so that we can keep our attendance diversified.

The Health & Safety of our Attendees

We are committed to ensuring the 2020 Mock Program (March 11) and Next Gen Summit (March 12) will be a safe space where our attendees can feel at-ease and participate fully in the programming and activities without worry.

For the health and safety of our attendees, we request that all attendees evaluate their health and the health of those they’re in close contact with before attending. We encourage all attendees that are sick or showing symptoms of illness to stay home. For those who have traveled to Level 3/2/1 CDC countries in the past 14 days we ask that you please do not attend. Please click here to see which countries currently apply. 

If any of the above pertains to you, please email us at nextgensummit@chipsnetwork.org as soon as possible.

At this time, we have 160 registered Next Gen Summit attendees. All attendees, except for one, are from the United States (the non US attendee is from Canada). The travel restrictions implemented by the U.S. Government on January 31, 2020 remain in effect and according to the CDC’s latest situation summary, the health risk from Coronavirus for the general American public is considered low at this time.

Steps we are taking to ensure our attendees stay healthy:

  • Implementing a “No Handshake” policy and requesting that all attendees wash their hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • Asking attendees to follow the guidance of the CDC for everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses.
  • Providing attendees access to hand sanitizer.
  • Working with our event host to ensure wipe downs of all common touch areas.
