HEALTH & SAFETY

Your health and safety are paramount for us while planning our upcoming INFLUENCE 2021 in-person experience. NSA is in constant communication with our partners. We are painstakingly following safety measures from federal, state, and local officials while still creating a unique and unmatched opportunity to become a better speaker and build a better business.

While the safety measures are still evolving, here is a shortlist of the safety precautions we're planning for those who join us in Las Vegas:

  • Requiring face coverings for all attendees, hotel staff, AV team, NSA staff, and anyone else participating in the event
  • Limiting the amount of in-person attendees to 500. This space can typically hold 3,000
  • Each room is being configured to provide at least six feet of distance between attendees
  • Proper signage to help attendees navigate the conference space along with marked entrance and exit doors
  • Scattered breaks and traffic flow to negate large gatherings of attendees
  • Daily temperature checks before entering the meeting space
  • Anyone who will not follow our safety guidelines will be removed from the event with no refund

While we're excited to offer the option to attend INFLUENCE 2021 in person, we understand that you need to consider your own health as well as the health of your family. If you're not comfortable joining us in person, we highly encourage you to still join us virtually. Our virtual attendees will still get a powerful experience and have ample opportunities to meet with other attendees, our partners, and presenters from the comfort of their own homes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is INFLUENCE 2021 an in-person event?

INFLUENCE 21 will be a hybrid event! If you want to join us as part of the limited in-person attendees in Las Vegas, we're excited to have you! If you'd like to watch from home, you'll still get the same opportunities to learn and connect from the comfort of your home. 

How many in-person attendees will you have?

As of right now we will only allow 500 attendees to join us live. The space we're using can hold up to 3,000 people, so we'll have plenty of space to maintain social distance. 

Can I register as a virtual attendee and upgrade to in-person later?

As long as space permits, yes! You can add the in-person experience in your MyNSA account. 

How will I view the content at home?

We're using an awesome event program called Socio! From this one place, you can watch the live streams, catch recordings, download handouts, and network with other attendees. We'll send instructions on accessing the event space closer to the event. 

What happens if I get sick right before the event?

First of all, get better! While we'll be sad that you can't join us in Las Vegas, your health and the heath of all our attendees is critical. If you're feeling ill before the in-person event, please stay home and watch the content from our event app. Give us a call and we'll be happy to discuss how use the in-person registration costs for another NSA opportunity!

I can't make it to INFLUENCE, can I watch the recordings?

The session recordings will be available to view in the NSA Digital Vault about a month after the conference! 

Let's get Radical.

See you in Las Vegas.
