CLEAR Health Pass
As part of our commitment to health and safety, we are excited to announce that we are using CLEAR to ensure we’re following a standard health screening protocol. Health Pass by CLEAR will help make your entry to the Annual Conference seamless as each conference day, participants will be answering a series of questions on the Health Pass app and will be required to show their confirmed, completed Health Pass survey.

Enroll in CLEAR prior to the conference to ensure an easier, faster entry to the NCMGMA Annual Conference. It takes less than 2 minutes to sign up. Please follow the below instructions to get started:

  • Your one-time enrollment only takes a few minutes. Just download the CLEAR app deep link for your event, press “Get Started” on the Health Pass tile, and confirm your event code: NCMGMA
    • Already a CLEAR Member? Just use the email address for your existing membership and snap a selfie to confirm that you are you.
    • New to CLEAR? Grab your ID (driver's license or passport) and your phone - then you'll never need your ID for CLEAR again!

Alliance Sponsors & Exhibitors
Please do not forget to thank our Alliance Sponsors and Exhibitors for joining us while you go through the exhibit hall. We are glad to have them and they are essential to our conference success.

Dress Attire
Dress attire is business casual. Hotels are notorious for being cold one minute and stuffy the next, so we recommend dressing in layers for your comfort.

Suit-Casing Policy
NCMGMA Suit-Casing Policy states that any individual who is observed to be soliciting business in the aisles or other public spaces, in another company's booth, or in violation of any portion of the Exhibition Policy, will be asked to leave immediately. Suit-casing may also take the form of commercial activity conducted from a hotel guest room or hospitality suite; a restaurant, club, or any other public place of assembly. For the purposes of this policy, suit-casing violations may occur at venues other than the exhibition floor and at other events. NCMGMA must be informed of any hospitality suites and expressed consent must be received prior to the event.
