Health and Safety Measures
GPA Midstream and GPSA encourage our attendees, speakers, exhibitors, sponsors, and employees to exercise prudent health and safety measures. The Convention venues, Marriott Rivercenter and Marriott Riverwalk, have adopted protocols to facilitate travel with confidence during the COVID-19 pandemic. Similarly the CDC provides guidance for large gatherings such as the GPA Midstream Convention. The State of Texas has also issued, as of May 12, 2021, Guidance for Vaccinated and Unvaccinated Individuals.
As of August 6, 2021:
- GPA Midstream will make clean, disposable facemasks available for those who prefer to wear a mask.
- GPA Midstream will offer a hands-free check-in experience to minimize touch points during the check-in process. Attendees may simply scan their provided QR code with their phones to check in and print their badges. Attendees will then grab their lanyards to complete the check-in process. Our event app will be available for event-specific materials and information.
- Hand sanitizer will be available in meeting rooms and at the registration and check-in area.
- Signage will be placed throughout the venue recommending health and safety protocol and attendee behavior expectations.
GPA Midstream remains mindful of those who could still be facing travel restrictions or those who may be uncomfortable traveling and attending a large event. Many of our speakers have committed to recording their presentations, which GPA Midstream will make available for on-demand viewing Oct. 18 – 29 for a fee. Those that register for the San Antonio event will receive full access to the recorded presentations at no additional charge.
