A note about our event: We believe in the power of gathering our community to share, inspire, and strengthen our industry through live events. While we hope to get together in person, we are exploring digital options to augment the live experience, and if needed, replace the live event if conditions aren't right for us to meet face to face in September. The health and wellbeing of the Interop community is our top priority therefore our planning efforts for the September event include increased cleaning/sanitation, hygiene advocacy, increased availability to medical staff, travel restriction mitigation, physical distancing measures and modified food service, to name a few.
