Health & Safety Guidelines

HCP’s Health and Safety Policies and Guidelines outline the precautionary measures and personal responsibilities that apply to all individuals participating in the HCP Management Conference and Exhibition. Please do your part to make this a safe and healthy event for everyone. Please respect the personal space preferences of each participant and generally allow for social distancing when possible.


  • Masking is not required at the event, but recommended during large gatherings; properly wearing a high-quality mask or respirator is recommended for everyone aged 2 years or older when indoors.

Adherence to Guidelines

  • Do not attend the program if you have knowingly been exposed to or tested positive for COVID–19.
  • Do not attend the program if you are having active cold or flu like symptoms.
  • Any participant that refuses to adhere to these guidelines may be asked to leave the program, forfeiting any registration fees.

I am attending the HCP Annual Exhibition Conference voluntarily and at my own risk, and I release and waive any claim I might have against the HCP Annual Exhibition Conference and its officers, directors, employees, and agents for any and all liability or responsibility for any illness, damages, or injury whatsoever that I may incur in connection with my attendance at the HCP Annual Exhibition Conference, including, without limitation, as a result of exposure to COVID-19 or the manner in which the HCP Annual Exhibition Conference is conducted.

Cancellation Policy


If the state or federal government imposes social distancing requirements or restrictions on events making it impossible to move forward with an in-person event, it is our intention to move to a virtual format. If virtual programming is impossible, refunds to attendees will be provided.

Exhibitors, Sponsors, Advertisers

In the event the HCP 2024 Conference has to be held virtually, exhibitors’ who have executed contracts to participate in the HCP 2024 Conference will have those contracts carried over and honored and funds applied to participation at the next in-person HCP Conference. All sponsorship and advertising contracts will be honored and executed within a virtual event held in place of the 2024 Annual Conference.

Thank you for doing your part to make this a safe and healthy event for everyone.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Cynthia Pritchard, Director of Events, 518-463-1118, ext. 825
