At JOGS Events, the well-being of our staff, partners, and customers is our top priority. We work in close collaboration with the venue, our security vendors, state, local, and federal law enforcement authorities, as well as public health officials and advisors to identify potential risks, evaluate them, and create comprehensive safety and security plans for each event.

The policies and procedures outlined on this page are applicable to all individuals who participate in any JOGS event, including but not limited to exhibitors, attendees, speakers, guests, professionals, media, staff members, workers, contractors, vendors, and security personnel.
