Disclaimer: CLEAR will not share your specific data about your vaccination or test results with the event organization.
To satisfy our entry requirements, all attendees and guests will have to complete a validation process to gain access to the CMA|SIMA 2022 Annual Conference on-site.
- At a CMA|SIMA registration check-in area, attendees will present their valid CLEAR Health Pass for review by CMA|SIMA staff. If all criteria are met, attendees and guests will be given their Conference badge.
- Once an attendee has received their badge, they are free to participate in all Conference activities.
- For the most efficient entry possible, every attendee and guest should enroll with CLEAR before the event to complete their COVID-19 pre-screening. Once your vaccination or test record has been uploaded to the platform, it can typically take up to 30 minutes for your status to be verified. We encourage all attendees to complete this process at least 24 hours prior to arriving at the event.
*Please note bulk badge pick up will not be allowed. Each individual must be validated onsite and pick up their own badge. No exceptions will be allowed.

Assumption of the Risk and Waiver of Liability Relating to Event Access By Participants
The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact.
As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited the congregation of groups of people. Governmental restrictions may change at any time without prior notice. As such, CMA|SIMA – Category Management Association & Shopper Insights Management Association (“CMA|SIMA”) cannot guarantee eligibility to travel or to participate in the CMA|SIMA 2022 Annual Conference (“the Event”) if restrictions change. Additionally, if Event Attendees choose to attend the Event and enter onto the Gaylord Palms Resort (“HOTEL”) premises, they may be exposing themselves to and/or increasing your risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19. CMA|SIMA and its members, officers, officials, directors, instructors, contractors, agents, employees, and any other representative (collectively “Entities”) and the HOTEL will seek to implement preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 consistent with the guidance and recommendations of public health agencies for slowing the transmission and exposure to COVID-19 which may include, but not be limited to, health questionnaires for all Event participants, sanitation procedures, and physical distancing measures at the HOTEL and during the Event.
By registering and/or agreeing to participate in the Event, you, on your behalf and on behalf of each individual included in your registration and/or travelling with you (“Registrant”), acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that you may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by accessing the Event in-person and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death. As such, you accept the terms of this Assumption of the Risk and Waiver of Liability. Registrants understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of yourself and others, including, but not limited to, Entities, HOTEL, their respective employees, agents, contractors, volunteers, and other Event participants. Registrants agree to abide by all preventative measures (collectively “Measures”) put in place by CMA|SIMA, HOTEL, their respective employees, agents, contractors, and volunteers at any time prior to and during the Event. Registrants acknowledge that personal failure to follow these Measures may result in being removed from the Event and all related activities without any refund or reimbursement. Finally, Registrants acknowledge that no promises, representations, or affirmations of fact were made to you concerning the safety or danger associated with traveling to the Event or participating in any activity or interaction related to or associated with the Event.
