TCI EXPO Health & Safety Plan

Public Notice

TCI EXPO is excited to reunite the tree care industry in Indianapolis. Our team is committed to creating an event experience where our attendees, partners, and exhibitors can safely and effectively conduct business and provide quality learning and networking opportunities.

TCIA’s Health & Safety Plan is in accordance with state, local, and Indiana Convention Center requirements. We are actively monitoring and adapting this plan based on the requirements provided to TCIA.

Scheduled Updates and News

As of 9/7/2021, TCIA has been informed by the Indiana Convention Center it is unlikely additional COVID Health and Safety measures will be required by the ICC and/or the State of Indiana for TCI EXPO. So, stated simply, we believe the policies on this webpage for TCI EXPO are unlikely to change. TCIA will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as needed.

As of 8/27/2021, Marion County, IN is considered an area of high COVID transmission by the CDC.  Our health and safety plan is based upon CDC guidance for areas with this level of COVID transmission and will be updated up to the time of EXPO.

As of October 15, 2021, no changes! We are all in!

  • Consider getting vaccinated if you are not already vaccinated. Review this Vaccine Fact Sheet DOWNLOAD PDF provided to TCI EXPO attendees by the State of Indiana.
  • Airlines, all public transportation, and most private transportation services require that you wear a face mask. Don’t forget yours as you travel!

  • Please wear your face mask.  If you forget to bring a face mask, or you lose it, we have extras available at both the TCI EXPO registration booth and the TCI EXPO Help Desk.
  • Please follow all recommended Health & Safety Measures including washing your hands often, covering your cough or sneeze, and staying home if you are sick.
  • TCI EXPO is a “no-shaming zone.” Please treat staff, security and fellow exhibitors/attendees with respect for their mask-wearing decisions. We’ve increased staff and security to provide the BEST customer service and information accessibility.
  • Feeling sick unexpectedly at the show? Medical personnel will be onsite at the Indiana Convention Center first aid station to assist anyone feeling unwell.

WHAT IF I CANCEL BECAUSE I FEEL SICK OR I GET SICK?

  • Attendees can take advantage of our no-questions-asked refund policy, so there is no need to worry! See TCI EXPO cancellation terms here. This policy does not apply to exhibitors.
