Health + Safety Information

EDspaces is excited to welcome back education design professionals to the event where technology, space and pedagogy converge. Our team is committed to creating an event experience where our customers, partners, and employees can safely and effectively conduct business.

We are moving forward with a face-to-face event in November and are optimistic that we will be able to host EDspaces 2021 safely.

The EDspaces team is monitoring the COVID-19 situation daily and following the guidelines set forth by federal and local governments and health agencies. We are also in close contact with local authorities in Pittsburgh and our show partners. In addition, we are working with other show teams within Emerald who are staging shows (including 19 successful August events) ahead of EDspaces to ensure the highest level of control measures and best practices are implemented.

Read on to find out what health measures we have in place and how you too will play a role in moving business forward safely
