Updated safety regulations at Sensors Converge 2021

On August 24, 2021, the San Jose city council voted unanimously to require all attendees and staff to provide proof of vaccination in order to enter any event of 50 or more people at city facilities, including the San Jose Convention Center. Questex will be following this new guidance for Sensors Converge 2021. (This decision supersedes the California Department of Public Health announcement that vaccine verification or negative testing requirement would be applied to indoor events involving 1,000 or more participants).  

Participants will be asked to provide proof of vaccination before the event starts. Additional details on the vaccine policy will be provided upon registration. Per the new regulation, we will not be accepting negative tests as proof of entry.  

If you cannot participate because of this policy, or due to travel restrictions, we encourage you to attend the Sensors Converge hybrid event. More details are here.
