Plan Your Visit

Covid safety policy

MICE 2023 will be implementing the following measures to reduce the public health risk for our attendees, exhibitors, and staff, as well as the community at Boston University. While many COVID policies have relaxed in our daily lives, MICE is a crowded indoor event and there is increased risk of viral transmission.

  • Masking will be required for attendees, exhibitors, and staff in all indoor MICE spaces. Masks must be worn at all times unless eating or drinking.

  • Masks, hand sanitizer stations, and other necessary PPE will be provided.

  • Attendees are encouraged to register for Saturday or Sunday free admission to MICE and stay up-to-date with our safety protocols and announcements.

  • Capacity limits will be in effect for the exhibition floor, workshop, and panel areas. We will also provide several satellite spaces for reading, eating and gathering.

  • Outdoor spaces will be made available and encouraged for eating and drinking.

  • MICE recommends all attendees, exhibitors and staff test for COVID-19 within 48-hours prior to the event.

For Exhibitors only
  • To reduce crowding, we are limiting our Small and Half Table Spaces to one exhibitor per designated space. If you would like to table with another exhibitor, apply separately and make a request to sit next to one another.

  • We ask that only exhibitors are present behind your table.

general questions

What if large gatherings are prohibited in October by the school, city, state, or CDC guidelines?

If MICE can not be safely held on September 30 - October 1, we unfortunately will not hold an in person or virtual festival this year. Exhibitor table fees will be fully refunded, but please be mindful of cancellation policies for any other travel plans you make.

How can I protect myself and others at MICE?

MICE believes in using all the tools we have available to us to keep our community healthy and we appreciate your help! Don’t come if you feel sick, wear an effective mask, and voluntarily test yourself within 48 hours prior to the event. We’re all a few swabs away from helping to protect others as we rejoin large indoor events.

What kind of air filtration system does the MICE venue have?

Boston University spaces and classrooms are equipped with double filtration: hospital grade in-room filters and updated filters in the AC systems in response to the pandemic. However, please be aware that any large-scale indoor event carries risk of virus transmission.
