WHERE IS WSM 2022 LOCATED?

CALVIN L. RAMPTON SALT PALACE CONVENTION CENTER
• 100 S W TEMPLE
• SALT LAKE CITY, UT 84101

WHAT IS THE ATTENDEE COVID POLICY?

Now that the wintersports industry will be engaging in public meetings, trade events and on-snow experiences this winter, taking steps to safeguard and respect public health is an important consideration for WSM. “Health and safety is paramount,” writes the WSM event coordinator, “As we plan for this coming January, one of our most important considerations is how best to safely bring together skiers, snowboarders, manufacturers, volunteers, and staff from around the world. As part of our commitment to this community, we will be requiring all participants attending Winter Sports Market, or WSM-affiliated events, in person in Utah to be fully vaccinated or show a negative test result no more than 48 hours old. We are providing this information now to ensure that all in-person participants feel comfortable attending and can adjust their travel plans if needed.”

Today’s announcement adds that all vaccinations must be completed at least two weeks prior to traveling to the festival. Further information on how to provide proof of vaccination will be provided closer to the show. Additionally, WSM will require that masks be worn at all times in interior spaces and in queuing lines. If the situation changes and a mask mandate can be relaxed, we hope to announce that closer to the show dates.

We should also address attendees who cannot comply with the protocols established. WSM, as a private company, reserves the right to prohibit access to the show should an invited attendee violate our Safe and Healthy Show Policy.

More information on Winter Sports Market: WSM is an invitation-only trade event hosted by specialty Ski & Snowboard retail shops along with manufacturers in the wintersports industry.
