As many of you are aware, ACEN recently updated their vaccine and mask guidelines. Some of that update was unclear. What is clear is that attendee and staff health and safety always take priority for HIDIVE. We here at HIDIVE want all of you to know we are all in this together. If anyone does not feel safe coming to ACEN this year, we completely understand.

For those of you who still plan on attending, the staff members attending our booth WILL wear masks and observe social distancing guidelines. We will have masks on hand, and we will be happy to give you one as long as our supplies last. Please stop by Booth# IND03.

We are also having an internal discussion on how to handle convention-only giveaways for HIDIVE subscribers who have canceled, or plan to cancel, their ACEN attendance. Please stand by for further details.

Stay safe, and know that we are thinking of you.
