Your safety, well-being, and event experience has always been the top priority of the IDN Summit & Reverse Expo. Never has that duty to serve been clearer than it is now. The enhancements to the IDN Summit employ stringent cleaning and safety practices to support the health and wellness of all attendees.

As we look forward to the 2020 Fall IDN Summit, we continue to monitor the COVID-19 outbreak and ensure the best public health practices are being exercised. As new information and guidance becomes available, we will adapt quickly and appropriately, keeping your safety and comfort top-of-mind.
