Travel, Health, and Safety ProtocolsYour safety and wellbeing are Best Western’s top priority. Accordingly, we are making every effort to protect your health, wellbeing, and peace of mind at the 2022 Annual Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. As an industry leader, we will conduct a safe event while still enabling all attendees to benefit from the event while interacting with fellow members, exhibitors, sponsors, guest speakers, and Best Western corporate staff and participating in the valuable sessions.
Please understand these protocols may change as Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, local laws and ordinances evolve. We will keep you apprised of any changes. The below is a list of the current processes we will follow to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all our attendees.
Presently the City of Cleveland has no official COVID protocols or restrictions in place.
Though not a requirement to attend, attendees are strongly encouraged to be up to date on their COVID-19 vaccination in accordance with guidance from the CDC. Individuals are considered up to date on their COVID 19 vaccination when they have received all doses in the primary series and boosters when eligible.
In addition, please follow the below protocols:
- Monitor your health daily – be alert for COVID-19 symptoms (e.g., fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19).
- Stay home when sick.
- Do not travel to the Convention if you have:
- have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19; or

If you are not feeling well, have COVID-19 symptoms or have a fever, you may not participate in that day’s events, and should not attend the remainder of the Annual Convention.
