ABA Press Releases

A Message from ABA President Peter Pantuso Regarding Marketplace Safety


Dear ABA Members and Colleagues,

I am looking forward to seeing everyone in Grapevine in a few days.

I have heard from many of you over the past few weeks and I’m hearing a lot of excitement about getting back to business and that Marketplace will be a kickoff of the 2022 and 2023 planning cycle for many of our members.

At the same time, I understand there has also been some anxiety over the surge in the Omicron virus around the country.

ABA wants to assure you that your safety and health is our number one priority. Because of that, we have put into place a number of protocols to help keep our attendees as safe as possible while we get our industry up and running again.

I want to remind you that we will not allow anyone to enter Marketplace who hasn't either produced a vaccine card in advance of arrival or provided a negative COVID test within 72 hours prior to arriving. There are two easy ways to verify your vaccination or your test prior to arrival: text “Hi” to 877-398-1065 or scan the QR code here.

We will have rapid testing available to all attendees onsite. The cost for the onsite tests are: PCR test is $95 and the rapid test is $40.

We are requiring all attendees to wear masks while indoors at all times except when actively eating and drinking.

We ask that any attendee who is feeling under the weather to not come to Marketplace and send someone else in their place.

You can read more of our health and safety protocols here.

We look forward to seeing you at Marketplace and getting our industry up and running again so we can see more recovery in 2022 and beyond.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me at any time.
