MGM Resorts Bringing Back Conventions

MGM Resorts International is expanding its Convene With Confidence program, a health and safety plan that aims to reintroduce meetings and conventions to their properties.

Using the Health Pass mobile app — created by biometric identity company Clear — attendees are screened through health surveys and health insights like Covid-19 test results, temperature checks, and vaccine validation.

This is huge for Las Vegas, convention centers, the International Association of Venue Managers (IAVM), and hospitality in general. Hotels, restaurants, convention centers, and other venues now have multiple options as they move forward through the recovery, towards growth in 2021 and beyond.

The Convene With Confidence program is scaling on-site COVID-19 rapid testing and in-room testing options to meet the needs of all sizes of events.

Five Diamond Screening, the only background screening company that focuses solely on hospitality and leisure, is a partner in this success every single day.
