Our top priority is creating a safe and worry-free education experience for you. Along with our event partners at The Diplomat Beach Resort; we are preparing for the Ascend 2021 experience so that all attendees, speakers and exhibitors enjoy a healthy, immersive learning event.

Venue and Accommodations

  • OATUG and OHUG will facilitate measures to promote health and safety in all spaces where in-person interaction takes place. In keeping with the latest CDC recommendations on masks, we are asking attendees to wear masks indoors.
  • We will facilitate social distancing, with extra space between chairs in education rooms. The Diplomat is spacious with plenty of room to spread out, and we also have a large number of concurrent sessions, so we’re not expecting the meeting rooms to be full. There will also be the option to view sessions remotely if any attendee is uncomfortable with the number of people in any given session.
  • Evening events will be hosted outdoors.
  • Meals will be served by attendants or prepackaged.
  • Hand sanitizer will be readily available throughout the event.

Our host venue is following safety and sanitation protocols to ensure your comfort and confidence in joining us. The Diplomat offers the following protocols for your safety:

  • Contactless & streamlined check in
  • Deep-cleaned guestrooms
  • Common area sanitizing stations & protocols
  • CleanStay validated & sealed event rooms
  • Seating throughout the hotel is arranged to accommodate social distancing
