COVID-19 Updates

We are all eager to get back to business and network with colleagues, friends, and business partners. We at HOLA/Latin America and CHRIS/Caribbean plan to help jump-start our industry’s recovery with in-person conferences from August 30-September 2, 2021 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino near Hollywood, Florida and we are committed to doing it in the safest and most effective way for everyone.

Thank you for your interest in CHRIS and HOLA. We’re looking forward to seeing you in Florida.


As of August 15, 2021, CHRIS and HOLA will be implementing the following Safety and Health protocols and processes:
Wear a Facial Covering—Regardless of Vaccination Status
We are following current CDC guidelines, which state that masks should be worn indoors regardless of vaccination status, except when eating or drinking. We will have additional masks available should you need an extra or if you misplace your own. We strongly recommend, and kindly ask, that you wear a mask while indoors.
Optional “I have been Vaccinated” stickers will be available for those who are fully vaccinated if they wish to share the information with other attendees.
Wash Your Hands
Yes, we have all been hearing this one since our childhood, but please, wash your hands and make use of the available hand sanitizer regularly.
Stay Put if You’re Feeling Sick
Please stay home if you are feeling unwell or stay in your hotel room should you experience any symptoms after your arrival in the Miami area. If you are feeling sick and staying at the host hotel, immediately notify the hotel from your in-room phone and do not come to the conference area. The hotel will notify the CHRIS and/or HOLA staff immediately for you. If you are a transient attendee, please alert registration and we will make arrangements for your departure.
Keep Your Distance
Different delegates have different comfort zones. Please keep this in mind as your meeting and mingling throughout the conference.


Comprehensive health and sanitization operating procedures have been implemented for every area of the hotel.

Some highlights include:

• It is strongly recommended that masks be worn for all indoor functions, regardless of vaccination status.

• Hand sanitizers are located throughout the property and meeting space.

• Peroxide solutions used for cleaning throughout the property. Rooms are sanitized using peroxide solutions.
