Currently, the events team and FAAR staff are keeping a close eye on all safety procedures, guidelines, and precautions in regards to COVID-19. To that end, Expo may look a little different this year.
- Booths may be further apart than usual
- Seating in the classroom may be socially distanced
- Meals will be boxed instead of an open buffet
- Masks may be required
- Current COVID procedures mandated by the state will be followed
At this time, we are excited to be bringing back the FAAR Expo in 2021. We are working to bring you a safe, educational, and fun event! If for any reason it is not safe to hold the expo in September, we will work with sponsors, speakers, and the expo center to move the event to the spring of 2022.
