The National Hydropower Association looks forward to the upcoming Clean Currents Conference and Tradeshow at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA on October 20-22, 2021.

NHA is committed to hosting the safest possible event for attendees and exhibitors in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and will follow all safety measures based on the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) as well as local government requirements and guidance.

As we get closer to October, NHA is putting the finishing touches on Clean Currents 2021. At the top of our list is ensuring the safest possible in-person event experience. To that end, the NHA team and the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta have initiated the following safety measures:

  • The city of Atlanta has issued an executive order requiring mask use in all public places while indoors. Clean Currents and the Georgia World Congress Center will follow this order to help protect our attendees. To comply with the current protocols, All attendees and exhibitors will be required to wear a mask while in the conference center – even if fully vaccinated. Upon arrival, all attendees will receive a complimentary NHA mask. Should these policies change, NHA will provide you with any updates.
  • Clean Currents will feature socially distanced room setups and will practice social distancing throughout our conference area.
  • The Georgia World Congress Center announced in June that it was the first convention center in the United States to achieve Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR facility accreditation. The more than 4 million-square-foot facility documented each step of its procedures for cleaning, disinfection, and infection prevention. This accreditation means that the GWCC has:
    • Established and maintained a cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention program to minimize risks associated with infectious agents like the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).
    • The proper cleaning protocols, disinfection techniques, and work practices in place to combat biohazards and infectious disease.
    • Highly informed cleaning professionals who are trained for outbreak and infectious disease preparation and response.
  • As additional procedures and updates arise, we will notify all attendees and prospective attendees.
