For those who prefer to attend virtually from home or office, 150 virtual passes are available. Whether online or in-person, with our interactive virtual platform you will be able to network on Zoom, participate in all of the live events, receive conference promotional swag, and of course, be included in drawings and contests for prizes. Virtual delegates will also have their own emcee to guide them through the day's sessions and networking activities.

FAQ'S

SAFETYCOVID-19 Safety Precautions

At CX Forums Executive Summits, our priority is the best possible experience for our attendees.  That includes an optimal networking environment limited to 150 attendees in person and 150 online delegates (see Dunbar’s number below) and of course, your health and safety.

City Winery Safety Guidelines

CX Forums Executive Summits have been designed from the ground up by CX Leaders and event professionals with decades of experience and we’re here to address all of your COVID-19 related safety concerns.  We are monitoring local market conditions and regulations to ensure a safe event for our attendees. Temperature checks will be required upon entry, and masks are encouraged but not required if fully vaccinated. CITY WINERY BOSTON is COVID compliant in all of their operations. Please read further and don’t hesitate to ASK US a question or address a concern.

From City Winery: July 29, 2021

In these very challenging times of reopening, we are carefully balancing the safety of our customers, staff and performing artists with the issues of privacy and freedom which we in our democracy cherish. Our number one mission is to create a safe, comfortable, and ideal setting for our dining guests, our artists and those attending live performances of music, comedy, or any art on our stage. We care about the lighting, the air-conditioning, the sightlines, the exits for egress, the fire suppression systems, the quality of the food, the service; everything that goes into making the customer experience as magical as possible. We want people to feel comfortable.
At this stage in the pandemic, with the Delta variant on the rise, the remarkable roll-out of vaccines, and the overwhelming numbers of our customers now fully inoculated against COVID-19, we can create an environment that is as safe as possible moving forward. Our recent July survey indicated that more than 75% of our patrons are already vaccinated. This is very good news.
Given this, our decision to move forward with creating an environment where we request that all patrons are vaccinated, and wear masks when moving indoors, will allow even more psychological comfort that our facility is as safe a place to be as possible. Of course, we respect that if a person does not want to get vaccinated for any reason, be it religious, health or other, they can get tested showing a negative result within 72 hours to gain admission. All guests are welcome on our outdoor patios, however masks will be required when entering the building.

If you’re still not comfortable attending an in-person Executive Summit this year, all of our events are HYBRID – meaning you have the option to experience the Executive Summit virtually in real time. (Click here to view our In-Person and Virtual packages).

We encourage all participants attending CX Forums Executive Summits to be fully vaccinated.  Mask/facial coverings are also encouraged.  Temperature checks will be required at the door.

~ If You Are Sick: If you have a temperature, are showing any potential symptoms of COVID-19, have tested positive for COVID-19, or have been in close contact with anyone that has tested positive for COVID-19 within 14 days of the event then you need to stay home and request a refund, and you can still join us online.

Potential COVID-19 symptoms include:

• Fever or chills
• Cough
• Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
• Fatigue

• Muscle or body aches
• Headache
• New loss of taste or smell
• Sore throat

• Congestion or runny nose
• Nausea or vomiting
• Diarrhea

~ Masks: Currently, none of our cities nor venues are requiring masks.  However, as we know, nothing is normal with COVID-19.  If there is a mask mandate put back in place in the city or venue where the event is taking place, masks will be required at our Executive Summit. If there is no mask mandate in city or venue the event is taking place, then wearing a mask becomes personal choice for each of us.

~ Hand sanitizer: stations will be available throughout the event. Touchless hand sanitizer stations will be available at most venues.

~ Food and Beverage: All of our venues are following CDC guidelines to ensure your safety all day, including food and beverage protocols (i.e. gourmet boxed lunches, no buffet style food).  Please remember to sanitize throughout the day, including before and after consuming food and beverages

~ Distance Preferences: We want to respect everyone’s choices about physical distance/touching.  There will be optional stickers for your badges – a red sticker means you prefer 6-feet distance.  A green sticker means you’re open to handshakes, etc.  Please respect each other and follow our CODE OF CONDUCT (under FAQ's)

~ Capacity and Seating: We are limiting all in-person events to 150 attendees… and this is not just because of COVID Safety measures. 

Have you heard of Dunbar's number a.k.a. The Rule of 150? British anthropologist Robin Dunbar suggested 150 is the "magic number" of individuals for networking and maintaining relationships. For this reason, CX Forums Executive Summits are limited to 150 delegates. With 50 passes reserved for speakers, sponsors, staff and advisory board members, only 100 in-person passes are available for purchase.  

We will have seating options 6-feet apart for anyone still wishing to observe this prior CDC guideline.  City Winery Boston’s normal capacity is 250 for the theater and 800 in reception, so there is plenty of extra space at the Executive Summit.
In-Person Delegates will have a choice for letting others know their distancing preference.
+ Choose a RED sticker on your badge, you will signal others that you prefer distancing.
+ Choose a GREEN sticker, you let others know you are open to shaking hands and closer contact.

Please Contact Us with any questions or concerns!

MEALSContinental breakfast, boxed lunches and full day snacks and refreshments will be served. Be sure to stay for the Happy Hour Reception following the program from 3:30 until 5:30. Virtual attendees will also have an engaging interactive happy hour reception online.
