At DSI, we pride ourselves on bringing together senior government and industry leaders to support US national security interests. We believe in the importance of meeting with your colleagues, partners, and customers in person, the way virtual type calls can never fully capture. However, the health and safety of event participants, speakers, exhibitors, and staff remain DSI’s top priority. At every one of our events, you can expect a professional experience that follows all current health guidelines in relation to COVID-19.

DSI forums are not large trade shows. Our summits and symposiums are small & focused educational meetings. Currently, the following protocols will be followed at all DSI events taking place in-person. 

Policy Updated: August 10, 2021 to reflect most recent DoD and CDC guidance.




Physical Distancing: We request participants practice physical distancing at DSI events. We are excited to see you, but give everyone some space. DSI will also make efforts to allow for extra space depending on the venue.


Mask Wearing: Per CDC guidance on July 27, 2021 & DoD guidance dated July 28, 2021 – All attendees and staff will be required to wear a mask during the duration of the event regardless of vaccination status. 



Enhanced Cleaning: We will provide extra hand sanitizer along with other disinfectants and hand wash reminders.



Individually Served Food: Pre-packaged, single-serving options will be available for lunch and refreshments for those who prefer. 



Temperature Check: Infrared thermometers may be used to check guest’s temperatures.
