Safety Protocols

A Safe, Effective, and Successful PDMI West

PDMI West is committed to a safe return to reconnecting with the industry in person, Oct. 4-6 at Hard Rock Hotel San Diego.

As part of that, we're happy to share that the vaccination rate in San Diego County — which leads all of California — continues to soar: to date, nearly 87 percent of residents age 12 and up have received at least one shot, while more than 76 percent are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. At the same time, the summer's rise in cases is waning — as of Sept. 15, the seven-day average of new cases in San Diego County is down 46 percent from its Aug. 14 high.

Even with that good news, the PDMI and Hard Rock Hotel San Diego remain focused on creating a safe networking environment (click here to access the hotel's Safe+Sound program).


All PDMI West attendees are required to wear a mask while in the three indoor areas of Hard Rock Hotel San Diego that are part of PDMI West: the registration area, the meeting hall, and the educational theater. In the meeting hall only, you may remove your mask if you are actively eating food or drinking a beverage. Your mask must be replaced once you are finished.  


In addition, all PDMI West attendees are strongly urged to wear a mask in all interior areas of Hard Rock Hotel San Diego. The PDMI will provide masks for all attendees in our show bags, as well as at stations near the meeting hall and education theater, and the entrance to each networking event.


Beyond these protocols, the event will follow the hotel’s, as well as all local and state regulations on masking, distancing, and vaccination that are in place at the time of the event (click here for the City of San Diego website and here for the San Diego County website for regular updates). The two evening networking events are both scheduled to be completely outdoors and masking rules for these events will mirror local regulations for outdoor interaction.


We look forward to hosting you at PDMI West in San Diego. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to drop us a line.
