NCBJ’s top priority is everyone’s health and safety. NCBJ stays up-to-date with CDC, local guidelines and Marriott’s Commitment to Clean for in-person meeting best practices. Marriott has elevated its rigorous standards and protocols to create a “new normal” in hospitality. NCBJ believes that a successful in-person, socially distanced event, with attention to enhanced sanitizing, disinfection, modified food handling practices and more contactless features is possible in Indianapolis. Marriott staff wear masks and NCBJ is monitoring mask guidance for indoor large events and may require masks indoors. Health and safety of staff and guests guides our evolving practices.
