Banquets & Parties

AVCA is committed to attendee safety and will follow all CDC, local, and venue guidelines at networking and social events throughout the convention. All banquets, parties, and receptions will utilize CDC and local social distancing requirements for room sets and chair placements. Currently those requirements are a maximum of 6 chairs per table round at the banquets. Table seating will be utilized at parties and receptions to maintain social distancing guidelines and adhere to room capacity limits. Attendees are strongly encouraged to wear masks, maintain social distancing, and use hand sanitizer when networking with each other. Food/Beverage service will consist of individually wrapped items, boxed meals, or plated meals. No buffet service, self-serve refill, or self-serve condiment stations will be offered.
