Entry requirements for the ABCT 56 Annual Convention

ABCT is committed to putting on a safe event

As part of the entry requirements for the ABCT 56 Annual Convention, all attendees must provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination in order to enter.

  • ABCT has partnered with CLEAR to utilize the Health Pass feature, to provide easy proof of COVID-related health insights for faster entry. To get started, download the CLEAR app and enroll for free: https://clear.app.link/ABCT56
  • For the most efficient entry possible, all attendees should create a free CLEAR account and complete the checklist for entry requirements.
  • Trust and transparency are CLEAR’s top priority, and with Health Pass, users are always in control of their health information. Personal information is only used to deliver a frictionless and secure experience with CLEAR and You can read more details about this in CLEAR’s Privacy Policy here.
    • If you have any questions about enrolling in CLEAR, please reach out to [email protected] or tap “Get In Touch” in the app for assistance.
  • Need further assistance with Health Pass? Contact CLEAR’s Member Care team directly in the CLEAR app, by calling 1-855-CLEARME (253-2763), or through email at [email protected]

For those attendees who prefer not to use the Clear App due to privacy issues, please bring valid photo identification and proof of vaccination with you to the convention.

There will be a staffed check-in desk on the fifth floor of the Marriott Marquis. Please visit this desk before going to collect your badge and registration materials.

Clear Health Pass can verify internationally issued vaccines for the following QR code standards:

EU Digital Covid Certification (DCC) and UK National Health Service (NHS) Covid Pass.

Users within the U.S. will need to download the free CLEAR app or upgrade to version 1.49.0 (both for iOS and Android) in order to select the Digital Vaccine Card and scan their DCC or NHS QR code.

Similar to EU residents, Canadian users can verify vaccination status by linking their SmartQR Code provided by their healthcare provider upon vaccination. Users within the U.S. will need to download the free CLEAR app or upgrade to version 1.49.0 (both for iOS and Android).
