With the return of the Chicago Build Expo, the safety and health of all of our attendees & participants is our number one priority. Please see all the measures below that we will be following to ensure everyone’s safety regarding the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Face Coverings:
In line with the Order of the Commissioner of Health of the City of Chicago, all participants at Chicago Build, regardless of vaccination status, MUST wear a face covering while inside the exhibition hall (or any public place), unless medically exempt (you will be required to provide proof of medical exemption). You can read the full order online.

While we strongly encourage our guests to be vaccinated or take a Lateral Flow Test prior to travel on the day of the event, we are not requiring proof of these at this time and we only ask that you wear a face covering at all times (unless medically exempt, eating or drinking).

If you have a temperature, are showing any potential symptoms of COVID-19, have tested positive for COVID-19, or have been in close contact with anyone that has tested positive for COVID-19 within 14 days of the event then you need to stay home.
