A Letter from the Salt Palace Convention Center:

It is with great enthusiasm, and a focused view on safety that we prepare to welcome you back into our facility. On July 01, 2020 the Salt Palace Convention Center is preparing to open (subject to change at the direction of Salt Lake County) its doors to the public. Our hope is to provide all attendees and events with information and guidance that will help move us forward into the new normal of operation. As you may know the State of Utah is operating under a color coded risk level system as their approach to reopening. Under the guidance of the State and Salt Lake County we have devised a plan for operation based on the “Yellow” and “Orange” risk levels of this plan. This plan is to be utilized and followed while our facility remains within these risk levels, and are not to be utilized under the “Green” or “Red” risk levels also associated with this system. The “Green” risk level allows us to operate at a level of lower to no restriction, while the “Red” risk level prohibits operations and constitutes a facility closure. We are now ready and prepared to present these new operating guidelines and procedures and bring our facility back to life. Linked above you will find the “Covid-19 Yellow/Orange Risk Operating Guidelines & Procedures” document for your reference. Please note that additional information regarding the State of Utah’s risk level system, and its effects on the operations of our facility are included within the document. We understand each event has unique challenges, and working together we promise to execute as many safety measures as needed to provide a safe facility for all. 

 We are beyond excited to welcome you into our facility, and begin preparations that will provide a safe environment for your attendees, staff, and all those working within the Salt Palace Convention Center. In addition to a highly rigorous cleaning and disinfection regimen, The Salt Palace Convention Center is currently pursuing an expansive accreditation from The Global Biorisk Advisory Council, a certification that we hope will bring a greater sense of safety and security to events and their attendees. 

We are counting down the days until we can say “Welcome to the Salt Palace Convention Center” once more.
