COVID-19 Guidance

AUGS Commitment to Safety 

AUGS is committed to hosting a robust in-person PFD Week 2021, October 12-15 in Phoenix, AZ. We consider the safety of all attendees, our industry partners and AUGS staff as a top priority. AUGS is working with the Arizona Grand Resort and Spa to enact procedures in alignment with this commitment. 

We ask that our attendees, industry partners and staff also act in the best interest of our AUGS community by following our onsite safety procedures, as detailed below. We ask you do not attend the event if you are ill or have been recently exposed or experience symptoms of COVID-19.

AUGS will continue to monitor updates and guidance recommendations from the CDC and the State of Arizona and will communicate any updates as the situation evolves.
