Health and safety for SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing

SPIE is working closely with each event’s convention center facility, city travel bureaus, Freeman as the event set up contractor, and other show partners on health and safety measures. We are committed to safely accommodating all attendees by including sanitation stations throughout the event facility, as well as locations where you can find personal hand sanitizers and disposable masks for those who wish to wear one.

SPIE will continue to update this page as more information is available. If you have any questions, please contact
