Attendees of Akron-Canton CSI's PRODUCTFEST 2021 will have the opportunity to participate in over five hours of AIA certified educational seminars following a theme of Universal Design. Our keynote presentation "ADA Design Mistakes, Required Standards and How to Avoid the Dreaded Lawsuit?" will discuss common ADA violations, what the future holds for increased accessibility and provide case studies. In addition to our educational seminars, attendees are encouraged to participate in our trade show, with show hours to meet your schedule, with lunch provided.
Due to the postponement of ProductFest last year, we are so excited to have a show this year and welcome everyone back! With vendor, sponsor, and attendee safety in mind, ProductFest 2021 will be held on the fourth and fifth levels of the Opportunity Parking Deck in downtown Akron (666 Broadway St., Akron, OH 44311). We feel the unique location of the show in a parking deck provides you with the ability to have face-to-face interaction with people in a safe environment. To maintain that safe environment for everyone, we have provided adequate ventilation by being outdoors and increased space between vendors and those in educational seminars. Multiple hand sanitizing, hand washing stations, and restrooms will be available for attendees. All attendees must also comply with social distancing requirements, wear masks at all times (unless actively eating or drinking), and complete Akron-Canton CSI's COVID-19 Waiver before the program, and stay home if they have a fever, cough, or other signs of possible COVID-19. We hope these precautions create a sense of safety for everyone and will encourage people to attend. No virtual option will be available.
