Safety Promise


As you prepare to attend the 2021 Ocean City Resort Gift Expo, please know that we’ve made some updates to follow the guidelines issued by the CDC, state and local officials. Ensuring the safety of all exhibitors, attendees, and staff on-site is our top priority, so we’ve developed a full health and safety plan to do just that. Additionally, we are working with our travel partners, venues, and hotels to provide you with a safe and productive environment for you to conduct business.

The Clarion Gift & Souvenir team would like to give our full commitment to you that WE, the show management team, will be MASKed UP during all upcoming 2021 events. In addition, each show will be following guidelines given by the CDC and local authorities which will be communicated to you through show websites, emails, and onsite signage. We encourage all of our attendees and exhibitors to get vaccinated or tested prior to travel, as well as wear a mask for the continued safety of our beloved trade show Family, even if not locally mandated.
