The widely anticipated 2021 ISRI Commodity Roundtables Forum is still scheduled to take place Sept 22-24 in Chicago as planned! This year is on pace to be one of the largest roundtable events we’ve had in recent years. 

As you prepare to join us in Chicago, we wanted to make sure you know the city’s Department of Public Health now requires that everyone age two and up wear a mask in public indoor settings, regardless of vaccination status. Masking remains optional in outdoor settings, where the risk of COVID-19 transmission is lower. ISRI recommends that all attendees be vaccinated. We will have masks available onsite for those who need them. We will continue to follow local health and safety protocols, and will share updates as needed.


Stay up-to-date on all ISRI Commodity Roundtables Forum happenings with the ISRI Connect app, and social media.
