We are planning to hold Kinetic 2021 in person, however, the safety and health of our attendees are our top priority. We will continually monitor developments related to COVID-19, as well as local and national guidelines to ensure the health of the public. If needed, we will pivot to a virtual format. Below are a few precautions we plan to implement based on the most recent information (July 1, 2021) and will be updated as guidelines change.

  • Hand sanitizer throughout the building
  • Sanitizing high-traffic areas
  • Masks encouraged
  • Social distancing
  • Working with the Marion County Public Health Department on a COVID Risk Mitigation Plan
  • Capped attendance (occupying less than 75% of venue capacity)

Additionally, we encourage attendees who are eligible to get vaccinated to do so. Weather-permitting, guests may be able to attend content sessions outdoors on the Biltwell decks.


If you are staying overnight for the Kinetic Conference on August 12, we have chosen to stay with the Hyatt Place Indianapolis / Downtown. Interested in securing your hotel room at a discounted rate? Please email to ask for information on our hotel block. Reservations must be made before July 19 for the discount.
