AHIA Fall 2022 Meeting

Louisville, KY

Louisville: Get a different taste

October 12-14, 2022

As anyone who comes here soon discovers, Louisville is one of the most uniquely authentic destinations on the planet. Welcome to Bourbon City®.

Yes, Bourbon is a spirit that comes in a glass, but it’s also a spirit that defines our culture and compassion, our arts and parks, our creative energy. It’s this kind of spirit that helped created Louisville itself - a city that combines heritage with innovation, authenticity with originality, quirkiness with friendliness in a way that’s completely unique to our region.

We’re an entirely different type of Southern. From boundary-pushing twists on Southern cuisine that have made us one of the “10 Best New Food Cities” in America to our one and only Urban Bourbon Experience™, featuring the world’s only, city-wide trail filled with award-winning micro-distilleries, exhibits, and craft cocktail destinations celebrating America’s only native spirit. And speaking of ONLY…you’ll want to see the home of the Kentucky Derby at legendary Churchill Downs, the iconic Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory, and the Muhammad Ali Center in the Greatest’s hometown. And that’s just your first day here.

Kentucky Public Health Department:

As CDC transitions to the new “COVID-19 Community Level” model that uses the number of new COVID-19 cases in each county, percent of hospital capacity devoted to COVID-19 patients and the number of new patients with COVID-19 admitted to the hospital in the past week, KDPH will be using this tool to help Kentuckians be informed of the COVID-19 impact in their communities. KDPH created the Community Level COVID-19 Guidance to align with the new community level model. 

As of August 1, 2022, Louisville, KY resides within a county where the Community Level is listed as HIGH.

Recommendations for COVID-19 prevention measures in HIGH Level Communities:

With these recommendations in mind, all AHIA attendees, as well as any visitors to meeting rooms and social events, are required to provide proof of vaccination to enter the AHIA venues. Well-fitting masks are strongly encouraged for all indoor activities.  Additionally, restaurants, attractions, and other tourism-related businesses may have implemented additional safety guidelines for guests, including requiring proof of vaccination.

Reasonable Accommodations:  In the event that vaccination is not possible for an individual, they may still register for the AHIA meeting as a Virtual Attendee.  Virtual attendees will have access to Educational Sessions on-demand for a period of 7 days after the close of the meeting.  Unvaccinated individuals will not be permitted to attend in-person events.
