After a review of health and safety protocols for attendees, speakers, and staff, and in concert with Hilton executives and in compliance with the latest CDC /California CV-19 guidelines, WC2 is pleased to confirm this boutique event may be presented live.

Message from the President of Hilton

AGLAWC will be the only event on the entire ballroom floor, utilizing extraordinary safe-distancing and sanitary protocols for all workshops, panels, and the keynote luncheon. You will be attending the first HYBRID-Writers Conference of its kind, as we will also present a virtual track of panels and workshops in a webinar format on a big screen in one of the breakout rooms. All panels and workshops will provide time for Q&A.

Also, the hotel wing has been remodeled with a new air-conditioning system and other health safeguards/improvements. Attendees will be able to self-park their vehicles.

Additional protocols will be announced on this page. Check back often.


Will the event observe social distancing?

Yes, we will spread out over the entire floor of the conference, including all breakout rooms, main ballrooms, and hallways. Tables with chairs will be six feet apart. Breakout rooms will have attendance limits. Certain areas of the event will utilize clear safety shields, such as the Registration and One-on-One desks.

We will accept debit or credit cards for additional purchases by no-contact payment. No cash payments requiring change.

Will all participants be required to wear masks?

Yes. Attendees, hotel and conference staff will wear masks at all times. Except in the first floor restaurant and keynote lunch when eating.

How about the keynote lunch?

The lunch will be a fully-plated meal delivered with a room service cover, to your individual table. All utensils will be pre-wrapped, all condiments separately packaged.

How about water stations?

All water and beverages will be served via a sealed delivery service or bottle.

How do attendees receive credentials?

Registration badges and programs will be available via a no-contact delivery system. Golds Members may be sent items wag in advance. There will be no sharing programs or any items by physical contact.

Every attendee will receive an individual reusable swag bag with badges, programs, masks, gloves. Each swag bag will have pens to use. Do not share anything with another person.
