Currently, proof of vaccination will not be required to receive a badge or attend the National Bridal Market Chicago scheduled for March 13-15, according to a recent announcement from Market organizers. 

Though the city of Chicago’s COVID-19 mandates may change before the show in March, current city-wide requirements include:

  • All restaurants in Chicago will require proof of vaccination and an ID in order to be seated (carryout is available without vaccination);

  • Complimentary lunch for buyers and concessions will be available for consumption only in the show Café and only for those showing proof of vaccination along with photo ID;
  • Appropriate masks or face coverings must be worn at all times while indoors, regardless of vaccination status.
