Cleveland Power of Sport Summit is committed to providing a welcoming, safe, and accessible environment for all attendees.


The Summit continues to be planned in accordance with best practices set forth by the Centers for Disease Control, the Ohio Department of Public Health and local public health entities. The health and safety of our attendees is the utmost priority and comprehensive COVID-19 protocols will be in place throughout the event.  Our planning team and partners are in close communication with local health officials and continue to be flexible and respond to changes that may be necessitated.

While at Cleveland Metropolitan Conference Center (CMCC), all guests must wear a facial covering at all times regardless of vaccination status, unless actively eating or drinking.  Before entering CMCC, anyone 5 years or older is required to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination (14 days past final vaccination shot) or proof of a negative test result (from either a PCR or molecular test collected up to two days prior to the day they attend, or a rapid antigen test collected on the day they attend). All individuals age 18 years or older must also show a valid government ID paired with their proof of vaccination or negative test. Accepted forms of proof of vaccination or negative test include, but are not limited to, a physical copy of a vaccination card, a photo, e-mail results, use of a verification app, or proof of a previous screening at another NBA All-Star event that has been verified through the Clear app. Proof of a negative test result must include a date and time stamp.

To speed up entry into the venue, guests may upload the required vaccination information and / or test results into the CLEAR app (or use the QR code below) to create a CLEAR Health Pass. They will then be given a CLEAR wristband that signifies that they meet the necessary health and safety requirements.
