The Covid-19 pandemic will change the worldwide exhibition industry beyond recognition,
adding new dimensions to our organized events and demanding an even more comprehensive response.
Trade exhibitions are, as we know, a far cry from ‘mass gathering’ events.
They are well ordered market places for conducting business and commerce
where we are able to affect conditions, settings and situations.
Health and safety is at the forefront of all our planning. Responding effectively to Covid-19 is a shared responsibility. Our guidelines reflect the essential role that the Exhibitions and Events industry must play to help protect the health and safety of our customers and employees.
But no industry can overcome this challenge alone.
Our staff, attendees, suppliers, venues and partners also have a responsibility. They must adopt new practices and follow science-based guidelines not only to protect their health and their family’s health, but to safeguard the health of others.
By working together, we can overcome the challenge, begin to reopen our economies and get businesses growing again.
