The covid19 pandemic has forced us to re-learn, re-invest and re-organize work so that the number of contacts between people is reduced, establishing rules to avoid and reduce the frequency and type of person-to-person contact
Also in the fairs and events sector, new protocols have been established to follow to guarantee the safe and orderly return to the activity of assembly companies.
It is difficult to foresee when it will be possible to celebrate large events and congresses, fairs, mass concerts or sporting events, but it is also difficult to know under what conditions. Below we discuss what these measures may be:
But attendees will not only experience this new way of parameterizing health status and attendance volume per square meter, but they will also learn about a new hybrid fair model, combining physical and digital event, with face-to-face and virtual meetings. Before the covid19, many exhibitions sold square meters, but what they have to sell today are contacts.
The drop in visitors and exhibitors has also forced organizers to merge several Events to optimize resources and take advantage of economies of scale in rooms that are expected to be much smaller.
A challenge that will contribute to the recovery of the sector of fair suppliers, but of the sectors that depend to a great extent on business tourism, such as hotels, restaurants, shops, transport and cultural and leisure activities.
At Expomedia, in addition to following the established and mentioned protocols, we also collaborate with the health prevention technology company SANOTEC, carrying out periodic temperature checks on our staff during the work of assembly and installation of stands.
