Gwen Kaufmann - Wednesday, May 20, 2020    

Italian Exhibition Group IEG has initiated the project #SAFEBUSINESS that focuses on every phase in the trade show and conference experience. "We have worked on this plan," says Corrado Peraboni, CEO of IEG, "with the aim of providing a complete and reliable answer for our customers and the international public which, now more than ever, is asking us to be able to count on trade shows and conferences restarting. We have done so in line with the anti-COVID-19 health regulations and documents drafted by AEFI, FEDERCONGRESSI, UFI and EMECA, which I would like to thank for their constant presence regarding the question concerned". The project provides over fifty guidelines with a rigorous regulatory and organisational protocol upstream. These include: sanitised shuttle transport between the airport, hotels and expo centres, all equipped with disinfectant, the obligation to wear face masks onboard and a fixed number of passengers; conventions regarding bike sharing and electric scooter companies in accordance with hotels and the territory; ticket office and payments exclusively online, scheduled entries according to hall capacity and extended trade show opening times, face mask distribution desks (with mandatory use and specific aids for those with special needs, such as transparent face masks for IEG staff to facilitate relations with the hearing impaired); multiple entrances, safety aisles and distancing signage, dematerialised entry tickets, temperature checks on the public using thermo scanners and a sanitisation route, wardrobe with automatic rack and disposable individual coverings.
