G3 Partners update Good Practice Guide

Gwen Kaufmann - Wednesday, September 16, 2020    


An increasing number of markets around the world have begun to reopen business events with varying COVID-19 protocols in place. While some cities in China are now operating full calendars, increasing number of exhibitions and live events are taking place in Europe, the Middle East and North and South America. Despite the necessity to shift to digital only events in recent months, numerous studies have shown that companies are eager to return to meeting face-to-face at live events as their preferred marketing channel to reconnect with customers and suppliers and rebuild their businesses following the pandemic. As confidence will remain a key issue, reassuring customers and visitors that business events can be operated in a controlled environment which adheres to local regulations and policies, is of great importance. To support this, the G3 partners have published the “Good Practice Guide: Addressing COVID-19 Requirements for Re-Opening Business Events – Version 2” produced jointly by AIPC, the International Association of Convention Centres, ICCA, the International Convention and Congress Association and UFI, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry. The Guide builds on the first report published in May and includes 12 mini case-studies and learnings from events which successfully too place during July and August 2020 around the world.
