Industry Characteristics and Risk Assessment
Prior to the event, the organizer should evaluate whether the staff and participants are at high risk. Those over 65 years old or suffering from a serious underlying disease, those who have been sick or infected with a severe infectious disease in the past seven days, and those who have had close contact with someone who is sick or showing symptoms are suggested to stay at home. In addition, staff are asked to strengthen protection and increase risk awareness when working with high-risk participants such as professionals in the medical industry. For example, if only masks are required throughout the event, medical gloves or other protective measures are recommended to strengthen protection. Participants are also reminded of the risks and urged to take extra protective measures that they deem appropriate.
Safety and Health Measures at the Venue
Masks are required for staff at the registration desk at all times. Epidemic prevention supplies should be made available at the desk, including masks and disinfectants. All printed documents (such as handouts, promotional materials, and questionnaires) should be placed on the counter rather than be hand distributed by staff to participants.
Indicating Safe Distances with Marks for Queues
To help maintain social distancing while participants queue to register, the organizer should plan a route and place marks on the floor to indicate appropriate distance. The staff should assist and guide all participants to maintain social distancing.
Exhibition Organizer Should Monitor On-site Traffic and Direct Visitors to Enter at Different Times Whenever Necessary
It is suggested to extend the opening time to disperse traffic on the first day of the exhibition when more visitors are expected to come.
Implement regular public announcements to promote epidemic prevention measures or increase the number of staff in the venue for patrols.
Schedules and Risk Assessment
The organizer can assign registration time slots for participants as a means for crowd control. For example, the online registration letter can indicate different arrival times to prevent large numbers of participants arriving at the same time.
Signs can be placed on the floor of elevators and escalators for social distancing purposes.
Corridors, stairs, elevators, and escalators should have clearly marked pedestrian routes that take social distancing into consideration, and the number of people allowed to use the elevators and escalators be limited. Participants are encouraged to take escalators.
A.Booth design and display should allow visitors to maintain social distancing.
B.Reduce physical contact with electronic business cards.
Maintain social distancing:
