Green pass and safe business protocol

Coronavirus: preventive measures taken for trade fairs and events in protected and safe settings

Today, just as before the pandemic, the objective of event organizers is always the same: ensure operators and visitors a useful and rewarding experience set in an environment with the highest safety standards.

On 15 June 2021, the Italian government gave the green light to shows and events attended in person. And Veronafiere was the first exhibition centre in Italy to inaugurate the restart by welcoming visitors and exhibitors to Motor Bike Expo on 18 June.

On 23 July, the Council of Ministers extended the obligatory Green pass also for access to trade fairs.

This is a further preventive measure against COVID-19 alongside to those already implemented by Veronafiere with its specific safe business protocol, validated by the Technical Scientific Committee of the Civil Protection Service, national health authorities and AEFI, the reference association for Italian trade fairs.

The protocol envisages for three fundamental rules to be respected on an individual scale:

  • maintain social distancing of at least one metre from other people;
  • always wear a face mask
  • sanitize your hands frequently.

Veronafiere takes care of everything else.

The entire exhibition centre and all activities hosted in its facilities have been redesigned in the light of these safety measures.

Starting with methods of access: digital tickets on smartphones purchased on-line for a specific date and body temperature measurements with body temperature scanners at the turnstiles.

The daily capacity for events is calculated in relation to the parameters defined by the World Health Organization. one person every 4 square metres.

And thanks to an area of more than 300,000 sq.m. (equal to 42 football pitches), meetings and business at Veronafiere couldn’t be easier while upholding social distancing at all times.

In this regard, further assurances are provided by an intelligent network of 400 cameras  capable of identifying any gatherings in real time and monitoring correct use of masks, thanks to advanced computer vision software.

On entering the exhibition centre, an app guides visitors around the stands, indicating differential Hall entry and exit routes, which are also highlighted by specific coloured sign-posting  on the ground.

The keyword in all shared areas is hygiene: in addition to water-alcohol gel dispensers to disinfect hands, disinfection activities for all premises and air conditioning systems involving specialist cleaning teams have also been upgraded.

These procedures have received GBAC STARTM certification from the Global Biorisk Advisory Council which today is the most advanced international standard in terms of cleaning, disinfection and prevention of infectious diseases.

Specific rules will also be applied to conference facilities (with reduced capacity and spacing of seats) and catering.

Safety will also be served at table during events, with new criteria for serving food and drinks and the launch of the food delivery app for booking stand catering services.

Inasmuch, every event will have a medical unit managed by the Croce Blu  ambulance service with a rapid swab point, where operators, exhibitors and fitters can have antigen tests at an agreed discounted price.

A team of doctors and nurses is on hand to intervene in an emergency, with a specific protocol and an isolation room to manage suspected cases of Covid19 thanks to the support of the Sacro Cuore Don Calabria Hospital, a state of the art facility in the field of rare and infectious diseases.
