Published on : Thursday, June 11, 2020
Feria Valencia makes venue safety a priority in the wake of COVID-19. They have implemented a Security Protocol and turned the venue into a safe space in front of the Covid-19. Safe health, safe life is the mantra of the moment. And adhering to the WHO guidelines they have implemented security measures such as temperature checks, hand sanitiser stations, wider aisles and bigger stands will facilitate social distancing whilst as many halls as necessary to enable exhibitors and visitors to adjust to the new regulations will be opened.
Feria Valencia is set to digitalise all communication with visitors and exhibitors and eliminate paper altogether. It will also be introducing a system for disinfecting all large surfaces, together with ventilation and air renewal systems. Feria Valencia is introducing a strict Safety Protocol that includes all the health, hygiene and safety measures and systems that will be implemented for all upcoming fairs, events and congresses. The Protocol is in line with the regulatory framework introduced by the WHO and the Spanish Government and also reflects the work undertaken jointly by the Asociación de Ferias Españolas (AFE, Spanish Trade Fairs Association) and the UFI, The Global Association of the Exhibition Industry). The aim is to ensure that Feria Valencia is a space that provides workers, suppliers, exhibitors and visitors with full protection from Covid-19.
On a general level, Feria Valencia will be implementing enhanced disinfection of all surfaces that are touched continually as part of an ongoing general cleaning process throughout the venue. It has also installed an air renewal system that works through the ventilation systems and will also be introducing a range of specific systems designed to disinfect large spaces.
Upon arrival at the venue, visitors will be required to have their temperature checked and face masks and hand sanitizer will be available at each of the entrances. In addition, queues at the entrances will be eliminated by making the spaces and entrances bigger, whilst delivering the obligatory facility for social distancing.
Inside the halls, the exhibition areas will be arranged so as to lower the density of stands and numbers of visitors and the aisles will be widened sufficiently to reduce visitor density. Feria Valencia has seven halls and entrances and more than 250,000 m2 of exhibition space that can be used to make it easier to spread visitors out.
