10 KEY COMMITMENTS

1. Enhanced cleaning

BioEquity Europe will undertake enhanced, deep cleaning before, during and after our event, working with venue partners to ensure the highest standards of hygiene and cleanliness. This includes continuous sanitization throughout the course of the event, with a focus on high-touch areas such as door handles, restrooms and food and beverage areas.

2. Personal hygiene

We will provide additional hand washing facilities and hand sanitizing stations throughout the event space, encouraging all participants to regularly wash and disinfect their hands.

3. Non-contact registration

We will employ a system that facilitates non-contact registration for participants, including the availability of online registration.

4. Physical contact

We will request that participants avoid physical contact, such as handshakes and embraces, promoting alternative ways to greet business partners. The exchange of printed materials, such as business cards and sales brochures, will also be discouraged, with digital alternatives recommended.

5. Physical distancing

We will maintain a density of participants in line with local authority regulations and venue or other relevant guidance. This will be managed through one or more control measures such as pre-show communications to participants, a one-way traffic system around show floors, staggered entry times, on-site signage and floor markings and on-site social distance ambassadors.

6. Food and beverage

Our event team will work closely with venue partners to employ the highest standard of food safety, minimizing self-service buffets in favor of pre-packaged food options. If any queuing is anticipated, social distancing will be maintained through the use of floor markings and relevant signage.

7. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Items of PPE, such as masks, gloves and eye screens, will be used by participants and staff if appropriate, in line with local government and health authority advice.

8. First aid

We will have access to a qualified first aider and a separate quarantine area if possible. Participants will be asked not to attend if they are feeling unwell, and teams will follow local health authority guidance on detecting and managing anyone who displays symptoms of COVID-19.

9. Screening

We will follow relevant health authority guidance on screening participants. This may include checking the temperatures of everyone on entry, through thermal scanning or other screening processes.

10. Trace and contact

Should it be necessary, BIO-Europe Spring will work with local authorities to trace and contact participants at our event, subject to local privacy regulations.
