Health and Safety at FEI

FEI  will be organized in accordance with Informa’s AllSecure health and safety standard.

As the world’s leading events’ organizer, Informa has developed a detailed set of enhanced measures to provide the highest levels of hygiene and safety at its events, providing everyone with reassurance and confidence they are participating in a safe and controlled environment.

Placing your safety at the heart of our events

When you join our event, you can expect to see that health and safety is a priority, and that a range of measures are in place to ensure everyone involved is able to enjoy a safe, hygienic, productive and high-quality organized event experience.

All Informa events will be run according to official government and local authority guidance in the first instance, as well as any venue or location-specific regulations. In addition, all Informa events will follow the ten Informa AllSecure priority commitments. Wherever applicable and possible, our events will also apply the fuller range of standards and guidelines described in the  Informa AllSecure guidebook.

These security guidelines are also outlined in this short video. 

Cleaning and Hygiene

Here are measures we will take to facilitate the highest levels of cleanliness and hygiene:

Enhanced Cleaning

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

Personal Hygiene

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


We will manage physical distancing through the following processes:

Non-Contact Registration

Through increased use of technology, FEI aims to minimize lines and entry transactions. Visitors are encouraged to register online before the show enabling barcode scanning for contactless entry. Registration counters will have a partition between visitors and registration staff.

Crowd Density Standards (CDS)

FEI will maintain a density of participants. 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, and on-site signage and floor markings.

Physical Distancing

FEI is following a 3-foot radial distance / 6 feet of physical distance per person. One- way entrances and exits into and in the building including exhibit halls. Lounges, table rounds, seating areas will be arranged to ensure social distancing.  Elevators and Restrooms will have capacity controls.


Measures are in place for both protection and early detection:

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

All attendees and staff will be required to wear a face mask upon entry to FEI.  Masks will be available on-site if a guest does not have their own.

Temperature Screening

FEI will screen all guests for elevated (over 100.4F) temperatures via thermal temperature scanning prior to exhibit hall and conference entry.

First Aid

FEI will have access to a qualified first aid responder for any immediate medical needs or medically-related questions.


Official Vendors

Our vendors are taking all precautions and providing added tips on designing a Safe and Successful Event.

The Encore Boston Harbor has taken sensible precautions onsite such as:

Multiple hand sanitizer stations and disinfecting wipes available throughout the resort

Non-invasive thermal temperature scans at all guests and employee entrances (no guest or employee with a fever (as defined by then-current applicable guidance), will be allowed in the resort)

Enhanced cleaning and disinfecting of guest areas throughout the day

Mandatory face coverings for all employees and guests, with complimentary face coverings available for guest and appropriate and comfortable physical distancing

All Encore Boston Harbor employees have been thoroughly trained in health and safety
