Covid-19 Health and Safety Guidelines

Informa and The Buildings Show care strongly about our network of exhibitors, colleagues and industry communities. It is our top priority to ensure our events will be organized in accordance with official government and local authority guidelines, as well as any venue or location specific regulations. The Buildings Show aims to deliver the highest levels of hygiene and safety at our events providing our community reassurance and confidence that they are participating in a safe and controlled environment.

We will be working with official government and local authority guidance, venue and location-specific regulations, and Informa’s AllSecure Standards to deliver The Buildings Show.

There are a few items to keep in mind for TBS:

  • We are following all the restrictions and requirements in accordance with the government guidelines (due to this they are subject to change). At this time we require all patrons, including exhibitors to be double vaccinated.
  • Exhibitors must sign off on the Covid-19 Health & Safety Declaration by Oct 31, 2021.
  • All exhibitors, speakers, attendees and staff will be required to wear a face mask that covers their nose and mouth at all times while at the event
  • Maintain physical distancing when attendees are within your exhibit space at 6’ from another individual at all times.  
  • Your exhibit staff should constantly sanitize high-touch areas within your booth space using one of the government approved products
  • Create full separation from your neighbouring booth by installing a full height 8’ drape or wall on each side of your exhibit space

We will be continuously updating our Health and Safety guidelines and protocol HERE

Should you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Operations Coordinator, Tarah Silva at

We will release a more in-depth plan within 3 weeks of the event.  This was written with federal, provincial and local health directives in mind and is current as of Sept 1, 2021. We continue to monitor any changes in the regulations and this will be amended to ensure continued compliance of said regulations.
