Lab Innovations: visitors are in safe hands

The UK government recently endorsed the reopening of conferences and exhibitions, releasing a series of guidelines to keep participants safe. To guarantee that these are followed, Easyfairs, the organiser of Lab Innovations, has partnered with SGS.

On 17 July, the UK government confirmed that conferences and exhibitions will be able to reopen from 1 October. It also outlined specific conditions for the organisation of business events, a sector worth approximately £32.6 billion to the UK each year.

This is good news for Lab Innovations. The show’s organiser, international events company Easyfairs, has been planning for months how to adjust operations to guarantee a pleasant and safe experience to visitors, exhibitors and staff, without compromising on the show’s ability to maximise business opportunities and exposure for exhibitors.

In accordance with the new governmental guidelines, visitors will need to pre-register to attend. Registrations will be launched shortly and those interested will be able to register for free on the show’s websites. Carefully phased time slots will be available for visitors throughout each day, and each slot will be capped to prevent overcrowding.

Contactless registrations systems, a digital-first approach and the limiting of paper brochures will ensure the absence of queues and the minimisation of contact between organisers and guests.

Lab Innovations will provide guests with electronic badges. By tapping their badge to an exhibitor’s reader, visitors will receive all relevant information and contact details in digital format. As well as being safer, this complies with Easyfairs’ sustainability criteria and with its efforts to reduce paper waste.

All venues will also have enhanced cleaning procedures. For this purpose, Easyfairs has partnered with SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company.
