Working on a plan of a conference organized under a new sanitary regime, we can specify the following measures that should be done by organizators if they want to conduct an offline event:

  • The space must guarantee an adequate distance between the participants.
  • All entering visitors should be automatically counted and have their temperature measured with contactless thermometers.
  • Importantly, the participants have to wear personal protection items and disinfect their hands.
  • Traffic inside the building needs to limit all unnecessary contact between those coming in and going out.
  • Free-to-use hand sanitizer dispensers should be distributed throughout the place.
  • Staff must disinfect the shared surfaces, such as handrails, elevator buttons, door handles.

Thereby, you can be completely confident in safety measures.

Yet, surely, you still can stay at home and prefer visiting online events that also bring people together.
