Wherever you see Informa AllSecure, it means you can expect an enhanced approach to health and safety standards following COVID-19
Informa AllSecure is a set of standards that indicates an Informa event is following enhanced hygiene and safety measures.
All our events are run according to official government and local authority guidance, as well as any venue or location-specific regulations.
In addition, events that use the Informa AllSecure badge follow the below key principles.
Informa AllSecure principles
Cleaning & Hygiene
1. Enhanced cleaning
We undertake enhanced, deep cleaning before, during and after the event, working with venue partners to ensure the highest standards of hygiene and cleanliness. This includes continuous sanitisation 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 provide additional hand washing facilities and hand sanitising stations throughout the event, encouraging all participants to regularly wash and disinfect their hands.
3. Non-contact registration
Our event facilitates non-contact registration for participants, such as through online registration.
4. Physical contact
We encourage participants to avoid physical contact, such as handshakes and embraces, and promote alternative ways to greet business partners. The exchange of printed materials, such as business cards and sales brochures, is discouraged, with digital alternatives recommended.
5. Physical distancing
We maintain a density of participants in line with local authority regulations and venue or other relevant guidance. This may be managed through pre-show communications to participants, a one-way traffic system around show floors, staggered and expanded entry times, on-site signage and floor markings or on-site physical distance ambassadors.
6. Food and beverage
We work closely with our venue partners to employ the highest standard of food safety, minimising self-service buffets in favour of pre-packaged food options or serviced buffets. If any queuing is anticipated, physical distancing will be maintained through the use of floor markings and relevant signage.
Protect & Detect
7. Personal Protective
Participants and staff are asked to use items of PPE in line with local government and health authority advice. This may include wearing a face covering and the use of gloves or face screens in certain roles.
8. First aid
There is access to a qualified first aider, and access to a separate isolation area where possible. Participants are 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.
We 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
Where necessary, we work with local authorities to trace and contact participants at the event, subject to local privacy regulations.
