DALLAS, Texas — The International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE) released a white paper recently titled, Essential Considerations for Safely Reopening Exhibitions and Events, Version One, to provide information for exhibition and event organizers when planning for and producing an exhibition during a pandemic.
“Although we are eager to get back to our usual face-to-face business environment, safety must be the top priority and we must look to the science and medical communities for the best ways to go about producing our shows,” said IAEE president and CEO David DuBois, CMP, CAE, FASAE, CTA. “IAEE’s Health and Safety Task Force teamed with associations across the industry to collaborate with the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) in order to make sure we are applying the best information available to us as this most recent pandemic progresses.”
“It is important to remember that we are operating within a fluid situation and the information will be changing,” added IAEE Health and Safety Task Force chairperson Tim McGuinness, IAEE board director. “We will be updating this document as we learn from COVID-19, and even moving beyond this particular health crisis.”
