Covid-19 Safety Plan
In the interest of making our events safe and providing peace of mind for all of our Visitors and Exhibitors, we have developed a COVID Safe event plan for all of our exhibitions. You can find our detailed plan below
If you are displaying cold and flu-like symptoms including a fever, cough, sore throat, temperature or even feeling generally unwell, we ask you to please stay at home.
Hygiene and cleaning
Hand sanitising stations will be placed throughout the exhibition and venue to encourage good hand hygiene practices. We encourage exhibitors to take advantage of lead scanner devices to gather visitors details rather than exchanging of business cards and to avoid handshaking/physical contact where possible.
In coordination with the venue, additional cleaning measures will be implemented including more frequent cleaning of high-contact areas such as bathrooms, catering areas, lifts and escalators.
At present, the VIC Government has reintroduced the 1 person per 4sqm capacity for events held at MCEC. This information is being updated regularly under consultation with the venue, National Media and VIC Health. All visitors must be pre-registered for the event and maintain adequate 1.5m distancing where possible. Additional signage will be installed at the exhibition to assist with social distancing measures.
Condition of Entry
As a condition of entry, it is mandatory for all Visitors, Exhibitors, Organisers to wear a face mask. Venue and catering Staff at MCEC will also wear face masks. Masks are available to purchase from vending machines located throughout the exhibition concourse. Alternatively, bring along your own mask if you wish to wear one. For further information, please visit the MCEC EventSafe Guidelines here. NB: These guidelines are constantly changing and this latest update is as of 29 July 2021, see up to date MCEC information here.
