Euromoney has established an Events Shield protocol to ensure all attendees' safety as we return to hosting in-person events, including the upcoming LMG Life Sciences Americas Awards next month in New York. The protocol involves four main components that adhere to safety standards in a Covid-19 conscious environment.
Events will maintain a maximum capacity and density of participants in accordance with relevant official government and regional guidance.
In most cases this will mean that events will be set up in such a way to allow physical distancing. For example, we may introduce barriers or floor markings to indicate required spacing, and for our larger events there may be increased spacing between exhibition booths and between seats in meeting rooms.
At all of our events, the emphasis will be on encouraging good personal health and hygiene with additional handwashing or sanitation stations available and prominent reminders for all attendees to make use of them on a regular basis.
We will work with the venue to ensure we maintain the highest standards of hygiene and cleanliness. We will ensure each venue undergoes a deep clean before the event, with additional cleaning measures in place throughout.
In order to run events in a Covid-19 conscious environment, we need to ensure all our participants, partners and staff follow the events procedures and protocols we put in place.
We will take steps to ensure our staff are appropriately trained to comply with the relevant local authority advice and protocols to deal with any potential instances of Covid-19.
Our event teams will communicate our health and safety standards, procedures and event guidance clearly to all attendees before the start of the event. At our events we will display our procedures in printed text or in graphic form, as appropriate, for all to see, absorb and learn from.
