Lab Safety Measures - Lab Innovations UK

Our commitment to your safety

Easyfairs has worked hard on safety and sanitary protocols to ensure our events are safe harbours for communities to meet and do business. We have invested in a wide range of solutions, from new hospital-grade cleaning routines to contactless technology, to facilitate physical distancing and an impeccable level of hygiene.

Your safety has always been one of our top priorities, and now more than ever. We are looking forward to welcoming you back at Lab Innovations on 4 & 5 November 2020 and we are committed to making our events and venues the cleanest and safest place to meet and do business.

Your health and wellbeing is key in our safety commitment to you. We have raised our already high standards of hygiene and developed new health and safety protocols to meet the challenges presented by Covid-19. You can visit our events with complete peace of mind.

Before your visit, please take the time to read all the measures that have been taken to protect your health and wellbeing and how you can best prepare your visit to Lab Innovations.

Cleaning & Hygiene

Comprehensive cleaning and disinfection protocols

All surfaces at Lab Innovations are treated with hospital-grade disinfectants. The most frequently touched surfaces will be disinfected at regular intervals. Electrostatic spraying technology ensures the highest standards of hygiene.

Hand hygiene

Hand sanitiser stations will be available everywhere on the exhibition floor and in common areas such as seminar theatres. Please make use of them reguarly during the day!

Smart Badge contactless technology

The safest way to visit an event is through the use of our Smart Badge, which requires no physical contact and guarantees a 100% safe event experience. If you have registered for the show prior to mid-October, your Smart Badge will be sent to you. If you haven’t received your badge in that mail to the address you specify, you can get your Smart Badge at the entrance of the event after having scanned the barcode on your printed voucher or mobile device. Thanks to the embedded NFC chip you can use your badge on readers distributed throughout the event to gather product and stand information.

Cashless payment

To protect your personal health and safety, we only accept cashless payments at Lab Innovations.

Food & Drinks

You can still purchase food and drinks at our events and venues. For your safety, they are provided in prepacked servings, so there is no risk of infection. We kindly ask you to use the hand sanitisers available at catering points before eating and drinking.

Personal protection & detection

Face masks

We kindly ask you to wear a face mask upon entering the event. We encourage you to bring your own, but event staff will be on hand to provide one if you forget!

Plexiglass shields

Plexiglass shields will be installed at registration desks, information points, catering points and  counters staffed by team members where necessary throughout the event floor.

Physical distancing

Crowd density standards

To ensure appropriate physical distancing during Lab Innovations we will control the number of people present in the event halls at all times, in accordance with local guidance.

Social distancing and crowd management

We kindly request that you maintain a distance of at least 1.5 metres from other people. This social distancing rule will be adapted according the local safety regulations. Clear signage and floor stickers will help you respect this distance.

Alternative Handshakes

We are implementing a strict no contact policy. So please avoid handshakes with everyone, including exhibitors.

Online registration and touchless scanning

Please register online before the event, as registration onsite is not possible. If you have not received your Smart Badge to the address you have provided before the event, you can either print out your admission voucher, which has a barcode, or bring it on your mobile device. You will then be able to scan the barcode at one of our touchless scanning stations.

Online ticket sales

Some Easyfairs events require you to purchase a ticket. Please purchase it/them online in advance, as this will not be possible onsite. You can either print out your ticket, which has a barcode, or bring it on your mobile device. You will then be able to scan the barcode at one of our touchless scanning stations. Please note that for your safety, onsite printing is no longer possible.

Registration timeslot

We will make it convenient for you to register at a specific timeslot so that we can ensure compliance with crowd density standards, while saving you time.

Online assistance

By consulting our website you’ll be able to make your visit as efficient as possible. You can use the exhibitor catalogue and content programme to plan which companies and products you would like to see, and which seminars to attend.  We kindly advise you to plan ahead so you can arrive on time for any seminars, as places may be limited due to social distancing measures.

One-way aisles and directional walkways

At Lab Innovations we have implemented one-way aisles and directional walkways.

One-way-only aisles will help to manage traffic and minimise crowding. They will also make it easier for you to respect the social distancing rules and avoid crossing the paths of other visitors.

On paths where there is enough room for people to walk in both directions, please keep to your side as indicated by the directional arrows.

Maximum capacity in conference rooms

Conference areas will also allow for social distancing, with 1.5 metres between chairs. This means there will be limited capacity, so please arrive early. Some chairs may be marked as unavailable. Please respect this instruction and do not move the chairs.

Stay home if you feel ill

Finally, as much as we want to see you at our events, we kindly ask you to respect everyone’s health and safety. If you feel at all ill – including mild cold symptoms or a high temperature – please stay at home.

Thank you for observing these rules – stay safe and we hope to see you soon!

Your safety is our priority and we have been working hard on implementing safety and sanitary protocols to ensure the event is safe for you to meet and do business again. We have partnered with SGS to ensure your safe participation and to ensure we can meet the highest international standards and protocols. The new partnership will ensure you can participate with complete peace of mind.
