EEAA releases COVID-safe operating framework

The Exhibition and Event Association of Australasia (EEAA) has released an industry-wide operating framework to help facilitate the safe return of business events.

The Industry COVID-19 Safe Operating Framework forms the second phase of the EEAA’s #ExpoReady social media campaign, designed to instil confidence and to communicate to exhibitors, associated businesses and the consumer that exhibitions are ready to open their doors, and to do it safely.

The new framework has been designed in line with current Australian government health guidelines to prevent transmission of COVID-19, and outlines best-practice health and safety protocols that the industry can follow and incorporate with their own COVID-safe plans.

It provides overarching principles to deliver COVID-safe business events, trade and consumer shows of all sizes covering four key categories: physical distancing; cleaning, hygiene and environment management; protect and detect; and communication.
