Commitment to Visitor Safety

The health and safety of our attendees and all staff is of paramount importance when running face-to-face events, and we are working hard with the venue and relevant industry bodies to ensure that there is absolute peace of mind whilst experiencing the event in a safe and healthy environment.

As such, we have put in place a comprehensive series of steps to ensure we provide a safe and successful event for everyone involved. We ask that you read and follow the guidelines below to prepare you for your visit to the event and to safeguard the health and safety of both yourself and those around you.

Committed to the safety of our visitors

At Empack and Logistics & Automation Porto we are prepared so that your visit, on the 26th and 27th of May at Exponor Porto, is under the established safety, health and social distancing measures.

We are in permanent contact with the Government, Exponor and Events Organizing Associations that have the most updated information about the prevention and dissemination of COVID-19 and we will follow the established guidelines, with the advice of our advisory board.

Your safety is our priority and we have worked hard to implement the defined health and safety protocols in conjunction with SGS. Our alliance with SGS will ensure that you attend our event with complete peace of mind.

Cleaning & Hygiene

Comprehensive cleaning and disinfection protocols

All surfaces at Empack and Logistics & Automation 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. You will either receive your Smart Badge in the mail before the show, or you can print it out at the entrance. Thanks to the embedded NFC chip you can use your badge throughout the event to gather product and stand information with a swipe of your badge. At the end of the day you receive all collected information via email.

Personal protection & detection

Temperature screenings

It is a condition on entry to Exponor that everyone, without exception, must have their TEMPERATURE TAKEN using the system provided for this purpose. Automatic temperature screenings before you enter the event will tell us if you have a temperature of 37° or above. If your temperature is above 37°, we will be unable to grant you admission. We recommend that you check your temperature before leaving home as a precaution and to avoid any inconvenience.

Face masks

Wear a face mask is mandatory upon entering Empack and Logistics & Automation and Exponor.

Physical distancing

Crowd density standards

To ensure appropriate physical distancing during Empack and Logistics & Automation 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 2 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.

Online registration and touchless scanning

Please register online before the event, as registration onsite is not possible. 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. If you register more than 3 weeks prior to the event*, you will more than likely receive your badge in the post saving you time and eliminating overcrowding at registration.

*May be subject to changes by the Organization.

Registration timeslot

We will make it convenient for you to register for a specific timeslot so that we can ensure compliance with crowd density standards, while saving you time. You can amend the time slot you selected when registering, by using your registration key that you will find in your confirmation email.

One-way aisles and directional walkways

At Empack and Logistics & Automation 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 2 metres between chairs. This means there will be limited capacity, so please arrive on time. 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 Empack and Logistics & Automation, 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 in May!
