Safety Guidelines - Packaging Premiere Milano

Commitment to Packaging Première Community Safety

In order to deliver a safe environment in which the entire Community can feel confident and focused on business, networking and engagement, Packaging Première partnered with SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company.

Packaging Première is in the process of implementing the health and safety protocols that have been defined in partnership with SGS, to ensure meeting the highest international hygiene and safety standards.

The main priority of Packaging Première, in its continuous and careful assessment of the situation, is the well-being, health and safety of its employees, visitors and exhibitors.

Packaging Première reaffirms its commitment to ensuring the industry has this valuable opportunity to gather and reignite business opportunities as the world emerges from the Coronavirus pandemic.

We continue to liaise with the Government, Fiera Milano and the Association of Event Organisers, who have the most up-to-date information regarding the prevention and spread of COVID-19 and will follow all guidance set out by them.

Your safety is our priority, and we are in the process of implementing the health and safety protocols that have been defined in partnership with SGS. The new partnership will ensure you can participate with complete peace of mind.

Cleaning & Hygiene

Comprehensive cleaning and disinfection protocols

All surfaces at Packaging Première 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. Please make use of them regurarly 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. 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.

Cashless payment

To protect your personal health and safety, we only accept cashless payments at Easyfairs venues.

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

Temperature screenings

Temperature screenings before you enter the event will tell us if you have a temperature of 37,5° or above. If this is the case, take a seat in the designated area for ten minutes and we will measure your temperature again. If on a second screening your temperature has fallen below 37,5°, no problem, welcome! If your temperature is still above 37,5°, 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

It’s compulsory to wear a face mask upon entering Packaging Première.

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 Packaging Première we will control the number of people present in the event hall at all times, in accordance with local guidance. For this reason it is compulsory to use the exit gate indicated by appropriate signs. The entrance gate cannot be used to exit the pavilion at any time.

Social distancing and crowd management

We kindly request that you maintain a distance of at least 1.5 metres from other people. Clear signage and floor stickers will help you respect this distance.

Elbow bumps replace handshakes!

Handshakes are “on hold” for the time being! We know this is tough, as a handshake is the natural form of business greeting. We suggest you greet with an elbow bump. Alternatively, a nice “air kiss” is a friendly way to greet. A simple wave or a thumbs-up will also do nicely. So long as the greeting is without physical contact … feel free to use your own style.

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 6 weeks prior to the event, you will more than likely receive  your badge in the post saving you time and eliminating overcrowding at registration.

Online ticket sales

If you are registering for BAAPS, ISAPS or Tapan Patel’s half day course, please purchase your ticket 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.

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.

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 only aisles

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.

Directional walkways

At Packaging Première we have implemented directional walkways.

On paths 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 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 Packaging Première, 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!
