The organizers of the exhibitions for the food industry guarantee the creation of a strict organization for compliance with a physical distance of 1.5 m and mandatory use of a protective face mask by participants, workers and visitors; one-way traffic will also be organized. Inter Expo Center is designed for holding specialized events with all conditions. In addition to the measures taken following the instructions of the health authorities, internal "Rules and measures" have been developed. Intelligent control of the ventilation systems in the halls has been created. Full flow separation is provided for inlet and outlet airflow. The large volume of air in the halls, which are over 10 m high, is another prerequisite for a safe and secure environment at all times.
Crowd management, distance between the stands, strict control during cleaning
In order to avoid the possibility of crowding and queues at the entrances of Inter Expo Center and to ensure the smooth movement of visitors, a "smart introduction" has been implemented at the entrance of the halls to control the flow of people. A Crowd management system has been created. It implements the input-output mode - by marking all entrances and exits and indicating the direction of movement of visitors, as well as by using access management technologies. Since business forums aim to establish business contacts through business communication, the organizers can control the distance between those present. When designing the area distribution, the size of the paths between the stands has been increased to ensure the necessary safe and comfortable distance.
The developed "Internal rules and measures" recommend those present not to shake hands, and participants to regulate the flow of people at their stand. An additional measure is the strict control over cleaning and the availability of disinfectants.
