Media Fusion’s ‘AllSecure’ Standards
Cleaning & Hygiene
1. Enhanced cleaning
All Media Fusion events will undertake enhanced, deep cleaning before, during and after our events, working with venue partners to ensure the highest standards of hygiene and cleanliness. This includes continuous sanitisation throughout the course of an event, with a focus on high-touch areas such as door handles, restrooms and food and beverage areas.
2. Personal hygiene
All Media Fusion events will provide additional hand washing facilities and hand sanitising stations throughout the event space, encouraging all participants to regularly wash and disinfect their hands.
3. Non-contact registration
All Media Fusion events will employ a system that facilitates non-contact registration for participants, including the availability of online registration.
4. Physical contact
All Media Fusion events will request that participants avoid physical contact, such as handshakes and embraces, promoting alternative ways to greet business partners. The exchange of printed materials, such as business cards and sales brochures, will also be discouraged, with digital alternatives recommended.
5. Physical distancing
All Media Fusion events will maintain a density of participants in line with local authority regulations and venue or other relevant guidance. This will be managed through one or more control measures such as pre-show communications to participants, a one-way traffic system around show floors, staggered entry times, on-site signage and floor markings and on-site social distance ambassadors.
6. Food and beverage stations
All Media Fusion event teams will work closely with venue partners to employ the highest standard of food safety, minimising self-service buffets in favour of pre-packaged food options. If any queuing is anticipated, social distancing will be maintained through the use of floor markings and relevant signage.
Protect & Detect
7. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Participants at all Media Fusion events will be asked to wear a face mask on entry. Further items of PPE, such as gloves and eye screens, will be used by participants and staff if appropriate, in line with local government and health authority advice.
8. First aid
All Media Fusion events will have access to a qualified first aider and a separate quarantine area if possible. Participants will be asked not to attend if they are feeling unwell, and teams will follow local health authority guidance on detecting and managing anyone who displays symptoms of COVID-19.
9. Trace and contact
Should it be necessary, all Media Fusion events will work with local authorities to trace and contact participants at our events, subject to local privacy regulations.
