Health and Safety Measures at MAGIC

The MAGIC Marketplace will be organized in accordance with Informa’s AllSecure health and safety standard. As the world’s leading events’ organizer, Informa has developed a detailed set of enhanced measures to provide the highest levels of hygiene and safety at its events, providing everyone with reassurance and confidence they are participating in a safe and controlled environment.  

Placing your safety at the heart of our events. 

When you join our event, you can expect to see that health and safety is a priority, and that a range of measures are in place to ensure everyone involved is able to enjoy a safe, hygienic, productive and high-quality organized event experience.  

All Informa events will be run according to official government and local authority guidance in the first instance, as well as any venue or location-specific regulations. In addition, all Informa events will follow the ten Informa AllSecure priority commitments. 

Cleaning and Hygiene 

ENHANCED CLEANING

All 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 sanitization throughout the course of an event, with a focus on high-touch areas such as door handles, restrooms and food and beverage areas.

Both the Las Vegas Convention Center and the Jacob K. Javits Center are in the process of receiving  the GBAC STAR™ Accreditation, the cleaning industry’s only outbreak response and recovery accreditation. Facilities must demonstrate compliance with the program’s 20 elements, which range from standard operating procedures and risk assessment strategies, to personal protective equipment and emergency preparedness and response measures.

PERSONAL HYGIENE

All events will provide additional hand washing facilities and hand sanitizing stations throughout the event space, encouraging all participants to regularly wash and disinfect their hands.

Physical Distancing

NON-CONTACT REGISTRATION

All events will employ a system that facilitates non-contact registration for participants, including the availability of online registration.

PHYSICAL CONTACT

All 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.

PHYSICAL DISTANCING

All events will maintain a density of participants in line with local authority regulations and venue or orther relevant guidance. A minimum of 6’ distance between other people will be implemented. 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.

FOOD AND BEVERAGE STATIONS

All event teams will work closely with venue partners to employ the highest standard of food safety, minimizing self-service buffets in favor of pre-packaged food options. If any queuing is anticipated, social distancing will be maintained through the use of floor markings and relevant signage.

Detect and Protect

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)

Participants at all events will be asked to wear a face mask. 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.

FIRST AID

All 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.

SCREENING

All events will follow relevant health authority guidance on screening participants. This may include checking the temperatures of everyone on entry, through thermal scanning or other screening processes.

TRACE AND CONTACT

Should it be necessary, we will work with local authorities to trace and contact participants at our events, subject to local privacy regulations.
