Safe & Secure standards

Connecting our customers & communities safely

At the outset of the global pandemic, Hyve Group launched a dedicated taskforce responsible for ensuring the safety of our customers, communities and employees worldwide. Our teams have been working with major venues, industry bodies, health and safety experts, local and national governments and other event organisers to monitor the situation and make our events the best they can be whilst remaining safe and secure.

Hyve in Numbers

We create unmissable events, where people from all corners of the globe connect, learn and inspire, sharing extraordinary moments, advancing businesses and helping to shape industries.

Our vision is to create the world’s leading portfolio of content-driven, must-attend events delivering an outstanding experience and return on investment for our customers. This vision sits at the heart of everything we do and informs every decision we make. 

We have more than 130 events taking place every year, all around the world, and across multiple industry sectors from fashion to food and building to tourism.

Social Distancing

Construction Phase: We will provide enhanced guidelines to assist exhibitors and contractors in the set-up and break-down of events, tailored to each venue and location.

Meeting Areas: All rooms, including conference rooms, meeting rooms and rooms for social functions will be set up according to the social distancing guidance in place at the time of the event.

No Handshake Policy: We will request no direct contact between people in accordance with global and local government guidance at the time. We will limit printed materials such as show guides, flyers and brochures at our events and provide digital alternatives where possible.

Crowd Density: Standards will be applied across all our events to ensure that we have an appropriate number of people at the venues during each show. We have a number of measures that we can employ, including limiting the number of visitors per day, staggering admissions and making changes to the floor plan to improve visitor flow and avoid overcrowding. As always, whatever we do will be tailored to the venue and location.

Protect and Detect

Enhanced security checks: Where required by local government, we will introduce mandatory temperature checks and real name ID checks, such as those required in China.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): All visitors, exhibitors, colleagues and suppliers will be offered gloves and masks upon request if they do not have their own. Where such measures are enforced by local or national governments for use in public areas, they will be mandatory at our events. We will communicate this in advance, along with a reminder of our responsibility to keep all visitors safe by denying entry to those who are unable or unwilling to comply with all health and safety measures employed by Hyve or the venues.

Enhanced First Aid & Medical Support: This will be available across all our events, as well as dedicated quarantine areas, if required by local authorities.

Sneeze Guards: We will use physical glass or plexiglass dividers where possible, and will be providing staff with face visors or masks at busy areas including helpdesks and registration kiosks where frequent face to face interaction is expected.
