Our commitment to your health and safety

Paris, July 2021

We look forward to welcoming everyone to Cannes where we are committed to providing you with the safest possible exhibition and conference environment.

Per application of the sanitary regulations, to access the show, participants (visitors only) must provide a valid sanitary pass. (For further info, please go to: https://www.gouvernement.fr/en/coronavirus-covid-19 ). 

We are working with our colleagues at RX (Reed Exhibitions), the host city authorities and specialist medical advisors to build a coherent and consistent programme of advanced measures to ensure our shows have health and safety measures as their number one priority.

Sanitary Pass

Per application of the sanitary regulations, to access the show, participants (visitors only) must provide a valid sanitary pass.

This sanitary pass will allow to prove a vaccination against Covid-19, a negative test or an immunity following infection. Equipped with a QR code, it can be contained in a smartphone or on a paper document. The European Medicine Agency has so far granted four approvals to the following vaccines: BioNTech and Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Janssen Pharmaceutica SA.
Notwithstanding our admission policy, we recommend to download the TousAntiCovid application on their smartphone, be vaccinated or have a negative test less than 48 hours old.

For smartphones: this sanitary pass will be available on the application TousAntiCovid for the French and for the European sanitary pass, from July 2021.

Mandatory face masks

Surgical masks will be mandatory for trade show participants, service providers and Reed Expositions France employees.

Hand sanitiser will be available during the event

Touch-free hand sanitiser stations will be located throughout the premises and in common areas (conference rooms, demonstration spaces, etc.).

Digitalised access passes

In order to avoid queues and frequent contact, we use print@home passes wherever possible, so remember to print your badge before the trade show.

Compliance with capacity limits and regulation of visitor traffic flows

We will ensure that maximum capacity limits are complied with in exhibition halls, conference spaces and food service areas...

Floor markings and a one-way system will help you follow social distancing measures.

Increased disinfection

Cleaning will be reinforced in all exhibition spaces and high-contact areas will be frequently disinfected.

New meeting spaces and conference rooms

Spaces will be reorganised to enable face-to-face meetings while following social distancing measures. These measures will also be in place for conference rooms.

On-site food services

Tables will be arranged to follow social distancing measures, with 1 m between each table and no more than 10 people per table. Health inspections will be increased and staff will be trained to follow health measures.

Special communication and safety reminders

Staff and participants will be reminded of health and protective measures before and throughout the event. Our goal is to open the doors to our trade shows responsibly, while protecting participants and our employees.

Management of people with COVID symptoms

A medical team will be present for the duration of the event. Suspected COVID-19 cases will be isolated and handled by suitable health professionals.

The Palais des Festivals et des Congrès de Cannes has been awarded GBAC STAR™ Facility accreditation, the international benchmark in health security.

After obtaining the “Sanitary Security Label” and “Ecovid Label” issued by SOCOTEC, in February 2021, the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès de Cannes was awarded North America’s top health certification for public hospitality facilities: GBAC STAR™ Facility. Awarded by the Global Biorisk Advisory Council, this certification attests the implementation of the strictest protocols in terms of cleaning, disinfection and prevention of infectious diseases within the establishment.

Already issued to the largest convention centres in the United States, this certification has for the first time been awarded to a convention centre in France. The Palais once again proves its commitment to hosting international events with the utmost respect for health protocols.
