Paris, March 2022
Our commitment to your health and safety
As a trade show organiser, our aim and intention is to continue facilitating opportunities to network, discover new things and generate business, to promote innovation and create and foster debate with content specifically tailored to our communities.
Our priority is the health and safety of our staff, customers and partners and our goal is to give you a safe and stress-free trade show experience.
Our actions are guided by health measures recommended by the French Government, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the RX COVID Management Plan. We are also actively involved in work being led by UNIMEV, the French trade association for event professionals, to develop protection measures for trade shows.
Responding effectively to the risks of Covid-19 is a shared responsibility and RX France asks all participants to play their part in ensuring that the show remains as safe as is reasonably practicable. In this respect, RX France will communicate to all attendees that a person should not attend the show if the individual is showing signs as set out below:
- Is showing COVID-19 symptoms such as but not limited to: fever or a feeling of fever (chills, hot-cold), cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, unusual fatigue, sore throat or headache, loss or change in smell or taste.
- Has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 7 days.
Our onsite medical team will respond to anyone displaying COVID-19 symptoms in line with the directions issued by the relevant authorities. The individual should reconsider attending the show if the individual is a vulnerable person at risk of developing a severe type of Covid-19 infection, particularly if the person suffers from an underlying health condition.
Our Safety Guidelines are based on Reed Exhibitions’ 5-Point Plan and have been prepared in conjunction with the venue owner and the relevant authorities and in accordance with the relevant regulations, including Law n° 2020-856 of July 9, 2020 and Decree No. 2021-699 of June 1, 2021, amended by Decree No. 2022-51 of 22 January, 2022. We would ask you to comply with all safeguards and precautionary measures. Anyone not complying will be requested to leave the show.
