THE VILLEPINTE SHOW, WITH NEW HEALTH MEASURES
One of your main queries regards health measures in force at the physical show.
The French government and the federation of event organisers (UNIMEV) are currently in negotiation around this very topic. Here are answers to some of the questions you may have regarding the health measures in application at September’s show.
How will the show be organised regarding badges and arrival?
Visitors and exhibitors will only use digital badges. The flows of traffic will be managed at the entrance and exit of the show, in order to quantify the total population at any time, as the authorities have requested.
Signage reminding everyone of the social distancing measures to respect will be placed at the entrance and at strategic points of the show, while hand sanitizer will be available at all welcome desks, information desks, and areas where the public are present.
It will be compulsory to wear a mask at the show.
How many people can attend the show?
The social distancing requirements of the health authorities are easily compatible with the size of Paris Nord Villepinte, and will allow us to welcome the usual number of visitors to the show. The aisles will be never less than 3m wide in order to maintain a comfortable flow of traffic in both directions.
How many people can be on the stand at any time?
The surface area of the stand should make it possible to maintain a social distance of one metre between individuals, meaning there should be 3 to 4 m² per person. Therefore, a 36m² closed stand can hold 9-12 people- including the staff- at the same time.
What are the recommendations on the stand?
There are no official regulations governing this aspect, but here are our recommendations:
- The visitors will be asked to use hand sanitizer before touching your products, and therefore ideally as they enter the stand.
- Each sales person should have their own collection, that they are the only ones to handle.
- Wear a mask
- Maintain a distance of one metre between individuals, so ideally one buyer and one sales person per table.
Services (catering, rest areas, documentation, etc.)
All the services required for the show to operate normally will be present as usual. Refreshment areas, rest areas and welcome areas in general will be larger, in order to ensure social distancing. Catering services offering takeaway or delivery to the stand will be enhanced.
No paper documentation will be distributed, all the show information will be available on the Première Vision Paris website and app. We recommend that you do the same.
How to get to Paris Nord Villepinte
The shuttle service from Porte Maillot will be strengthened, with greater frequency to and from the show.
The taxi service we organise at Paris Nord Villepinte will also be strengthened.
The health measures currently in force on public transport in Paris should be relaxed by September. In addition, negotiations are underway between the federation of event organisers and the Paris transport authorities to increase the frequency of RER trains calling at Parc des Expositions station.
Are these the definitive measures?
These measures have been drawn up in line with the latest recommendations from the health authorities. They will evolve in line with the requirements set out by them.
We will, of course, keep you informed of any changes that may occur.
