The Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) recently hosted the city’s first exhibition since the Covid-19 outbreak, the 98th Hong Kong Wedding Fair from May 22-24, with a series of preventive measures in place.
The Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (Management) (HML) team partnered with the organiser to implement preventive measures such as floor plan design, queuing logistics at washrooms, ticket counters, and F&B outlets, etc. All arrangements complied with the requirements imposed by the local authority, and made reference to industry guidelines and best practices.
All visitors, exhibitors, contractors and HML staff members were also required to wear face masks at all times and had their body temperature screened before entering HKCEC.
In addition, sanitation and disinfection were carried out by HML staff regularly to ensure venue hygiene. Public facilities and furniture such as escalator handrails, doorknobs, lift panels, tables and chairs in the exhibition stands, etc. were sanitised frequently. The exhibition hall was disinfected at the end of each show day.
Monica Lee-MÃ¼ller, HMLâ€™s managing director, is excited about the industryâ€™s recovery.
She said in a statement: “HML is all set to welcome events back to the HKCEC. Health, safety and well-being of staff members and visitors have always been our top priority. The HML team has been working closely with organsiers to reschedule events impacted by the pandemic, and to implement necessary measures to address health and hygiene concerns.
“With the success of the Hong Kong Wedding Fair, we can demonstrate our commitment of providing professional services and customer care for event organisers and attendees.â€œ
