Public health measures

Published on by Jean Rusek - updated on

As INTERMAT organisers, our goal is to continue to foster business encounters and opportunities, and to share ideas.

To guarantee that their trade shows are a success, Comexposium, with the help of a wide range of participants, helped to draw up a "Health Reference Document" for the events sector.
We are sharing these measures and tools with you today to show our determination to support you in getting the sector back to work from September, and in a healthy and serene environment.

Our commitments

  • Protecting the health and safety of everyone, exhibitors, visitors, partners, service-providers and co-workers.
  • Respect for regulations and measures imposed by the authorities
  • Clear and transparent communications about the deployed tools and measures

Our measures


  • Masks required :

It will be compulsory for all participants, service-providers and co-workers to wear masks when the trade show is open to the public and during mounting of facilities.

  • Limitation of contact points

We ask our visitors and exhibitors to print out their badge ahead of time, so that they can enter the trade show easily, quickly and hands-free. Contactless payment will be preferred and available on site.
