Good Practices Guide for Exhibition Venues as Vaccination Centres
With an aim to help convention & exhibition centres and event organizers who are lending their venues as temporary vaccine centres, AIPC, the International Association of Convention Centres, ICCA, the International Congress and Convention Association and UFI, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry have published a Good Practice Guidance.
Events organized at these venues help in revenue generation and real advancements of economy and business and create synergies between local policies and objectives of event organizers. Event venues admirably supported hospitals and health systems during the first phase of the pandemic last year by throwing open their facilities to coronavirus patients. Once again, they have been assigned the critical role of serving the public by lending their premises for vaccinations.
Vaccination drive is a colossal exercise that requires significant planning, training, and addressing challenges pertaining to logistics, security, and several other aspects. It is extremely important to share the knowledge and expertise on doing this exercise safely and in a calibrated manner as it concerns public health and recovery of global economy. Effective roll-out of vaccinations around the world will speed up the return of face-to-face events besides protecting the lives and livelihoods for society, for customers and for everyone connected to the exhibition industry.
This Good Practice Guidance provides expert insights on some of the Best Practices that can be followed by venues when lending their facilities as vaccination centres. These include the initial considerations, considerations on planning, considerations on staffing and tackling the anticipated challenges which are likely to arise during the vaccination drive.
