Safety of events after the pandemic
The following study applies to the new security regulations for business events, such as: congresses, conferences, fairs, training sessions, team building meetings, product promotion activities and shows, marketing and branding events, as well as cultural events that will be organized after the pandemic.
The purpose of the works led by the Kraków Network Together project group was to create and then continuously update a set of guidelines and good practices that concern the organization of post-pandemic events, consulted with the TUgether Industry Crisis Staff (Branżowy Sztab Kryzysowy TUgether), occupational health and safety specialists as well as representatives of the medical and scientific industries, and was given the recommendation of the Krakow City Hall.
The basis to begin discussion on the new reality was formed of: WHO guidelines, OECD instructions, Chief Sanitary Inspectorate recommendations, American CDC recommendations as well as German R.I.F.E.L guidelines (created by Research Institute for Exhibitions and LiveCommunication). Our starting point, as a common position developed by the representatives of the entities affiliated within the Kraków Network initiative, was to adapt Chief Sanitary Inspectorate recommendations, and all the good practices that we aim at presenting, reach beyond currently known and forecasted guidelines, that consist of hints given by individual project group members and their know-how.
