Health and Safety at Saudi Maritime Congress


Saudi Maritime Congress will be organised in accordance with Informa’s AllSecure health and safety standard.

As the world’s leading events’ organiser, Informa has developed a detailed set of enhanced measures to provide the highest levels of hygiene and safety at its events, providing everyone with reassurance and confidence they are participating in a safe and controlled environment.

When you join our event, you can expect to see that health and safety is a priority, and that a range of measures are in place to ensure everyone involved is able to enjoy a safe, hygienic, productive and high-quality organised event experience. All Informa events will be run according to official government and local authority guidance in the first instance, as well as any venue or location-specific regulations.

In addition, all Informa events will follow the ten Informa AllSecure priority commitments. Wherever applicable and possible, our events will also apply the fuller range of standards and guidelines described in the Informa AllSecure guidebook.


Cleaning and Hygiene

Enhanced Cleaning

All Informa events will undertake enhanced, deep cleaning before, during and after our events, working with venue partners to ensure the highest standards of hygiene and cleanliness. This includes continuous sanitisation throughout the course of an event, with a focus on high-touch areas such as door handles, restrooms and food and beverage areas.

Personal Hygiene

All Informa events will provide additional hand washing facilities and hand sanitising stations throughout the event space, encouraging all participants to regularly wash and disinfect their hands.


Physical Distancing

Non-Contact Registration

All Informa events will employ a system that facilitates non-contact registration for participants, including the availability of online registration.

Physical Contact

All Informa events will request that participants avoid physical contact, such as handshakes and embraces, promoting alternative ways to greet business partners. 

Physical Distancing

All Informa events will maintain a density of participants in line with local authority regulations and venue or other relevant guidance.

Food and Beverage Stations

All Informa event teams will work closely with venue partners to employ the highest standard of food safety, minimising self-service buffets in favour of pre-packaged food options. 


Protect and Detect

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Participants at all Informa events will be asked to wear a face mask on entry. Further items of PPE, such as gloves and eye screens, will be used by participants and staff if appropriate, in line with local government and health authority advice.

First Aid

All Informa events will have access to a qualified first aider and a separate quarantine area if possible. Participants will be asked not to attend if they are feeling unwell.

Screening

All Informa events will follow relevant health authority guidance on screening participants. This may include checking the temperatures of everyone on entry, through thermal scanning or other screening processes.

Trace and Contact

All Informa events will work with local authorities to trace and contact participants at our events, subject to local privacy regulations.
