Exhibit Safe

Creating safe stands for business

As we prepare to deliver Oceanology International there are some changes for our exhibitors to be aware of, to ensure we all create and maintain safe environments to do business.

For further information about the regulations for exhibiting please see the Exhibitor Manual

Enclosed stands

We recommend open stand designs which allow good ventilation and space for people to move freely. If enclosing larger areas of the stand, your Health & Safety documentation must demonstrate that it meets current stand build regulations.


Demonstrations are permitted if measures have been put in place to reduce or eliminate transmission risks.  You must have Health & Safety Documentation including COVID 19, which shows how this area will be monitored and controlled. 

Meeting rooms

Small-enclosed meeting rooms are not practical at this time. You are permitted to use open meeting space that is partially screened to give some level of privacy. This space should be sanitised between uses.

Cleaning & hygiene

You must provide hand sanitiser and/or hand washing facilities within the stand design. All high touch points should be cleaned regularly with appropriate cleaning materials during build, show open and breakdown.

Stand hospitality & catering

Please consult the Exhibitor Manual for the latest advice.  If considering a drinks reception think about how your customers would feel and if they would be comfortable to attend.

Promotional material

We encourage you to review your promotional material (e.g. product brochues and giveaways), and consider other more sustainable, non contact methods to distribute information. Find out more about how we are using Emperia for safe sharing of informion at our events.
