Commitment to Visitor Safety
SIEL-HORECA Expo is all set for 1 to 4 december 2021 at the Centre International des Conférences -CIC- in Algiers. We continue to follow this situation very closely and we will stick to every decision made by the Algerian government regarding the way that we can organise events.
Your safety is our priority, and we are in the process of implementing the health and safety protocols that have been defined in partnership with SGS. The new partnership will ensure you can participate with complete peace of mind.
Your safety is our priority and we have been working hard on implementing safety and sanitary protocols to ensure the event is safe for you to meet and do business again. We have partnered with SGS to ensure your safe participation and to ensure we can meet the highest international standards and protocols. The new partnership will ensure you can participate in SIEL-HORECA Expo with complete peace of mind.
Cleaning & Hygiene
Comprehensive cleaning and disinfection protocols
All surfaces at SIEL-HORECA Expo are treated with hospital-grade disinfectants. The most frequently touched surfaces will be disinfected at regular intervals.
Hand sanitiser stations will be available everywhere on the exhibition floor and in common areas such as seminar theatres. Please make use of them reguarly during the day!
Food & Drinks
You can still purchase food and drinks at our events and venues. For your safety, they are provided in prepacked servings, so there is no risk of infection. We kindly ask you to use the hand sanitisers available at catering points before eating and drinking.
Personal protection & detection
Automatic temperature screenings before you enter the event will tell us if you have a temperature of 38° or above. If this is the case, please wait for ten minutes and we will measure your temperature again. If on a second screening your temperature has fallen below 38°, no problem, welcome! If your temperature is still above 38°, we will be unable to grant you admission. We recommend that you check your temperature before leaving home as a precaution and to avoid any inconvenience.
We kindly ask you to wear a face mask upon entering SIEL-HORECA Expo. We encourage you to bring your own, but event staff will be on hand to provide one if you forget!
Plexiglass shields will be installed at registration desks, information points, catering points and counters staffed by team members where necessary throughout the event floor.
Social distancing and crowd management
We kindly request that you maintain a distance of at least 1.5 metres from other people. This social distancing rule will be adapted according the local safety regulations. Clear signage and floor stickers will help you respect this distance.
Elbow bumps replace handshakes!
Handshakes are “on hold” for the time being! We know this is tough, as a handshake is the natural form of business greeting. We suggest you greet with an elbow bump. A simple wave or a thumbs-up will also do nicely. So long as the greeting is without physical contact … feel free to use your own style.
Online registration and touchless scanning
Please register online before the event. You can either print out your admission voucher, which has a barcode, or bring it on your mobile device. You will then be able to scan the barcode at one of our touchless scanning stations.
By consulting our website you’ll be able to make your visit as efficient as possible. You can use the exhibitor catalogue and content programme to plan which companies and products you would like to see, and which seminars to attend. We kindly advise you to plan ahead so you can arrive on time for any seminars, as places may be limited due to social distancing measures.
One-way only aisles
One-way-only aisles will help to manage traffic and minimise crowding. They will also make it easier for you to respect the social distancing rules and avoid crossing the paths of other visitors.
Maximum capacity in conference rooms
Conference areas will also allow for social distancing, with 1.5 metres between chairs. This means there will be limited capacity, so please arrive on time. Some chairs may be marked as unavailable. Please respect this instruction and do not move the chairs.
Stay home if you feel ill
Finally, as much as we want to see you at SIEL-HORECA Expo, we kindly ask you to respect everyone’s health and safety. If you feel at all ill – including mild cold symptoms or a high temperature – please stay at home.
Thank you for observing these rules – stay safe and we hope to see you in December !
