Your health and safety—and ours—are important! With 100+ in-person events globally, Questex is monitoring data daily by country, state, local government and venue, and incorporating The National Health Service (SNS) and WHO guidelines on vaccines, testing and protocols to achieve the best safety results.
All attendees will be need to carry with them their EU COVID Digital Certification, NHS COVID pass or valid proof of a full vaccination, recovery (more than eleven days ago and less than 180 days ago) or negative COVID test whilst at the event.
We are sharing our safety plans with you below. A highly detailed plan will created before the event and we will continue to monitor the best ways to stay safe which may result in adjustments to this plan.
Getting you back to business…safely. It happens here.
Room For Big Ideas
In accordance with government guidance and local mandates, our events will follow new standards for crowd density and social distancing, and we'll be operating at up to 75% of the venue capacity. This is conscientious event planning that provides room for you to think big.
We will be implementing a reduced-contact policy.
A Safe Space
We care about clean. It’s one of the most critical and effective ways to keep you and your fellow attendees safe throughout the event. We appreciate your cooperation!
We are working with Tivoli Marina Vilamoura Algarve Resort to create a safe and hygienic environment in which to deliver the event, in line with NH Hotel Group’s Feel Safe at NH measures.
We all need to do our part to keep our community safe. Plan to:
- Face masks will be mandatory in the congress centre (conference, exhibition & meeting rooms) other than when consuming food or drink
- We also recommend the use of face masks in other areas of the hotel including the R&R evening receptions
- Wash hands frequently and maintain personal hygiene
- Please not enter the event venue if you feel ill or display any symptoms of COVID-19 (e.g. coughing, fever, a runny nose, or loss of sense of smell or taste), or if you have been exposed to someone with a suspected and/or confirmed case of COVID-19 in the previous 14 days.
Multiple hand sanitiser stations will be distributed throughout the conference, disinfectant wipes and sprays will be provided throughout the venue in addition to signage to encourage regular hand-washing.
Enhanced and visible cleaners will be onsite throughout the event to clean public areas, registration areas, exhibition stands, session rooms, meeting areas, restrooms, catering stations and all high-touch areas etc.
We will be working closely with all suppliers to ensure they are adhering to COVID-19 health and safety policies.
We are encouraging the use of digital materials in place of physical promotional/informational materials.

Medically trained personnel will be available on-site to provide medical assistance, and isolation rooms provided if required. If you develop symptoms whilst inside the venue, please report to the registration desk so the onsite medic can be contacted.
A certified health and safety consultant will be employed to offer advice on detailed health & safety procedures, risk assessments, response plans & to monitor all suppliers & exhibitors to ensure a complete COVID-19 compliant event.
Whether it be through our show website, mobile app, email or on-site signage, we will be providing the essential information to keep you in the know.
We have an extensive new pre-event communication plan to ensure our delegates, sponsors, exhibitors and suppliers feel confident in our COVID-19 health and safety producers, as well as their onsite practices.
Safety reminders and any updated information from local health officials will be provided regularly.
Welcome packets will be delivered electronically to attendees before they arrive on site, explaining the specific health and safety precautions being implemented at the event.
