Elite Exhibitions have consulted with our Advisory Board members that represent all the leading cruise brands. We have also worked closely with our Strategic Partner, VIKAND, the global leader in public health. We are proud to announce our COVID protocol that applies to our 2021 events in Miami and London, Cruise Ship Interiors & Cruise Ship Hospitality Expo.
Cruise Ship Hospitality Expo America will be run following official government guidelines and in accordance with safety measures implemented by the Miami Beach Convention Center. We are monitoring government advice regularly to ensure the most up-to-date measures are met.
As a member of SISO (Society of Independent Show Organizers), all of our events comply with the official COVID Best Practice guidelines. In addition to that, we have collaborated with AEO to follow their COVID All Secure Risk Assessment Framework.
Please note that you must provide proof of being fully vaccinated to attend our events and a face-covering will be mandatory to enter the Miami Beach Convention Center. Face Masks will be provided on entry if required.
Please see the measures we will be implementing below. These will be continuously monitored and updated in line with the latest advice:
There will be no buffet style food on offer and lunch will be pre-packaged. Food samples will be permitted on the show floor
Face coverings are mandatory to enter the Miami Beach Convention Center. Face masks will be provided
We will increase the distance between chairs within the conference area and there will be no shared microphones
On-site medical support and quarantine area for those who do display symptoms
Increased ventilation throughout the halls improving air quality
All visitors will be able to select a sticker on arrival. The sticker will act as a visual guide for other attendees and exhibitors to inform them of how you would like to engage whilst at the event.
Wearing a green sticker means you are comfortable to engage as normal, wearing an orange sticker means you are happy to engage but would prefer to keep your distance and do not want any physical contact.
In addition to these, we will also;
- Discourage the handing over of business cards and request that badges are scanned instead
- Insist all registrations are done before arriving at the show to avoid queuing
As we get closer to the show we will be reminding everyone of these measures and informing everyone of any updates. All of these measures are subject to change by November and whilst things may be relaxed we will always put the safety of our visitors and exhibitors first.
If you do have any questions about any of the measures above, please do not hesitate to get in contact with the team via email@example.com.
