The Vision Council and Reed Exhibitions, organizers of Vision Expo, have updated VisionSAFE, the comprehensive set of health and safety guidelines, policies and resources designed to support a safe experience at Vision Expo East 2021, with specific guidelines for exhibitors. An exhibitor FAQs document is now available to view on the website, which provides detailed information on booth specifications, cleaning and health and safety recommendations and requirements for exhibitors.
The exhibitor FAQs includes information on:
- Updated booth specifications to accommodate health and safety measures
- Occupancy limits reflecting the number of people allowed in booths at the same time
- Distancing and cleaning protocols for customer engagements and transactions
- Changes to expect on the show floor
- Details on the “no handshake” policy
- Information about the Health and Safety Acknowledgement
VisionSAFE will continue to be updated and expanded upon regularly to ensure it reflects best practices and complies with CDC, local and state public health guidance.
The guideline complements the health and safety measures in place at the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC). The OCCC has strict health and safety precautions in place, including mandatory mask-wearing and social distancing. Additionally, the OCCC is part of a first of its kind collaboration between Orlando Health and Visit Orlando, which provides convention groups with personalized medical planning and support. The OCCC was one of the first convention centers in the USA to receive the Global Biorisk Advisory Council’s GBAC STAR accreditation, which is designed to help facilities establish a system of cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention. The Orlando International Airport holds the same accreditation.
Vision Expo East 2021 will take place at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida from June 2–5, 2021. The Show’s educational program, together with OptiCon@Vision Expo, will open Wednesday, June 2 and exhibits will open Thursday, June 3.
