We all understand that networking and group behavior is changing. We are researching the best practices and focusing on creating opportunities and environments that foster connection, while ensuring you feel confident that your health and safety are front of mind.

Redesigning our markets

Pre-Event Communication

Safer, cleaner, better. We are looking to adjust our floor plans and common areas to ensure social distancing limitations for all guests based on the city, state, federal and facility guidelines.

Our team is working closely with all of our facilities and event production partners to ensure that proper hygiene and safety standards will be put into place. 

Future Market Floor Plans

Physical Design For F2F Market

It’s important for us to look at redesigning our floor plans and focus on key areas such as:

Registration

  • Limit number of registration desks and staff, all properly outfitted for safety concerns
  • Contactless registration methods
    • Consider installing plexiglass between registration staff and guests
    • Sending pre-registration badges in advance via email or mail to allow buyers to bypass check-in
  • Stagger badge pick-up to avoid long lines and traffic
  • Frequent sanitation of countertops, equipment, publication bins, etc.
  • Consider using 4-6 feet per person as we plan our registration area
  • Provide Sanitation Kits

Market Floor

  • Install floor decals to ensure proper social distancing with 6-foot spacing
  • Sanitation stations
  • Increase number and width of aisles
  • Directional traffic
  • Designated buyer hours for “at-risk” attendees

Meeting Etiquette

  • Social Distancing
  • Refrain from close contact: hugging, hand shakes, high-fives
Market Food Offerings

In-Booth Catering & Concession Stands

  • Offer only boxed and pre-plated options for takeaway dining
  • Stagger dining times to minimize groups
  • Incorporate immune-boosting food and drink items for sale
