Messukeskus Helsinki trained its entire staff in specified hygiene and safety practices


Messukeskus Helsinki, Expo and Convention Centre began preparations for the autumn season by arranging safety training for the entire staff. The aim is to make the trade fair visit completely safe for the client and at the same time as easy as possible.

-You can safely come to Messukeskus’ events. We have made preparations since spring, and the equipment and practices have been finalized down to the last detail. As the season starts, we will focus on guiding our clients through our safety arrangements. Exhibitors will also receive thorough safety instructions, says Maria Mroue, Marketing and Communications Director at Messukeskus.

Messukeskus takes care of the safety of its clients by promptly following the instructions of the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare and the Regional State Administrative Agency. During the summer, the hygiene level has been additionally raised by installing hand disinfectant automats and safety distance marking on the premises. Messukeskus offers a smooth entrance with automatic gates, the possibility of using electronic payment, service points protected with plexiglass and contact-free taps in all sanitary facilities. Efficient air-conditioning and in some places up to 14 meters high hall facilities improve safety. If an exhibition or meeting guest needs a personal face mask, hand disinfectant, handkerchiefs or other hygiene items, they are also available at the premises.

To ensure safety at the stand, exhibitors can rent, among other things, drop protection masks, hand disinfectant racks and surface cleaning cloths as well as floor stickers for safety distance guidance. We also sell economical hygiene packages to exhibitors.

As the first fair organizer in Finland, Messukeskus published comprehensive guidelines regarding corona safety already in the beginning of the summer. The guidelines are based on the recommendations of UFI, the international umbrella organization for the exhibition and trade fair industry and the Finnish umbrella organization of the business, The Association of Trade Fair and Event Organizers in Finland. They carefully take into account the instructions of the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare and the Regional State Administrative Agency.
