PROTECTION CONCEPT CORONA

According to the decision of the Federal Council of 12 August 2020, the Swiss Economic Forum may be held with 1000 participants. The responsibility lies with the organizers and the individual participants. We take this very seriously. The safety and health protection of all participants is central.

 

We rely on a comprehensive protection concept which goes further than the necessary recommendations of the FOPH and the canton. The concept comprises three dimensions:

  • 1. hygiene
  • 2. keeping distance
  • 3. monitoring

 

The individual measures are explained below. Lorenz Scheibli, COO, Swiss Economic Forum AG C.F.L. Lohnerstrasse 24, 3645 Thun, is responsible for the implementation of the concept and for contact with the relevant authorities.

PROTECTION CONCEPT | HYGIENE

CLEANING AND DISINFECTION

We place disinfectant dispensers at the most important points in the premises. Surfaces that are regularly touched (e.g. counters, tables, handrails, touch screens) are cleaned more intensively.

SUFFICIENT VENTILATION

Our congress centres are equipped with the most modern ventilation systems, which enable separate exhaust and exhaust air control.

MASK OBLIGATION & RECOMMENDATION

Wearing a mask is mandatory in the auditorium as well as in the breakout session rooms. Guests who do not have their own masks will be provided with one. To protect all guests, we recommend wearing a mask if the minimum distances are not observed.

HYGIENE IN SANITARY FACILITIES

The sanitary facilities of the congress centres are cleaned at high frequency. Hand washing and disinfection facilities are provided at sufficient intervals.

DESINFECTION

We provide all participants with a disinfectant (small bottle). Sufficient disinfectant will be provided in the common area, the toilet facilities and on the partner stands.

NO-HANDSHAKE POLICY

Physical contact and shaking hands should be avoided.

PROTECTION CONCEPT | SPACING

CONTACTLESS WAY

Türanlagen ausser Brandschutztüren sind dauerhaft geöffnet, um den Kontakt mit Oberflächen zu reduzieren.

PARTICIPANT NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS ON THE EVENT SITE

By registering online, we can always keep an eye on the number of visitors and ensure that the minimum distance of 1.5 metres can always be maintained.

GENEROUSLY PROPORTIONED SPACE

The spaciousness of the indoor and outdoor areas allows for networking and exchange of ideas while maintaining minimum distances.

SEATING

To protect all participants we will adjust the seating and the number of seats. Standing room is not available. Where necessary, we will determine separate entrances and exits.

PROTECTION CONCEPT | MONITORING

FULL REGISTRATION OF ALL PARTICIPANTS

All guests are already registered in advance. In this way we ensure that contact tracing can be carried out easily in case of a corona infection. We register: name, first name, place of residence, e-mail and telephone number.

TEMPERATURE CHECKS

Thanks to hi-tech fever meters, we can detect people with elevated temperatures at the entrance. These persons are not allowed to participate in the event.

TRACING APP

Guests are asked to download and activate the SwissCovid app. In addition, the RFID tracking allows a subsequent tracking of possible cases of infection.

PROTECTION CONCEPT | PLUS
