A Questex Commitment
Together we can create a safe space where business can flourish.
Your health and safety—and ours—are important! With 100+ in-person events globally, Questex is monitoring data daily by country, state, local government and venue, and incorporating CDC and WHO guidelines on vaccines, testing and protocols to achieve the best safety results.
We are sharing our safety plans with you below. A highly detailed plan will be reviewed and approved by local authorities before the event. We will continue to monitor the best ways to stay safe which may result in adjustments to this plan.
Getting you back to business…safely. It happens here.
Room for Big Ideas
In accordance with government guidance and local mandates, our events will follow new standards for crowd density and social distancing. This is conscientious event planning that provides room for you to think big.
- We will follow the six feet physical distance rule, so watch for the Be Safe floor dots through-out the event space.
- We’ll be monitoring the event capacity overall and in meeting rooms specifically.
- Directional signage will keep traffic flowing smoothly to avoid congestion or areas that could lead to close contact.
- Educational session areas will have limited capacity, safely distanced seating and increased cleaning protocols. [Popular sessions may be streamed to additional rooms.]
- Meeting rooms will be spacious – with physically distanced seating between buyers and suppliers, and sanitizers available. Meeting rooms will also be sanitized nightly by housekeeping staff.
- Transportation will be via individual or group vehicles with socially distanced seating. Drivers will wear masks and undergo daily temperature checks. Vehicles will be wiped down with sanitizer after each run and have hand sanitizer available for guest use.
- Networking activities will be selected for their ability to follow our safety standards.
- Meals will be enjoyed alfresco when possible.
A Safe Space
We care about clean. It’s one of the most critical and effective ways to keep you and your fellow attendees safe throughout the event. We appreciate your cooperation!
- We all need to do our part to keep our community safe. Plan to:
- Wear a mask, or double mask, at all times
- Follow signage for safe physical distance
- Wash hands frequently and maintain personal hygiene
- Do not attend if you are not feeling well
- Sanitizer, tissues and disposable facemasks will be available in clearly marked areas.
- All attendees will receive a welcome kit that includes masks, hand sanitizer, antibacterial wipes and more at registration.
- High touch areas will have increased cleaning, including bathrooms, handrails, door handles, elevator buttons, and counter tops.
- Food and beverages will be safely packaged or distributed for minimal contact. And will be managed by trained staff wearing proper PPE. Seating will be physically distanced and outside when possible.
- Plexi-glass guards will be in high-interaction areas such as help desks and hotel check-in/registration stations.
Rapid Response Team
Questex is being hyper vigilant when it comes to safety. We’re monitoring data daily by region and venue and incorporating CDC and WHO guidelines to ensure we have the right resources and processes in place.

This will include temperature checks, CDC approved Covid-19 screening and rapid testing of all GMITE attendees and staff upon arrival. GMITE attendees that can provide proof of vaccination will not be required to complete a rapid test.
- We have aligned with local departments on processes for safety protocols and are prepared to act quickly if an individual is feeling sick or showing symptoms of illness.
- Medical personnel will be available on site to provide medical assistance.
Whether it be through our show website, email or on-site signage, we will be providing the essential information to keep you in the know.
- Safety reminders and any updated information from local health officials will be provided daily.
