■ Clean exhibition with thorough quarantine system to defend against ‘COVID-19’!

In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection and ensure the safety of exhibitors and visitors which is considered the top priority, a K-quarantine system optimized for the exhibition hall has been established in compliance with the new ‘social distancing’ guidelines.

The entrance and exit of the exhibition hall will be restricted and the exhibition will be operated under a thorough step-by-step quarantine procedure. Each visitor will undergo an entry confirmation registration procedure using a thermal imaging camera and facial recognition heat sensor. If a temperature of 37.5 degrees or higher is detected, a second measurement with a non-contact thermometer will be performed to determine fitness of entry. Upon entry, hand sanitizer must be used, disposable masks and gloves must be worn, and quarantine personnel will be present at the exhibition hall to guide safe viewing and check whether quarantine supplies are being properly worn.

In addition, a quarantine system will be implemented in the exhibition hall to prevent visitors from deviating from the set pathway in order to minimize contact between visitors and prevent infection. Air conditioning facilities within the exhibition hall will be operated every hour in order to ensure optimal ventilation.
