COVID 19 - AND LARGE EVENTS/GATHERINGS.
The global community has been hit hard in recent months by the Covid-19 pandemic, which has led to a huge spread of infection, with many sick and dead.
Although Norway has been relatively well prepared and has avoided a very large number of hospital admissions and deaths, Norwegian society has nevertheless been hit hard, both in terms of individuals and the business community. As a consequence of the pandemic, and in an attempt to keep it under control, the Norwegian authorities have introduced a number of restrictions and guidelines.
For the organizers of Explore the World (in collaboration with TravelXpo), these conditions are especially important:
- Many of our partners from abroad have entry or exit restrictions and must in any case be in 10 days quarantine on arrival in Norway.
- It is currently not allowed to hold events with more than 200 participants (although this can be increased slightly by dividing it into time intervals.) The number basically applies in total and also includes exhibitors.
- The advice given with a view to avoiding the use of public means of transport as much as possible, will make access to the event significantly more difficult.
- In addition, there is other advice and infection control rules that must be taken into account, such as social distancing which will create major challenges in relation to the implementation of the event in practice.
As organizers, we are of course concerned with acting responsibly, both for the sake of exhibitors and visitors, but also in relation to society in general and the authorities' efforts to prevent further spread of infection.
Although no formal decision has been made yet, the current situation will make it very difficult to conduct such an event as Explore the World in January. Of course, we hope for more positive developments in the near future, but at the same time must allow for the possibility that it might need to be moved to another date.
We will post more updated information as soon as it is available and the situation is more certain.
