A safe place to meet

Regardless of the size of the gathering, it is recommended to keep distance, avoid crowding and enable good hygiene. Read more in Visita’s recommendations for safe conferences. 

Gothenburg’s meeting facilities have high priorities on hygiene and safety and have taken a number of measures to enable a safe environment to meet. Examples are distance markings, actions to reduce crowding in conference rooms and meeting spaces, offering more opportunities to wash hands and/or providing hand sanitizers.
In the same way, the hotels in Gothenburg have taken measures in order to ensure a safe stay, providing alternative check-in/check-out procedures as well as special breakfast and cleaning arrangements. In the publication Safe to visit, Visita – the Swedish hospitality industry, outlines measures to prevent the spread of infection in restaurants, campsites and hotels.

Since summer 2021, several of Sweden’s largest trade fair facilities have been covid-19-certified, including the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre and Gothia Towers. The international certification process developed by the Safe Asset Group ensures that the facilities’ preparations and routines for managing Covid-19 have been approved as “Covid-19 Compliant”. The assessment aspects include everything from management systems, risk analyses, signage and access to hand-sanitising stations, to training and safety routines.
