While the number of visitors is one of the event industry’s metrics to measure the success of a trade show, we always believe that quality should take precedence over quantity. Therefore, should we ever consider taking such a step, the number of visitors will not alone be a measure or a criteria on which to base such a decision.
That is why we will focus on the ROI of more than one or two criteria. And this will be based on timely market surveys, detailed analysis and projections.
We will follow all local government rules that are in place at the time of the event including hall and venue density.
With the implementation of Informa AllSecure standard, we have adapted meeting spaces to be fully compliant but also to fulfil the needs of our attendees. We will be having bigger meeting lounges, where tables will be distributed to enable privacy and also ensure social distancing. There will also be multiple meeting spaces dedicated to exhibitors where you can hold meetings with your visitors.
Online pre-registration including a health declaration will be required to attend the event to reduce the crowds in the registration areas. Onsite registration will not be possible. The entrances and registration areas will be spread around the venue and will be designed to allow for safe queueing and contact-less access into the venue.
Crowd Density Modelling calculations have been done to determine how many attendees can be in the halls at one single point in time. The number of attendees that can enter the venue depends on the size of the event and the space available. CPhI has a large enough space to accommodate all historic number of attendees.
Do not under any circumstances sign any form from: Expo Guide, ExpoFairs, FairGuide.com, Construct Data Verlag, Tradeconference.info, Fair Express Ltd, GETAFairs & Business, Direct Publisher, International Fairs Directory, GoFair.
These target companies through legitimate exhibition guides. Their current activities cover companies throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia. Expo Guide claims to offer online listing services. They use a form which resembles an organiser's free catalogue listing service, inviting exhibitors to complete the form for an entry in an on-line directory. Unsuspecting exhibitors who sign and return the form are then contracted into a three-year, non-retractable agreement, which could cost you a significant amount of money, with no foreseeable benefits. Included in their group is debt collection agency Gravis Inkasso Gmbh and Swiss debt collection agency Premiumn Recovery AG (a Construct Data subsidiary) which works in partnership with the various guides to intimidate exhibitors into paying.
These publications have no connection with us or any of our events. We strongly advise our exhibitors, and the entire exhibition community, to be most vigilant against this and similar organisations. There are many so-called guides that mail deceptive contracts and then harass those who sign them in error for money. However the sheer scale and systematic way in which these guides attack exhibitors is outrageous.
