30 July 2020 News On July 24, the Government of St. Petersburg published a resolution "On Amendments to the Resolution of the Government of St. Petersburg dated 13.03.2020 No. 121", in accordance with which work and the possibility of visiting organizations carrying out exhibition activities in St. Petersburg were resumed. “The main result of our work and government support, we consider this decision - the beginning of our activities and the resumption of cultural and business activities” - Sergey Voronkov, President of the Russian Union of Exhibitions and Fairs, General Director of ExpoForum-International. 4 months have passed since the introduction of restrictive measures in St. Petersburg in order to prevent the spread of a new coronavirus infection. Stressful situations always test the strength of both personal relationships and work. During the entire period of self-isolation, the MVK team continued to work actively in a remote format: continuous sales of exhibition stands and campaigns to attract visitors to autumn exhibitions, regular discussions of project development strategies, constant communication with participants and partners - all this allowed us to meet the good news about the resumption of business activity fully armed! We are completely ready to hold exhibitions in early September, as we did not stop for a minute and believed! The past online events in 2020 only strengthened our commitment to fulfilling our mission as an exhibition organizer - to create unique platforms for personal meetings of specialists, to help businesses build bridges for successful cooperation. Removing restrictions motivates B2B trade fair visitors more than ever to meet in person at trade shows. To achieve the previous indicators, it is necessary to work in an enhanced format. Here exhibitions come to the rescue, which are the most important tool for communication and business promotion all over the world. On September 2-4, 2020, the largest and most anticipated industry event uniting engineering, construction and interior themes will be held in St. Petersburg, the Expoforum Exhibition and Convention Center. Exhibitions Engineerica, InterStroyExpo, Design & Decor St. Petersburg will become the first offline B2B industry platforms in 2020 after a period of isolation, where specialists will be able to personally meet new and permanent partners, discuss current issues and changes in the industry. Safety first MVK is fully prepared for offline exhibitions. Anti-epidemic measures will be implemented at all stages of the procedure. The main value for our company is people: our employees, participants and visitors of exhibitions. We carefully monitor the current situation and follow the recommendations of the Government of St. Petersburg to ensure maximum safety of visitors and exhibitors, therefore the exhibitions will be held in compliance with all the requirements of Rospotrebnadzor. MVK, together with the Expoforum Exhibition and Convention Center, will provide the necessary preventive measures for participants and visitors: preliminary contactless online registration; remote marking; availability of PPE kits; additional disinfection of premises and regular ventilation; strengthening health care; navigation during events, taking into account the number of people in the room; schedule of events with a predicted number of people; organization of transport links with additional security measures. Traditionally, shuttles from the Moskovskaya metro station will run for visitors of the congress and exhibition center on the days of events. We are confident that three fruitful days of work at the exhibitions will be as efficient as possible for all specialists. See you at the exhibitions!
