EduTECH is COVIDSafe

EduTECH 2021

Your health and safety is our primary concern.

The organisers and venue follow all government and health advice and EduTECH 2021 has been approved as a COVIDSafe event by the VIC Government.

COVID Safety Measures at MCEC

As part of our ongoing commitment to protecting your health and safety whilst at MCEC Melbourne a range of enhanced measures have been introduced across the venue to safeguard the wellbeing of our attendees, visitor, contractors and team members.

In response to the outbreak of COVID-19, MCEC Melbourne has put in place all steps and precautions throughout the venue as recommended by the Australian Government Department for Health, to help ensure the safety of our visitors and team members.

Wellbeing of Visitors

 

If you are feeling unwell please stay at home, this includes fever, cough, sore throat and or flu like symptoms.

Track & Trace
 

 

All attendees will be required to download the COVIDSafe Check-in app and will be required to scan into all areas of the event.

Physical Distancing

 

Crowd density in all areas will be measured and controlled. A safe distance of 1.5 metres between individuals will be enforced at all times.

Pre-Registered Attendees Only

 

 

Only pre-registered and ticketed attendees will be able to enter the expo halls and conferences. This ensures that everyone can easily be traced and tracked. As part of the registration process, everyone provides full contact information (including email, mobile and phone) making it very efficient to message and contact people if need be.

Maximum Capacity

 

The maximum capacity for MCEC is currently based on the 1 person per 2 square metres capacity rule.

We will be counting people in and out of the venue to make sure we aligned with the VIC Health requirements.

This venue is 12,000sqm which means we can accommodate 6,000 attendees at any one time.

Based on historical attendance at EduTECH, our usual daily attendance at any one time falls under this capacity level.

 

Face Masks

 

 

If face masks are required at the time, as part of the VIC Government mandate, all attendees will be notified in advance and required to wear a face mask as a condition of entry.

Directional Marking

 

We ask that all visitors follow the directional markings when waiting to enter the expos. We will avoid congestion at all entry points and keep people actively moving.

Hygiene & Cleaning

 

We encourage good hand hygiene. Hand sanitiser will be available at the event for use. The venue will have cleaners available to ensure soap and hand towels are stocked. All public areas of the venue will be sanitised regularly, airflow and circulation enhanced.

Show Entry/Exit Procedures

 

There will be dedicated one-way entry and exits at the venue. Contact tracing via QR Code will be required at the main entry points.

Medical Services

 

A dedicated first aid room and isolation area will be made available for any attendee feeling unwell or displaying COVID-19 symptoms on-site.

Food & Beverage

 

Food control measures aligned to the VIC Health requirements.

These requirements may change over time. At present, we are planning for a cashless event - only card payments will be permitted at catering outlets.

All consumption of food and beverages must take place seated. This includes the consumption of alcohol, which must be consumed within the café areas or designated networking areas.

COVIDSafe marshals will be on duty to supervise.
