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.
If you are feeling unwell please stay at home, this includes fever, cough, sore throat and or flu like symptoms.
At this current time, Track & Trace is not required. However, at the time of the event, if the Government health order changes, Track & Trace will be implemented. All attendees are required to pre-register meaning we do have a method to communicate with all attendees even without the COVIDSafe check-in app.
Crowd density is no longer required. However, we still encourage to maintan a safe distance.
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.
At this current time, there is no capacity limit. However, if at the time of the event this changes, capacity limits will be implemented.
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.
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.
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.
There will be dedicated one-way entry and exits at the venue.
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 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.
