A few simple rules to stay safe at MIAC 2020.

Dear MIAC visitor, your safety, and that of every visitor to the event, is our priority. With this in mind, we have taken steps and introduced measures to allow you to visit MIAC in complete safety. Following a few easy rules, you can visit the international paper industry exhibition with ease, stay in the professional loop and keep your business going without risking your health.
See below for the few essential instructions you need to be aware of.

1. Social distancing

Inside MIAC halls – in communal areas and at stands – you must keep a safe distance of 1m from other visitors.

2. Face masks

Inside MIAC halls – in communal areas and at stands – you are required to wear a face mask which can be removed only to eat and drink at stands or at the bar. On entering the exhibition, masks will be given to those who arrive without one.

3. Hand sanitising stations

Hand sanitising stations for the use of all visitors to MIAC 2020 have been placed in multiple locations around the fair. Visitors are invited to disinfect their hands at the entrance to the fair and subsequently, several times, during their visit to the MIAC exhibition.

4. Temperature controls

To guarantee all participants, on entering MIAC, temperature checks may be carried out and anyone with a body temperature higher than 37.5 °C will not be allowed entrance.

5. Signposting at the exhibition

The aisles and communal areas of MIAC have been laid out with markers on the ground to help visitors stay at safe distances from each other and that should be followed by all participants. Inside MIAC, stewards wearing yellow bibs will be coordinating the movement of visitors and assuring compliance with the preventive measures introduced.

All steps have been taken to make your visit safe, hygienic, and worry-free. 270 international exhibitors are waiting for you in Italy. Pre-register online. 

By following a few simple rules, you can visit MIAC 2020 in complete safety and in full accordance with Italian government and Tuscany regional guidelines.

Useful to know as a guarantee to the participants

All toilet facilities are staffed and will be cleaned and sanitised regularly throughout the day.

Special products are used to clean and disinfect communal areas and stands at the end of each day by qualified personnel.

Clean air is circulated through the halls at regular intervals during opening hours to the public, as required by applicable legislation.

Staff serving food and beverages in the MIAC bar will be wearing masks and gloves. Plates, glasses, cutlery, napkins, etc. are all disposable.

Seating arrangements will be put in place in the MIAC Conference Room to assure one metre between one person and the next when seated. We recommend that you register online for conferences through the MIAC website: all MIAC 2020 conference programmes will be available there for consultation.

At MIAC there are two reception areas, one for “pre-registered visitors” and one for “non-pre-registered visitors”. Pre-registering online is the best solution and is recommended to avoid the crowds. Preregister and fill the form to book your visit to MIAC at your preferred time and on your chosen days. You will receive your Entrance Ticket via email – just print it out and bring to the fair to gain entry to MIAC and avoid any long queues at reception. Access to MIAC will still be available at the “non-pre-registered reception” if you want to register on the day of your visit.
