COVID SAFE PLAN

KEEPING YOU SAFE AT THE BABY TO TODDLER SHOW BRISBANE

It’s important to us that both exhibitors and visitors alike feel comfortable in attending The Baby to Toddler Show.  We have been working hard to ensure we can hold our event with several measures to keep our attendees safe and secure.  Working together with our venue, the government, and the events industry, we have introduced a series of important operational changes as part of our new Safer BTTS Plan, a guide to delivering our events in the current situation. The key elements are outlined below.

We are also working very closely with the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, who are committed to delivering events under rigorous health and safety measures. You can read their measures on the BCEC website

Before you book your tickets, we ask that you read this information, which we hope will give you peace of mind ahead of your visit.  Please also make sure everyone in your group is aware of these measures and the steps they need to take to gain entrance to the show.

 

Should you have any questions please contact our team directly via email at babytotoddlershow@talk2.media .

 

Physical Distancing

Social distancing will be managed in line with the latest government advice. This will be based upon Government social distancing guidance.  We will continue to monitor this and will keep our communications up to date in the lead up to the event.
A new crowd management protocol will be put in place to ensure all areas of the venue are safe, in line with the latest government guidance.

Specialist social distance marshals will assist with the management of visitor flow.

 

Visitor Arrival

Temperature check will be a condition of visitor entry. Any person displaying a high temperature (and potentially the party they are with) will not be granted access to the venue.  If you feel unwell, please do not attend the event.

Advance ticket registrations: All visitors will need to register for their ticket in advance.  This will enable us to minimise queuing and contact on arrival through the use of enhanced technology scanners which will facilitate seamless and contactless access upon entry and exit.

At this stage we plan to administer staggered visitor session times (but this may change closer to the time, depending on government and health advice).  This will enable evenly spread attendance, minimising queuing to provide a safer and more seamless experience.  We will advise all ticket holders prior to the show if this is necessary, offering various timeslots for them to attend.

Track and Trace: All visitors and exhibitors will be scanned in and out of the event, and contact details will be kept securely for 21 days to support contact tracing in line with government and local authority guidance.

 

Floor Plan

Managed exhibitor numbers to optimise exhibitor to visitor ratio.

Clear signage and controlled visitor traffic will help everyone keep a safe distance.

Wider aisles to enable social distance and to enhance the visitor experience.

 

Cleaning and Hygiene

An enhanced cleaning regime during show open periods, with extra attention given to high-frequency touch points such as toilets, feeding and changing rooms, door handles and hand-rails.

Food and beverage retail services will be provided in line with the latest government guidance.

 

Personal Hygiene

Hand sanitisers will be provided throughout the Show.

Hygiene reminders to regularly wash hands, and refrain from personal greetings (a handshake or a hug) will be in place throughout the venue.

Face coverings are not mandatory but advised, in line with government guidance and should be supplied by the attendee.

Safer Payments: contactless payments will be encouraged throughout via card or phone, with an email receipt wherever possible.

 

Communication

The  show website, social media and emails will supply exhibitors and visitors with the most up to date information regarding health guidelines in place at the show.

Exhibitor manual will include specific details of what our exhibitors need to execute for the enhanced safety and hygiene measures.

Event signage will be displayed prominently regarding recommended guidelines eg. Social distancing and personal hygiene.

Public address during the show regarding physical distance and the importance of handwashing and sanitising hands.
