“The trade fair industry was given the go-ahead in the last Decree dated 13 October. Inasmuch, Oil&nonOil means we are ready to start again,” said Giovanni Mantovani, CEO of Veronafiere. “This is our first business event with physical attendance after the lockdown, which is why we have worked with all our expertise to organise an event review that, in this period of uncertainty, would best support the sector and at the same time ensure maximum operator safety.”

Veronafiere‘s new #safebusiness prevention protocol will be implemented for Oli&nonOil, as validated by institutions, health authorities and the Italian Association of Exhibition Centres and Trade Fairs (Aefi).
Entrance and movement methods in the Exhibition Centre have been redesigned to ensure social distancing and an intelligent network of cameras will identify any gatherings in real time as well as monitor correct usage of PPE.
