Frequently asked questions about Vélovak
Vélovak can be visited on 19, 20 and 21 September with a Covid-pass, after which the 1,5 meter distance rule will expire. The Dutch government made this final decision in its press conference on 14 September. Below we answer the most common questions.
You will receive access to the event with one of the followings proofs:
A complete corona vaccination with a European approved vaccine. In the Netherlands, a vaccination is usually valid from 14 days after you have been fully vaccinated. Were you vaccinated with Janssen on or after 14 August 2021? Then your vaccination in the Netherlands is valid after 28 days.
An evidence of a positive corona test from a minimum of 11 days and a maximum of 180 days ago.
Negative test result:
A negative test result less than 24 hours before your visit to the event. Both a PCR and antigen test are valid.
European countries have agreed that every country must have a system for a Covid-pass. They call this the EU Digital Corona Certificate (EU DCC). International exhibitors and visitors can enter the exhibition floor with their covid certificate.
The Corona Check takes place before the entrance.
The Corona Check applies to everyone who visits the event:
– Visitors (over 13 years old)
– Exhibitors (stand crew)
– Employees at Easyfairs.
No, because the occupancy rate is low during those moments. In addition, the open doors provide extra air circulation.
Yes, the Corona Check takes place every event day. Even if you leave the exhibition floor in the meantime, a new check is needed.
No, it’s not possible to visit the event without a valid Covid-pass.
Yes, that is mandatory. We want to make sure that everyone who enters the exhibition floor can do so safely. For that reason, we check whether the data on the Corona admission ticket match the ID data.
Wearing a face mask is no longer mandatory, but we do make face masks available free of charge to those who feel comfortable wearing them. Sanitizer stations will also be placed at various points on the exhibition floor so that you can disinfect your hands as desired. Furthermore, there will be the possibility to disinfect hands at every stand. In addition, we have further optimized our air treatment systems in the past period. This helps to limit the transmission of respiratory infections, such as COVID-19. In addition, there is now an even healthier and more pleasant indoor climate in our exhibition halls.
The role of a fair is very important in many ways. There are several sectors in the Netherlands that have experienced the negative consequences of the corona pandemic. The Dutch government therefore sees fairs as the drivers of the recovery of the economy. This is where supply and demand come together, tomorrow’s innovations are presented and Dutch business meets. There are industries that realize up to 40 percent of their annual turnover on exchanges. A trade fair is also indispensable for other service providers, such as stand builders. Furthermore, the local and regional economy also benefits when a trade fair or event takes place, such as hotels, taxi services and restaurants.
Recently, we conducted a large-scale survey among visitors to trade fairs taking place this autumn. In total, more than 6,000 respondents took part. This showed that 90% of the visitors are planning to visit fairs again this autumn.
Easyfairs follows the measures taken by the Dutch government. European countries have agreed that every country must have a system for a Covid-pass. They call this the EU Digital Corona Certificate (EU DCC). International exhibitors and visitors can enter the exhibition floor with their covid certificate.
