COVID-19

What are you doing to ensure social distancing?


We will be following all current Ministry requirements and guidelines during the event. All booth sizes will be a minimum 100 sq. ft. to allow for proper spacing between exhibitors. We will be making our walkways wider in the Fieldhouse to allow more space to walk around other guests. There will also be markers identified on the floor to direct the flow of traffic. Volunteers will be around to assist guests in following the direction as advised. We will not be having a demonstration area this year.




Will there be screening upon entry at the event?


We will be following all Ministry requirements at the time of the event. More information will follow closer to the event dates pending government requirements. We are prepared to perform temperature checks, distribute screening questionnaires, etc.




How large are the tables?


We will be using standard 6 foot tables, however we will be encouraging exhibitors to stay on one side of the table an dnow allow guests into their booth. This is to ensure proper social distancing for the safety of exhibitors and guests.




Are masks mandatory? Will they be available at the event?


We will base this policy off of Ministry requirements at the time of the event, but Variety will have masks available for purchase if needed. Stay tuned for more information closer to the event.




How will you ensure crowds are kept at a safe size?


We are working with Wheel Trans to have time limits put on rides. We will also be encouraging guests to visit the exhibitors and continue on swiftly to allow others a chance to visit and experience the event as well. We will have staff and vounteers at the entrance.




Will there be proper cleaning on high touch areas?


Yes - we will be doing proper disinfecting of all major touch points often throughout the day using disinfectant sprayers and regular cleaning of all high traffic in the facility.
