Exhibitor Safety Recommendations

Recommendations to help protect attendee health and safety.

Exhibit booth design and layout should incorporate established best practice guidelines to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

All exhibitors must follow the health and safety requirements put forth by NAB Show New York management at the time of the event.

Please consider the following design considerations and safety measures:

  • Provide enough space for exhibitors and attendees to maintain 3’ of distance from each other.
  • Establish one-way traffic flow with marked entrances and exits.
  • Include dividers in areas where people will be in close contact.
  • Consider touchless (electronic and digital) alternatives to engagement. Use alternative forms of greetings, without physical contact.
  • Incorporate signage promoting health and safety best practices.
  • Plan for cleaning of spaces and surfaces throughout the day along with bio-enhanced cleaning practices before and after each day of the show.
  • Control/scale size and timing of meetings at booths.
  • Schedule meetings in advance when possible. Allow time in-between for cleaning of surface areas.
  • Give out promotional items digitally or in a single package.
  • Food and drinks: If providing food or drinks, have food individually wrapped (granola bars vs plate of cookies etc). Liquids should be in disposable cups/containers. Restrict eating and drinking to one area of the booth.
  • Provide hand sanitizer for personnel and visitors. Ask people to sanitize their hands before and after handling display material.
  • Whenever possible, display material should be sanitized before and after with sanitizing liquid or hydroalcoholic solution.
  • Eliminate soft seating to allow for cleaning and disinfecting protocols to be more efficient.
