UFI have added a case study of the recent Kintex expo that took place in South Korea May 8 - 11.
Due to reduced show scale (5 halls → 2 halls) and public fear concerning the virus, many visitors were not expected to attend the show. Unexpectedly, however, more than 45,000 visitors came to the show. Exhibitors were very satisfied with the number and quality of visitors even though the number of visitors decreased from 100,000 visitors the previous year.
The case study concluded that, "Although the first show ended without incident, the issues discovered during this event will be analyzed and a more thorough prevention plan developed and implemented at future shows. Depending on the size and nature of the event, additional contingency measures may be needed. That said, with thorough cooperation between the venue and the organizer, events can continue to be held in the era of COVID 19."
