Coronavirus (COVID-19) Briefing
Dear Exhibitors and Visitors,
All exhibitions planned for 2020 by Tüyap Group Companies will be held on their current dates. We would like to point out that the health and well-being of our exhibitors, visitors, employees, and all our business partners are always our top priority.
For this reason we are closely monitoring the developments of the COVID-19(coronavirus) outbreak in Wuhan city, Hubei Province in mainland China, and are following the instructions from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Republic of Turkey Ministry of Health as it relates to travel and health.
We are working with the authorities and our venues to put in place measures and will follow up as the situation evolves.  As of today, these measures include:
  • Enhanced cleaning and sanitisation across all public areas and customer touchpoints in the venue eg.  doorknobs, batteries, handrails, toilets, and sinks.  Disinfectants and sterilization materials for general use will be provided.
  • Enhanced personal protection awareness training to all staff. i.e. personal hygiene, frequency of use of sanitation/disinfection products, etc…
  • You may prefer and should expect others may want to avoid shaking hands
  • We are installing hygiene stations for your use in public areas.
As of now, there is no official announcement for any travel restrictions for March. Unless otherwise stated by Turkish authorities, we will host our exhibitors and visitors from outside of Hubei (Wuhan) and quarantine zones in mainland China.
As Tüyap Fairs Organization Group, we closely follow the developments on the subject.
We will be sharing our current action plan in line with the developments.
For more information, please follow the updates from local or national authorities on https://www.who.int/ and https://www.saglik.gov.tr/
With our best regards,
