COVID19:
JEC World Official Statement

February 13th, 2020

Dear Exhibitors and Visitors,

 

We confirm that the 2020 edition of JEC World will take place as scheduled, 3-5 March 2020, in Paris Nord Villepinte and JEC World team is looking forward to welcome you.

 

The safety and health of our exhibitors, visitors, partners and staff is our number one priority. Regarding the outbreak of the coronavirus COVID19, JEC Group is carefully following the World Health Organization’s (WHO) recommendations, EU and French Health Authorities recommendations and protocols.  Up-to-date advice from the WHO on this topic can be found here : https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/

 

Recent statement issued by WHO is available here: https://www.who.int/news-room/detail/30-01-2020-statement-on-the-second-meeting-of-the-international-health-regulations-(2005)-emergency-committee-regarding-the-outbreak-of-novel-coronavirus-(2019-ncov)

 

We strongly recommend to all participants, Exhibitors, Partners and Visitors, to strictly follow the travelers’ advice issued by the French Health Authority (Ministère des Solidarités et de la Santé), if they have travelled to China or have been in China recently. During the 14 days following their arrival in Europe, they should respect the detail of the recommendations presented below in French, English and Chinese. Our Chinese exhibitors will be informed in writing about these recommendations. You can download them using the following link:

Should there be any changes to the current status, we will follow and implement all appropriate instructions and recommendations from the World Health Organization, the EU and French Health Authorities.

 

As a consequence of the restrictions on travel from China prescribed by the authorities, as well as the reduced airline traffic from and to China, it is possible that some exhibitors and visitors from China take the decision to cancel their participation to the event in March or to be represented by their European agents or staff. Therefore, JEC World will be offering a digital platform to those companies unable to participate, allowing them to present their products online and offering to the JEC World visitors the possibility to connect with them. The JEC Group team is expressing its solidarity to the Chinese people and its support to the Composites community in China in this difficult time.

 

JEC World will adopt additional preventive measures such as:

  • Information to participants on personal preventative measures, e.g. personal hygiene, frequency of use of sanitizing/disinfection products, etc.
  • Hand sanitizing materials for public use in the entrances and in various areas within the show.
  • Doctors and paramedics team on site.

Increased cleaning and disinfection across all high-volume areas such as handrails, toilets and entrances/exits will also be arranged by the Exhibition Centre – Paris Nord Villepinte.
