Coronavirus measures during the Geneva Motor Show

While the eyes in the car country focus on the Geneva Motor Show, which will open its gates next month, the coronavirus keeps the minds out there. The congress center where the car fair will take place later, will take precautions regarding the virus.

It was announced yesterday that the Mobile World Congress, a telecom fair that was to open its doors on 24 February in Barcelona, ​​Spain, was canceled. According to the organization, there are too many concerns about the corona virus, and its possible further spread, for the event to continue. A mere two weeks after the Mobile World Congress was scheduled to take place, one of the most important car fairs of the year took place some 600 kilometers north-east of Bercelona in Switzerland: the Geneva Motor Show. That fair will continue for the time being, but the conference hall where the event takes place from 5 to 15 March will take precautions.

The Geneva Motor Show takes place in Palexpo, a conference hall located close to Geneva airport. It is Palexpo that claims to take a number of precautions on its website. For example, in places with many ‘contact points’, such as catering establishments, stairs, toilets, touch screens and at doors, extra cleaning points with disinfectants are placed. The organization also says to put up information boards to make people aware of the importance of good hygiene and the risk of contamination. In addition, the staff receive training, including on how to use the cleaning agents. More than half a million visitors are expected to come to the exhibition.
