Covid-19 FAQ - Solids Rotterdam

Frequently asked questions about Solids

In the press conference of December 18th 2021, the Dutch government announced that the Netherlands will go into lockdown from Sunday December 19th to at least Friday January 14th 2022. In order to immediately slow down the spread of the omicronvariant, the number of contactmoments must be further limited. That is why transferlocations such as our eventvenue are closed. This lockdown does not currently affect the passage of Solids on October 4 and 5 2023. Below we answer the most frequently asked questions.

The current lockdown applies until at least Friday January 14th 2022. Solids will not take place during this period and therefore the current lockdown has no influence on the passage of Solids. The situation will be reassessed by the government on Friday January 14th 2022. As soon as more is known, we will inform you immediately.

You can access Solids with one of the following proofs:

Vaccination certificate :
Complete corona vaccination with a European approved vaccine. In the Netherlands, a vaccination is usually valid from 14 days after you have been fully vaccinated. Were you pricked with Janssen on or after August 14, 2021? Then your vaccination in the Netherlands is valid after 28 days. Usually, the Corona Check App can automatically retrieve your vaccination certificate from the systems of RIVM or GGD.

Recovery
proof : Evidence of a positive corona test from at least 11 days and at most 180 days ago.

Test proof:
A negative test result less than 24 hours before your visit to the fair. Both a PCR and antigen test are valid.

You can do this via the Corona Check App. When you arrive, you show your QR code that is in the Corona Check App. Don’t have a smartphone? Or would you rather have your corona proof on paper? Then you can also print the corona admission ticket via the website www.coronacheck.nl.

Showing other proof (yellow vaccination booklet or test certificate) is also possible. This also applies to the proof of vaccination that you received during the vaccination in combination with an ID proof.

From the age of 13 a Covid-pass is mandatory. From the age of 14 the Covid-pass must be shown in combination with a valid identification (passport or driverslicense).

The check on the corona admission ticket takes place before the exhibition entrance. To promote the flow rate, we would like to ask you to keep the corona proof in combination with a valid proof of identity at hand. More information about the Corona Check App can be found at www.coronacheck.nl. For any questions you can contact the helpdesk on 0800-1421 (free).

The check applies to everyone who visits the fair:

– Visitors (over 12 years old)

– Exhibitors (stand crew)

– Easyfairs employees

No, because the occupancy rate is low during those moments and keeping 1,5 meters away is very well possible. In addition, the open doors provide extra air circulation.

Yes, the Corona Check takes place every event day. Even if you leave the exhibition floor in the meantime, a new check is needed.

The safety of visitors, exhibitors and our own staff is our top priority. We are very happy that we can open our doors again, but at the same time we want to keep the risk of infections as low as possible. In addition, a negative test is only valid for 24 hours. That is why it has been decided to set up a permanent corona check that must be completed at all times before entering the exhibition floor. We hope for your understanding of this security measure.

No, it’s not possible to visit the event without a valid Covid-pass.

Yes, visitors from the age of 14 are obliged to show identification (passport of drivers license) alongside of their Covid-pass.

The Dutch government will review the measures on January 14th.

Sanitizer stations will be placed at various points at the event so that you can disinfect your hands as desired. Furthermore, there will be the possibility to disinfect hands at every stand. In addition, we have further optimized our air treatment systems in the past period. This helps to limit the transmission of respiratory infections, such as COVID-19. In addition, there is now an even healthier and more pleasant indoor climate in our exhibition halls.

The role of a trade fair is very important in many ways. There are multiple sectors in the Netherlands who have experienced negative consequences of the pandemic. The Dutch government therefore sees the trade fairs as the drivers of the recovery of the economy. This is where supply and demand come together, tomorrow’s innovations are presented and Dutch business meets. There are industries who will realize up to 40% of their annual sales on a trade fair. Also for other service providers a trade fair is indispensable, for example stand builders. The local and regional economy also benefits when a trade fair or event takes place, such as hotels, taxi services and restaurants.

Recently we have conducted a large-scale survey among visitors to trade fairs taking place this autumn. In total over 6.000 respondents participated on this survey. This showed that 90% of the visitors plan to visit trade fairs again this autumn.

Easyfairs follows the measures taken by the Dutch government. European countries have agreed that every country must have a system for a Covid-pass. They call this the EU Digital Corona Certificate (EU DCC). International exhibitors and visitors can enter the exhibition floor with their covid certificate.

 

The quarantine rules for traveling to the Netherlands have changed as of September 22. Vaccinated travelers from the United States, United Kingdom or other very high-risk areas no longer need to be quarantined. Prepare your trip well and check www.wijsopreis.nl and www.reizentijdenscorona.nl before departure.

No, in case of cancellation by the customer, the cancellation conditions as included in the relevant agreement apply. If Easyfairs is not allowed to organize the trade fair due to a force majeure situation, Easyfairs will examine on a case-by-case basis whether the relevant event can be moved to a new date.
