An event focused on biosafety, which was created to support Spain’s economic reactivation and the necessary adaptation of companies and businesses for protection against COVID 

Designed to bring together the offer and demand for biosafety protection and to provide all of the useful information on protocols and measures that the involved sectors are developing  

With an innovative and trailblazing hybrid format (online + in-person) that offers the power of Artificial Intelligence to identify the needs and solutions, and the effectiveness of personal meetings 

After its important role during the health crisis, IFEMA now places at the service of the Spanish business sector, from its essential speciality area, an event designed to contribute to the recovery of economic activity under biosafe conditions. This is a monographic within SICUR -the major International Comprehensive Security and Safety Trade Fair that IFEMA has been organising for the last 40 years-, this time with a special edition dedicated to the solutions, equipment, products and suppliers, as well as the protocols and measures necessary to adapt buildings, factories, offices, workshops and all types of establishments and businesses to the current situation.

SICUR SPECIAL COVID, will be held in an innovative and trailblazing hybrid format (online + in-person), that offers the power of Artificial Intelligence to identify the needs and solutions, and the effectiveness of personal meetings, and will run from the 1 July until the 30 September.

With this initiative, IFEMA wishes to place its capability to summon the thousands of companies with which it has ongoing relations through the various trade fairs and events, at the disposal of companies and organisations that provide the information and solutions to guarantee biosafety conditions, and thus contribute towards the return of activities. As the largest trade fair operator in Spain and one of the main ones in Europe, IFEMA reaches practically all sectors of the Spanish economy, represented at its trade fairs. Last year it hosted almost 900 events, with 33,292 participating companies and 4,323,775 visitors. In addition to this wide scope is its ample experience with SICUR, regarding Comprehensive Security as a whole, and specifically Workplace Health and Safety.

· A hybrid event

With its hybrid format – online and in-person - SICUR SPECIAL COVID will put suppliers in contact with clients and will allow for meetings to be held virtually and/or in-person. The online platform containing Artificial Intelligence will enable searches and will propose contacts with matching interests; it will offer to generate dialogues, “one-to-one” meetings -both virtual and in -person- and online networking meetings, as well as hosting online training areas. In-person meetings will take place at IFEMA, on the 14 and 15 July 2020, and they will provide the chance to see products directly, in a safe environment, and to strengthen business relations at a time when “face-to-face” meetings are especially valued.

SICUR SPECIAL COVID will offer content designed with the assistance of public administrations and industry associations and organisations, to inform and answer questions on the safety protocols that apply to each activity.

The IFEMA trade fair facilities are now implementing all of the protocols based on the criteria defined by the health authorities and main international public and industry organisations, in order to offer areas that guarantee safety, control and health preservation of the various groups participating in the events, as well as on matters of hygiene, quality and environmental safety of the facilities.
