The LEC is committed to receiving you in optimal sanitary conditions.
1) Presentation of the COVID (CH) / PASS Sanitaire (FR) certificate at the general exhibition reception
All persons (including exhibitors, suppliers, organisers, etc.) entering the hall (including during assembly) must present an identity document and a valid covid certificate / health pass (paper or digital). This measure is a real guarantee of control, security and well-being for all.
As a reminder, a valid certificate/pass must include one of the following proofs:
- Vaccination certificate (full schedule / 2 vaccinations) .
- Negative antigenic test less than 48 hours old
- Negative PCR test less than 72 hours old
- Proof of recovery of Covid-19 dated at least 15 days and less than 6 months ago
Please note: Self-tests are not accepted.
You can download the COVID apps:
A free testing centre (antigenic) is available at Geneva airport (Terminal T2): www.m3-test.ch. An online reservation is required, the waiting time can be substantial (between the test, results ...). The tests on the day of publication of this webpage (23/08/2021) are free of charge. The free of charge status is likely to evolve according to the decisions and announcements of the confederation.
As the test centre is completely independent of the LEC organisation, visitors should contact 3M directly if they have any doubts or questions.
2) Contact LESS
This year, the catalogue and guidebook will be entirely paperless. You can download them by scanning QR codes. In partnership with the company Deeplink, an AI will answer all your questions directly on your phone, a real time assistant on the LEC!
We strongly recommend online registration with 'print@home', which allows you to enter the exhibition directly without having to queue at the exhibition reception desk (excluding Covid control) >>. Register online
3) Masks, arrangements, devices and social distancing
The introduction of the Covid control system at the entrance to the hall does not impose any major restrictions on the exhibition, but in consultation with palexpo we wanted to make some adjustments, recommendations :
- All participants are scanned in (as in previous years) and out (new this year) so that accurate tracking can be done
- Gel dispensers are available at the entrance and at the exhibition
- Wearing a mask is still strongly recommended
- The conference rooms have been 'ventilated' with fewer seats and an opening to the exhibition area
- Social distancing is still strongly recommended
- Hall 4 is 21 m high, so 'natural' ventilation is used
- Ventilation will be by open circuit
- The circulation aisles are wide enough to avoid excessive flows
- A special entry/exit system has been set up
- In addition to routine cleaning, a disinfection brigade is responsible for the continuous treatment of places and objects with intense contact (toilets, railings, handles, touch screens, etc.). Particular attention is paid to catering areas. Closed bins are provided in various places for masks and tissues. The frequency of emptying the bins is increased.
- Catering: The surface temperature of hot food is monitored to ensure that it is above 70°C to allow thermal eradication of the virus. Frequent cleaning of counter surfaces, cash registers and high-contact areas is carried out.
