COVID-19 Prevention

In 2020, ExpoForum obtained a Safe Travels SPb QR code. Consistently, ExpoForum complies with every safety standard and in no time acts up to Rospotrebnadzor’s recommendations and requirements.

The company introduced must-have and state-of-the-art solutions to ensure compliance with safe activity standards:

  • Special buffer zones were arranged at the venues, and vending machines with personal protection means were installed;
  • The centre is equipped with advanced no-contact thermal imaging systems that are used to take temperature for visitors of ExpoForum Convention and Exhibition Centre, visitors that have fever will be denied access to the Centre premises;
  • The ventilation system was upgraded;
  • No-contact sanitizers are installed throughout the venue;
  • Convention halls are equipped with air recirculators.

Participants are seated in compliance with safe distance keeping requirements. Shuttle buses that as usually travel from the Moskovskaya Metro Station to ExpoForum and back are additionally disinfected after every run.

Delegates will only be admitted to the SPIGF venue in case they present one of the following documents:

  1. Negative PCR test made no earlier than three calendar days before the start of the event;
  2. COVID-19 vaccination passport (or COVID-19 vaccination QR code);
  3. COVID-19 immunity passport (or COVID-19 immunity QR code).

Non-residence participants may provide any of the above mentioned documents issued by an authorized medical organisation.

These requirements are set in accordance with the latest amendments dated 24.08.2021 to the Decree of the Government of St. Petersburg No. 121 from March 13, 2020.

During the whole period of the event all guests must observe safety measures, use protection equipment (masks, sanitizers) and keep social distance.

The St. Petersburg International Gas Forum managers do their best to make the participants comfortable and safe in the course of the event.
