All eyes are on Targi Kielce; not only do the exhibition industry insiders but also a multitude of expo-participating companies watch the first large-scale trade show held after the economic lockdown restrictions have been lifted. The International Defence Industry Exhibition (MSPO) is ranked third in Europe, just after Paris and London trade shows. None of Europe’s defence and military trade shows have been held this year with lockdowns causing a similar situation in all economic sectors. The expo organisers’ determination and strenuous efforts culminated in success, with MSPO bringing together 185 companies from 15 countries. The trade show is an evident impulse for the whole exhibition sector at the time to recover from COVID hibernation. The Expo, which has been the showcase for the elite of rocket weapons manufacturers from Raytheon to Lockheed Martin and MBDA, has been organised with strict observance of sanitary rules and regulations.
A better tool designed to boost economic recovery is hard to find because trade shows bring together various industries with the Kielce exhibition and congress centre offering maximum public-health safety and security level – all the more reasons to join the Expo. Targi Kielce has gone an extra mile to be ready for MSPO and all other autumn events with the centre’s entrances equipped with non-contact temperature screening as well as automatic disinfection and decontamination booths.
In addition to the standard security measures such as mouth and nose covering, hands disinfection complemented with surfaces, handles, doors, mirrors cleaning and disinfection, the expo centre has resolved to increase the distance between the expo stands and install plexiglass security dividers. All people going into the exhibition area fill in the epidemiological survey upon entering the facility.
