Safe Setup for the Registration Area

This advice comes from one of the meetings industry's top décor firms.

Cort Events' rendering of what a meeting's or trade show's safe registration area should look like.

For many of the attendees at your next meeting, it will be the first time in more than a year they've gathered indoors with a large group of people — and the registration counter will be the first thing they see. Make them feel secure. Cort Events, experts at furniture arranging for meetings, has some suggestions for setting up the safest registration area possible:

  • Create individual check-in stations as opposed to one long running counter to facilitate clear lines.
  • Each individual station should have designated staff to reduce cross-movement.
  • Provide countertop plexiglass dividers with an opening slot for materials.
  • Equip all staff with gloves and masks.
  • Place floor markers to show guests where they should appropriately stand to maintain a 6-foot distance.
  • Use stanchions and prominent signage to reinforce parameters.
  • Place hand-sanitizing stations conveniently near trash cans.
