CAEM Weekly Update – August 11

Key Developments


Industry Roundtable Discussion

Following the Industry Roundtable Discussion on July 29, 2020, with MPP Deepak Anand and the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development, MPP Anand reiterated his commitment to working with the CAEM Exposition Recovery Taskforce Members to advocate for the sector’s reopening.

As recommended by MPP Anand, CAEM has revised the Ontario Safe Reopening Guidelines to incorporate additional measures and protocols on food and beverage operations within exhibitions. As well, a section on contingency planning has been added. This section outlines procedures to follow should a participant have COVID-19 symptoms, or should a confirmed case be identified at or during an exhibition.

CAEM looks forward to continuing this work with MPP Anand in order to pave the way for the industry’s safe and responsible reopening.
