Security at IFEMA
All the parades will be carried out under an ambitious security protocol implemented by IFEMA to guarantee Hall 14.1 as a safe space. This protocol brings together all the necessary measures to organize the flow of attendees and their mobility; establish capacity controls; interpersonal distances; the elimination of direct contact through digital registration; taking body temperature; the widening of spaces and the incorporation of the latest technologies for the counting of attendees, and especially for the constant renewal of air in pavilions, among other innovations in this area.
