Dubai has been open and welcoming back tourists and visitors from 7 July 2020. The Emirate has put precautionary procedures into place for the safety of all visitors.

ATTENDING MIDDLE EAST COATING SHOW

At dmg events, our commitment to delivering exceptional live in-person events that support economic growth and recovery, will be reinforced by the dmg events All Secure protocol designed to protect our colleagues, exhibitors, visitors, delegates and contractors.

What is the dmg events All Secure protocol?

Our All Secure protocol comprises four key cornerstones, providing assurance and confidence that all our events have health and safety as our number one priority: physical distancing, cleaning & hygiene, protect & detect, and communication.

These standards will work in conjunction with advice from Public Health Authorities and venues to ensure our events are operating in accordance with local rules as well as meeting international standards.
