New Preventive Measures

Combining Heart and Science to Ensure Your Safety

NEW! Disinfection Enhancement In Action– Intelligent Sterilisation Robot

To further strengthen the protection of visitors and staff, Intelligent Sterilisation Robot (ISR) is deployed at AsiaWorld-Expo for comprehensive disinfection. The cutting-edge robot is equipped with multiple disinfection modes, featuring ultraviolet light steriliser, 360-degree disinfectant spray-heads and air filtration (HEPA), which can sterilise up to 99.99% of bacteria . Its 360-degree autonomous navigation technology helps to reach blind spots and ensure complete coverage. The ISR will be widely used to sterilise the facilities in AWE, keeping the air and object surfaces fully sanitised.

As a world-class exhibition, convention and events venue, AsiaWorld-Expo always puts the safety of our visitors and staff as our top priority. In order to prevent the spread of diseases, we used different types of innovative disinfection technology in accordance with the characteristics of the venue and different activity scenarios, by using “BioEm Air Sanitising and Purifying Technology” in crowded environments and applying "Aegis Intelligence Technology" to strengthen environmental sanitation, so as to provide a safe and reliable venue for events. 

Introduction of the world’s first 3-in-1 disinfection installation

AsiaWorld-Expo is the first in the MICE industry to introduce “CLeanTech”, an innovative three-in-one disinfection installation combining a suite of technologies including BioEm Air Sanitising and Purifying technology, Aegis Intelligence and negative room pressure design. Subject to organisers’ needs and event scale, such device can be deployed at upcoming major trade exhibitions and conventions. Visitors will be admitted through the device prior entering to event halls. The device door will be opened automatically when visitors passed the built-in temperature checking. After entering CLeanTech, it will help to sanitise outfits and carry-on items of visitors in just 12 seconds and keep them safe.

Adoption of air sanitising and purifying technology

To safeguard visitors’ health and allow staff to work at ease in a hygienic environment, BioEm Air Coolers, using patented air sanitising and purifying liquid with natural ingredients, are now deployed in AWE office to eliminate bacteria and virus in the air and harmful substances attached on objects. Such practice will be extended to Organiser Offices in accordance to users’ need.

Application of "Aegis Intelligence" to sanitise venue facilities

We have also introduced "Aegis Intelligence" for facilities that visitors often come into contact with.  Aegis Intelligence is remarkable for its physical puncture sterilisation and photocatalyst disinfection and is used to purify venue facilities such as on doors and door handles at major entrances, escalator handrails, washrooms and chairs in restaurant. It can eliminate potentially dangerous microbes on objects with a long durability of up to 12 months. These safeguards help protect our frontline staff and reduce the need for frequent manual work, while also reducing reliance on traditional sanitiser which is now in high demand worldwide.

Elimination of bacteria on the uniforms of frontline staff

In addition to the protection of visitors, AsiaWorld-Expo also cares for the health and safety of the employees and will gradually apply "Aegis Intelligence" to the uniforms of frontline staff.

Other preventive measures: 

  • Provision of hand sanitizer stations at main Entrances, Public Circulated Area, Customer Service Counter and Washrooms,
  • Handrails, doors and handles, lift’s keypads, etc. are disinfected by diluted bleach (1:49) and disinfectant agent every hour,
  • Washrooms are disinfected by diluted bleach (1:49) and disinfectant agent every hour. Disposable hand towels and sanitising liquid soap are available at Washrooms,
  • Rubbish bins are disinfected by diluted bleach (1:49) and disinfectant agent every three hour,
  • With liaison with organiser, temperature measurements are conducted at control points,
  • Staff are required to measure their body temperature daily prior to reporting to duty and wear surgical masks during work,
  • Suspension of overseas & Mainland business trip for AWE Staff,
  • AWE Staff, Organiser's staff, Contractors or any of their family members and close contacts who in the past 14 days had been to countries or regions with quarantine orders issued by Hong Kong’s Department of Health, should inform AWE and self-isolated for 14 days,
  • Organiser’s staff and Contractors are required to measure their body temperature, complete the Declaration Form prior to entering the venue and wear surgical masks during work,
  • Advices from the Centre for Health Protection are enacted and on display at main Entrances.

AsiaWorld-Expo is closely monitoring the situation and will follow the guidelines promulgated by Hong Kong’s Centre for Health Protection for appropriate preventive measures.
