GL Events awarded the "Safe & Clean" label

Euroexpo Lyon Gl Event Safe and Clean

After receiving the label for its French activities at the end of 2020, GL Events wanted to put in place a process aimed at labelling all of its activities around the world, and harmonise the health protocols for the provision of services, hospitality and event organisation, regardless of the host country.

9 countries were selected to represent their activities: Belgium, Italy, Japan, Chile, Brazil, United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, South Africa and Hungary. After multiple audits, some of which were conducted remotely due to travel restrictions, GL Events was able to obtain the label for all of its international activities!

The project

"We chose Apave for their pragmatic, comprehensive approach and their ability to deploy in France and internationally. With their support, we hope to obtain certification for all Group entities to highlight the health safety based-approach initiated by the Group at the beginning of the pandemic, the health protocols implemented and to guarantee the same safety standards to our various stakeholders and employees, regardless of their location. 

The health crisis has shown that there is no substitute for human encounters when building bonds and sharing emotions. That is why we have implemented specific protocols for each event, to reassure our clients and allow people to meet again" Olivier Ferraton, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of GL Events. 

Through rigorous sanitary practices, GL Events are able to guarantee the operation of prestigious venues such as Aichi Sky Expo in Japan, Eurexpo Lyon, the Square in Brussels, Hungexpo in Hungary, Oval in Turin, Sao Paulo Expo and many others...
Welcoming exhibitors, visitors and participants in optimal conditions to allow sanitary safety is a real opportunity to ensure quality service and events.
