COVID-19 certificate to Messukeskus Helsinki as the first event organiser in the Nordic countries


As the first Nordic event organiser, Messukeskus Helsinki, Expo and Convention Centre has received a COVID-19 certificate in recognition of exemplary work for Covid-19 safety. The certificate has been awarded by SAFE Asset Group, an international certification and consulting company specialising in the security of commercial premises.

SAFE Asset Group conducted an extensive audit for the certificate, which verified Messukeskus’ safety policies and guidelines. The certificate is a recognition that the instructions, the hygiene of the premises and equipment, the safety expertise of the staff and other measures related to the control of COVID-19 have been thoroughly taken care of.

-The health of our clients and staff is of primary importance to us. We monitor closely the instructions of the authorities and invest firmly and proactively in safety at events. You can visit Messukeskus’ events with full confidence, says Anni Vepsäläinen, Managing Director of Messukeskus.

Built for large public events, Messukeskus has a smooth entrance with automatic gates, the possibility of electronic payment, service points protected with plexiglass and contact free taps. Entrance routes and service points are equipped with hand disinfection automats and safety distance markings. Face masks and other hygiene equipment are available for visitors. Efficient air conditioning and in some place up to 14 meters high halls improve safety.

A year ago, Messukeskus was the first trade fair organiser in Finland to publish comprehensive instructions related to Covid-19 safety and to train its entire staff in advanced hygiene and safety practices. The halls were harnessed as testing and vaccination sites in the fight against COVID-19. Health safety is part of Messukeskus’ sustainability work. The Sustainability Report 2020 provides a broader overview of Messukeskus’ other sustainability goals and work.
