Back in December 2020, the National Headquarters for Coronavirus Control allowed the country’s exhibition events to be held physically in full compliance with health and safety measures.
The National Coronavirus Control Headquarters announced health conditions and protocols for holding new exhibitions, and events would be able to operate only if these protocols are observed.
The said entity also requires the exhibition centers to control the national ID of the visitors to prevent the entry of people who have been checked positive for Covid-19.
According to Iran International Exhibitions Company (IIEC), the number of exhibitions in the previous Iranian calendar year (ended on March 20) declined by 40 percent due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.
