Coronavirus (COVID-19) measures

As organizer of Materials+Eurofinish+Surface, we, Mikrocentrum, VOM and Vereniging ION, are closely following the developments of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) as the regulations and restrictions can change from day to day and from week to week. We monitor the advice given by the Dutch RIVM and the Belgian FOD Volksgezondheid on a daily basis and take appropriate measures, also in consultation with partners, to avoid risks. The wellbeing of our visitors is key. We would like to share the measurements we have taken. For now, Materials+Eurofinish+Surface 2020 will continue, but of course we will keep a close eye on the situation.

Materials+Eurofinish+Surface takes place in the NH Conference Center Koningshof in Veldhoven (NL). We are in close contact with this location and take appropriate measures in consultation with them. This includes placing instruction and warning signs and placing (if available) disinfectant hand gel.

Have you recently visited a risk area, do you have symptoms or have you had contact with a corona patient?

As organization, we ask that persons who recently visited risk areas or who have (or had recently) symptoms of disease or who have come into contact with Corona infected persons, to not visit to Materials+Eurofinish+Surface.
