HES code requirement for participation in exhibitions

Accordingly, the entrance and exit points of exhibitions have been rearranged. Body temperature is checked at exhibition entrances. External air is used in ventilation systems and the air inside is kept clean permanently. The number of people at the exhibition venue in the same period of time is restricted. Exhibitors, visitors, and staff members are requested to share their HES codes at exhibition entrances.
