To use The Expo Group’s Crowd Density Calculator, enter your gross square footage, add any percentage desired for equipment and enter your preferred distancing level. Industry guidelines released recommend 28 square feet per person. This is almost double fire code regulations and thereby reduces capacity by more than 50%.
After that, be sure to add in exhibitor personnel and any staff that will be in the space to achieve your Attendee Capacity level. The Crowd Density Calculator input numbers can be adjusted as you work in different spaces. If the result calculation shows you do not have enough space, consider staggered entry procedures for attendees at ticketed times they choose or by simply scheduling alphabetically by name.
The Expo Group’s Crowd Density Calculator is also available as a widget to be added to your site for use by your partners.
