Most frequently asked questions about Transport Compleet at Evenementenhal Gorinchem

In the press conference of 18 December, the cabinet announced that the Netherlands will go into lockdown from Sunday 19 December until at least Friday 14 January 2022. In order to immediately slow down the spread of the Omikron variant, the number of contact moments must be further limited. For this reason, throughput locations such as our Event Hall have been closed. This lockdown does not currently affect the passage of Transport Compleet on 20 June 2023 in Gorinchem. Below we answer the most common questions.

Will Transport Compleet Gorinchem go ahead?

The current lockdown applies until at least Friday 14 January 2022. Transport Compleet Gorinchem does not take place in this period and therefore the current lockdown has no influence on the continuation of Transport Compleet Gorinchem. The situation will be reassessed by the government on Friday 14 January 2022 on the basis of an OMT recommendation. As soon as more is known, we will let you know.

The Corona Check takes place before the entrance.

The Corona Check applies to everyone who visits the event:

  • Visitors (from the age of 13 on)
  • Exhibitors (stand crew)

No, because the occupancy rate is low during those moments. In addition, the open doors provide extra air circulation.

Yes, the Corona Check takes place every event day. Even if you leave the exhibition floor in the meantime, a new check is needed.

The safety of our visitors, exhibitors and own staff is our highest priority. A negative test result is only valid for 24 hours, that’s why we check everyone every day.

Yes, visitors from the age of 13 need to show a covid-pass and a valid identity card (can also be a passport or drivers license).

Sanitizer stations will be placed at various points on the exhibition floor, so that you can disinfect hands according to your wishes. Furthermore, there will be the possibility to disinfect hands at every stand. In addition, we have further optimized our air treatment systems, which helps limits the transmission of respiratory infections such as COVID-19. Plus, there is now an even healthier and more pleasant indoor climate in our exhibition halls.


The quarantine rules for traveling to the Netherlands have changed as of September 22. Vaccinated travelers from the United States, United Kingdom or other very high-risk areas no longer need to be quarantined. Prepare your trip well and check and before departure.

The role of a tarde show is very important in many ways. There are several sectors in the Netherlands that have experienced the negative consequences of the coronapandemic. The Dutch government therefore sees trade fairs as the drivers for the recovery of the economy. This is where supply and demand come together, tomorrow’s innovations are presented and the Dutch business community meets. There are industries that realise up to 40 per cent of their annual turnover at fairs. Trade fairs are also indispensable for other service providers, such as stand builders. The local and regional economy also benefits when a trade fair or event takes place, such as hotels, taxi services and restaurants.

Recently we have conducted a large-scale survey among visitors to trade shows taking place this autumn. In total over 6.000 respondents participated on this survey. This showed that 90% of the visitors plan to visit trade shows again this autumn.

Easyfairs Netherlands follow the measures taken by the government.

No, in case of cancellation by the customer, the cancellation conditions as included in the relevant agreement apply. If Easyfairs is not allowed to organize the trade show due to a force majeure situation, Easyfairs will examine on a case-by-case basis whether the relevant event can be moved to a new date.
