It is the first time in its 24-year history when BIOT was held online. According to the head of ASIZ Vladimir Kotov, the decision to cancel the "offline" forum, dictated by quarantine restrictions, was made by the organizing committee of the forum two months before the start. Literally on the fly, the whole BIOT concept had to be changed, logistics rebuilt, and contracts with exhibitors revised. Despite this, BIOT took place and gathered a huge audience. The online format made the forum accessible to the most remote corners of Russia and the rest of the world. The number of registered participants has doubled the last year's figures for the offline format.

Guests and participants, including politicians, economists, scientists, businessmen, were provided with maximum opportunities for communication, both in personal virtual offices and within the business program as well.

Chairman of the BIOT Organizing Committee, Minister of Labor and Social Protection Anton Kotyakov, whose department traditionally, together with ASIZ, served as an organizer, noted that the international specialized exhibition BIOT is the largest event in Eastern Europe and the CIS in the field of occupational safety and health, where he presents the most relevant agenda.

Four days of sessions, conferences, round tables and discussion panels allowed to discuss the widest and most topical range of problems. The most relevant topics were the large-scale digitalization of labor protection processes, smart PPE, significant changes in the field of industrial safety, efficiency of labor processes in the context of COVID-19, as well as the interaction of the PPE industry with state regulatory and controlling authorities.

The official partner of BIOT -2020, “Gazprom Gazobezopasnost”, shared its unique experience in organizing and carrying out work to prevent injuries, fires, accidents at industry enterprises and performing a pool of special works to prevent and eliminate emissions, open gas and oil gushers from wells, including fields on the continental shelf and conducting gas-explosive works.

«The SHVABE» holding (part of the state corporation «Rostec») presented products for institutions equipping that have proven themselves effectively in the context of the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic: disinfecting portals, thermal imagers, air purifiers, hand sanitizer dispensers, non-contact thermometers.  

Another official partner of the exhibition, the «SOYUZSPETSODEZHDA» company, within the framework of the BIOT-2020, placed on its stand new collections of modern multifunctional workwear and protective footwear, suitable for both work and everyday life, as well as PPE.

Official BIOT-2020 partners “TMK Group” presented in the framework of the BIOT-2020 business forum the report "ESG. Experience of TMK Group”, which summarized the knowledge gained in the Company on reducing the level of injuries, improving production standards and involving employees in work to reduce safety risks at workplaces.

The importance of the BIOT forum was noted by the head of the Russian government Mikhail Mishustin in his greeting to the participants: “You represent different countries, companies, enterprises and organizations, but there is one thing to unite all of you - a sincere desire to make sure that nothing threatens people's health at work. Today, when the whole world is fighting a new coronavirus infection, labor safety issues require greater attention and manufacturers and suppliers of PPE are of particular importance. It is vitally important that you were able to rebuild and increase the volume of production quickly, that will help to save thousands of lives. "
