This Motor Expo has adopted universal infection preventive measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 wherein all persons involved in hosting the event must have received 2 vaccine doses and taken an ATK (Antigen Test Kit) test, instead of an RT-PCR (Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction) test onsite before entering the venue without restriction, while visitors must either have received 2 vaccine doses or have taken an ATK test on site. The implementation of strict COVID-19 preventive measures in conformity with governmental policy ensured a lower risk of contamination. All visitors were required to wear face masks always while visiting the show and sterilize their hands with hand sanitizer before entering a showcased vehicle.
The Motor Expo Online Platform also was organized in parallel with the actual motor show via the "motorexpo.co.th" website. ( https://ve.motorexpo.co.th/ )
