Communicating advice to all attendees to adopt a ‘no-handshake policy’.
New realities are making us to adopt new behaviour for instance “no-handshake” or even “no touch” policies. That also makes us rethink the realities about handling the business meeting in person or exchanging physical business cards.
We believe that such a view on minimisation of physical contacts and increased measures on cleaning and disinfection should not be in any negative influence to your business. We have started Tabee in a strong believe that we can help you to protect trees. And nowadays we also believe that using Tabee App we can help you to maximise sanitary measures. Simply scann business cards — removing any need to collect them in your pocket.
