The namaste is the best replacement for handshake, no issue of soft or strong handshake, equally respectfull to all.

When SARS was the problem many Chinese readopted the old pre communist folded hands and bow rather than the handshake.

I can understand the reluctance to attend, having been to a lot of similar events they are a perfect venue for the transmission of diseases.

Learn from the Japanese: Start bowing politely.
