Your safety at the event

We want everyone attending the conference to feel comfortable and able to enjoy being in the company of industry colleagues. We are working with the venue to ensure a safe and responsible event for all delegates and staff. No event is risk-free, however. Staff and delegates have a shared responsibility to ensure the event is as safe as we can make it.

Although there is no government requirement, we kindly request the following:

Before arrival

Be aware of signs and symptoms of Covid-19. Refer to the NHS website if you are unsure of the latest list of symptoms. Do not attend the event if you have symptoms of Covid-19 or if you are currently testing positive for Covid-19.

At the event

Face coverings:
There is no longer a legal requirement to wear a face covering. However, the government does provide advice on when to consider wearing a face covering.

Government advice on when to consider wearing a face covering:

  • when you are coming into close contact with someone at higher risk of becoming seriously unwell from Covid-19 or other respiratory infections
  • when Covid-19 rates are high and you will be in close contact with other people, such as in crowded and enclosed spaces
  • when there are a lot of respiratory viruses circulating, such as in winter, and you will be in close contact with other people in crowded and enclosed spaces.

Handwashing and hand sanitisers:
Following the basic rules of good hygiene will help to protect you and others from Covid-19 as well as many other common infections:

  • cover your nose and mouth when you cough and sneeze
  • wash your hands regularly.

Hand sanitiser will be provided throughout the venue.

We thank you in advance for your diligence in this matter.

Exhibitor information

We recommend, for environmental and Covid-19 reasons, that paper materials, promotional giveaways, food items and displays which encourage physical interaction or excessive waste are avoided. Consider the use of digital tools such as QR codes, and other alternative means of capturing and sharing information.
