Before the event
Arrange your testing in advance*
Plan ahead to make sure you know where you going and what you need to do in order to contribute to the safety and awareness of yourself and other attendees.
In line with manufacturing best practice, all attendees will need to demonstrate proof of COVID-19 status on arrival at the event. You will not be admitted if you can’t show one of the following:
- A negative lateral flow result
- A negative PCR result
The negative lateral flow test must be reported to the NHS website or app (separate to the track and trace app) and the result shown via the NHS app SMS text or email. We recommend that you bring additional tests with you when you travel.
*Subject to change based on government guidelines
Stay home if you are unwell
If you are suffering from any fever or other covid symptoms before the event, then please make sure you stay at home and follow the current government guidance.
Give yourself plenty of time to register in advance online and make sure you have your QR code ready when you arrive to the venue – touchless registration is in place.
During the event
Your safety is of utmost importance to us, so during the event we ask that you follow the below requirements in order to collaboratively do what you can to help minimise any risk.
Lanyard/badge or wristband colour coding
We will be providing colour coded wristbands for our attendees to communicate how comfortable they are with interaction with others in response to COVID-19 lifted restrictions.
- Green – I’m happy to mix and am open to contact
- Amber – Happy to fist bump but let’s be careful
- Red – I’d like to talk but do not feel comfortable touching, please give me some distance
We do encourage you to wear face masks, but as per government advice these are no longer compulsory. We do however, urge you to wear a mask when in high density areas and whilst queueing for food.
Hand sanitisers will be readily available throughout the venue. We encourage you to also bring our own sanitiser to apply when you enter and leave any theatres, exhibitor stands or features. Please continue to follow guidance and wash your hands frequently.
Due to the lifted restrictions, there will be normal seating within the theatres of the event but we will also be providing more socially distanced areas for those who would be more comfortable with this. We encourage you to please maintain a safe distance from other attendees throughout the event.
Food and Beverage
Catering facilities will be available onsite, please note all payments onsite are CASHLESS.
To keep a fresh air circulation moving during the event, there will be an increase in ventilation in line with government advice.
We will uphold the highest standards of cleaning throughout the event and ask that you contribute to this by being mindful of what you dispose of and where.
