In light of the Governments recent announcement we are very excited that events have been given the green light from 19th July. Our planning remains to work closely with the relevant Government bodies to ensure we are covid compliant and the health and safety of all our visitors, exhibitors and staff will always be our priority. Please note the following guidelines we will take to encourage safety at the event:

  • There will be increased regularity in our cleaning regime in our toilets and public areas
  • Hand sanitisers will be available in public areas and we encourage our exhibitors to have them available on their stands
  • While face masks are no longer mandatory and are a personal choice, we will advise visitors to wear them in areas where crowds may gather
  • We will encourage visitors to continue to be mindful of social distancing where possible
  • Our final precautions for the event will depend on the Government advice at the time and we will continue to update our measures in-line with the latest recommendation.
