Safety Message

  • Key Safety Points

    Safety is our top priority. As part of global events company Reed Exhibitions, we’ve been working hard to develop the necessary procedures to protect the safety of our visitors, partners, speakers and staff, and create an enjoyable environment for everyone.

    Organised conferences and events are a far cry from ‘mass gathering’ events. They are well ordered market places for conducting business and commerce in a setting where we are able to affect conditions with confidence. In the meantime, we will continue to work on building a safe, engaging experience for everyone onsite.

    We have created a specialist report based on the direction and guidance from relevant authorities across the globe. Our teams will be conducting thorough risk assessments throughout the run-up to the show and we will be communicating regularly through email, social media and our website.

    Here is a summary of some key measures we are putting in place. Please download the full report for more detailed information and feel free to reach out to our team if you have any questions!

    • Introducing physical barriers
    • Enhanced floor management and stewarding aimed at controlling footfall within the venue itself
    • Encouraging seating only over standing only and removing / reducing those areas where attendees congregate en masse
    • One-way crowd management and physical distancing floor markers
    • Insisting on pre-registration
    • Extending opening hours whilst staggering admission and departure times
    • Readily accessible sanitising stations
    • Contactless payments
    • Imposing firm ‘no handshake’ policies etc.
    • Strengthening in-hours and out-of-hours cleaning and disinfection regimes – including ‘deep cleaning’ – paying special attention to high-touch surfaces in line with local and domestic standards
