Bouncing Back Together
We have really enjoyed getting back to running in-person events again. Starting off with a cracking Kent Construction EXPO in October, we ran a series of incredibly successful and sold out events up to the end of 2021. We all know what can be achieved online but it’s clearly not the same as pressing the flesh, meeting eyeball to eyeball and really connecting with new customers and existing customers that you deal with on a daily basis. By bringing key business communities back together in real life, we are helping the UK economy bounce back in a way that only live events can deliver.
This does not mean we will be throwing caution to the wind and we will continue to manage our events with a range of common sense Covid-secure measures, tailoring our approach to each event in direct response to the prevailing conditions. In this way, you can be assured of a carefully controlled environment, where the safety of our delegates, exhibitors, speakers, staff and contractors will always be our No.1 priority.

Some of the main precautions we will continue to implement include:
- Hand sanitiser stations throughout every event
- Increased social distancing in seminar rooms and exhibition spaces
- Contactless registration and seminar room scanning
- Additional ventilation in all areas
- Working closely with our accommodation providers to ensure the highest levels of cleaning in all event Hotels. Plus ensuring the availability of, or offering details of local parking, should you choose to drive.
Using the latest scientific data and health advice, we will be taking an event-by-event view of the need for face masks and other precautions, driven entirely by the current level of risk at the time. This may require attendees to show evidence of their vaccination status and/or a negative Covid test before being allowed to participate.
Colour-coded lanyards may also be used to indicate the status and individual preferences of participants, eg. whether they are comfortable interacting closely with other attendees or not.
The recent Business Event Pilot events resulted in zero cases of Covid-19 and in a recent poll of our previous delegates, 96% stated they that would feel comfortable attending physical events that follow Government guidance. Revolution sees this as positive evidence that the business community is keen to resume normal service as soon as possible and that it views business events as a cornerstone of the economic recovery.
