Bouncing Back Together
After sixteen months of uncertainty, Revolution welcomes the Government’s announcement that the UK will move to Step 4 of its plan to lift Covid-19 measures from Monday 19th July.
We are greatly looking forward to returning to normal this autumn and to be running our events in person again from September onwards. By bringing key business communities back together in real life, we hope to help 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 operate with a range of Covid-secure measures in place, 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, 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 without wearing a face mask.
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.
