Onsite Advice & Guidance
Dear Delegates, Speakers & Exhibitors,
The health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors and staff will always be our number one priority. We are working closely with our venue to put measures in place for our Autumn events that currently include:
- Public Health messaging displayed and shared before and during the event.
- Increased hygiene, sanitisation, availability of disinfectants onsite at the venue across all public areas and high-volume touchpoints such as:
- Hand sanitiser dispensers in toilets within the venue;
- Attendees strongly encouraged to disinfect their hands in the registration area before entering the event;
- Hand sanitiser wipes/dispensers available for all attendees in public health areas at venue;
- Extra cleaning staff & increased routine checks.
- Strict food hygiene rules are already in place, but extra vigilance will be taken at the catering points at the event.
- Our floorplans and session rooms will take social distancing into consideration with their layouts.
- Awareness and training of all staff and suppliers on standard personal preventative measures, e.g. personal hygiene, frequency of use of sanitising/disinfection products, etc.
We also recommend that you follow the precautions set out by the World Health Organisation when on site:
• Regularly & thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based sanitiser or wash them with soap & water.
Why? Washing your hands with soap & water or using alcohol-based sanitiser (hand rub) kills viruses that may be on your hands.
• Maintain at least 2 metres (6 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
Why? When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.
• Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.
Why? Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.
• Make sure you (and the people around you) follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth & nose with a bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze and disposing of the tissue quickly.
Why? Droplets spread virus. By following good respiratory hygiene you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.
• Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority.
Why? National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on the situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also protect you and help prevent spread of viruses and other infections.
If there is anything we can do to support you at the event, please do get in touch.
