Keeping You Safe
In line with latest government guidance and the Association of Event Organisers, we have taken the decision to verify attendee Covid-19 status on arrival at the event which will include visitors, exhibitors, contractors, venue and organiser staff.
This means attendees will need to demonstrate proof of COVID-19 status for entry to the event. This will need to be one of the following:
Additional measures in place:
- Proof of completion of a full course of vaccination via the NHS COVID Pass or equivalent for international visitors
- Proof of a negative PCR or Lateral Flow Test result taken within 48hrs of arrival
30% reduced visitor capacity has been applied to all sessions to provide ample space for visitors to experience the event and for exhibitors to operate. Festival visitor session times will be staggered based upon morning, afternoon and early evening sessions on our public days and morning and afternoon sessions on our industry days.
In line with the Government guidance, it is no longer mandatory to wear a mask or face covering in all settings. This means that visitors can use their discretion when in quiet areas of the venue, but we ask that they carry a mask with at all times and be courteous to those around them by wearing a mask in areas that may become busy. We highly recommend for exhibitors and staff to wear a mask throughout the festival.
Cleaning & Venue Hygiene:
The facilities team continue to work onsite with a robust cleaning schedule in place. All high volume touch points such as door handles, push plates, handrails and lift call points are being sanitised on a regular basis. Deep cleaning and enhanced sanitation will be in place before, during and after each festival day.
Hand Sanitiser Stations:
Hand Sanitiser will be available at the entrance and around the building.
The festival will operate a cashless contact payment policy across the festival.
