Covid Safe

In the UK the current guidance is that masks are optional. We have not had any word from the venue as to onsite policy. We advise at his stage that you carry a mask with you.

To aid with social distancing we have asked the venue to set up tables as opposed to our normal theatre style layout.

FAQ
Do you have a risk assessment template you would like us to adhere to? 

We do not, all we ask is that you have the necessary corporate and public liability insurances in place and your electrical items are safety checked.

Would you please also send me a copy of your own risk assessment for the event?

Our agreement is with the venue directly and the requirement is for our public liability insurance to be in place. There is also a daily health and safety briefing.

I have read the Covid Safe section on your website but wondered if there was any update from the venue re mask wearing and what the policy will be regarding:
  • offering promotional materials,
  • exchanging business cards,
  • will hand-shaking be discouraged, etc?

The industry norm now appears to be ‘fist bumping’. We would suggest that promotional material be left on your table and delegates can decide if they will gather material. We also suggest that each vendor has some hand sanitisation gel on their tables.
