Keeping you Safe

Your safety is paramount.

We are taking steps to ensure the event is as safe as possible given the COVID-19 pandemic.

We want you to have a great day out and enjoy your visit with confidence knowing we have the safety of our visitors, exhibitors, and colleagues as our highest priority.

We will operate under the appropriate Government’s Roadmap Guidelines* and the Event industry’s All Secure Standard – a comprehensive set of guidelines to ensure our events are operating under COVID-19 secure measures.

All event attendees will be kept up to date with our approach to COVID-19 mitigation measures once they have registered.

How we will keep you safe

In accordance with Government Guidelines* operating at the time, we will be limiting the overall number of attendees at each of the individual events. This is currently set at a maximum of 1,000 attendees at any one time, which is significantly below the 10,000-person capacity of Manchester Central.

To enable COVID-19 tracing (if this becomes appropriate), entry will be subject to pre-registration.

All attendees and exhibitors will also be required to undertake a lateral flow test (within 48hours) prior to attending the event. The results of this test need to be reported at and sight of your confirmatory email/text will be required to enter the event. Lateral flow tests are widely available from local test centres, pharmacies, your employer, or via the post. Please see to obtain further information.

Alternatively, individuals who have received both vaccine doses at least 14 days before the event, will be able to gain access by showing proof of full vaccination. To view and share proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status, download the NHS App:

Please note that we will not be recording any of your personal health information.
