Following the announcement by the UK Government yesterday, we can still confirm that we’re planning on running the conference face to face. There will also be the option to attend virtually with over half of the sessions being streamed live to online attendees. The risk assessment and COVID-19 safety measures that we’re putting in place can be found at the bottom of this news item.
We’d like to make you aware that we can run conferences and dinners as of now; as within the roadmap step 3 plan of the UK Government which we are now in (the following statement can be found here
“Conference centres and exhibition halls will also be able to open for conferences, exhibitions, tradeshows, and private dining and banqueting events (subject to the capacity limits set out below).
Indoor events and remaining outdoor events, such as elite sport events, business events, cinemas and live performance events are also permitted.
Attendance at these events is restricted to 50% of capacity up to 1,000 people for indoor events, and 50% of capacity up to 4,000 people for outdoor events.
For outdoor events taking place in venues with seated capacity of over 16,000, attendance of up to 25% of seated capacity, or 10,000 seated people, whichever is lowest, is permitted. There is further guidance on organising events during COVID-19
Both outdoor and indoor gatherings or events, organised by a business, charity, public body or similar organisation, can be organised, subject to specific conditions: that they comply with COVID-secure guidance including taking reasonable steps to limit the risk of transmission, complete a related risk assessment; and ensure that those attending do not mix beyond what is permitted by the social contact limits (unless another exemption exists, such as for organised sport or exercise, supervised activities for children or a significant life event).”
We look forward to seeing you in July!
