1) All attendees must be prepared to show proof of either
a) NHS COVID Pass via the NHS App (NB This is different to the NHS COVID-19 Test and Trace app).It is advised individuals apply no later than 48 hours before attending their event to allow for the application to be processed in time.
b) Proof of immunity shown by a positive PCR test result for COVID-19, lasting for 180 days from the date of the positive test and following completion of the self-isolation period.
c) Lateral flow or PCR negative test results text or e-mail, received within 72 hours prior to attending the event. However, we would encourage visitors to complete their test within 48 hours as some organisers/promoters may request the shorter timeframe.

|While face masks will no longer be mandatory, we encourage visitors, exhibitors and staff to take personal responsibility and to wear a face-covering in any situation which is crowded or while in close proximity to other people, including in workshops or seminar theatres. We do however recognise that there are circumstances preventing people from wearing a face covering and, being mindful and respectful of this, staff will not challenge or ask for evidence from visitors who advise that they cannot wear a face covering or who make the personal choice not to. We hope that all will be equally respectful.|
|All attendees will be asked to print their badges at home in order to minimise queues and contact, in the registration areas.|
|The NEC mechanical ventilation is controlled by the NEC’s Building Management Systems to monitor air quality and other parameters. In line with current Government guidance, the NEC has recommissioned the ventilation plant to maximise fresh air rates and where appropriate upgraded the filters to NHS hospital standards.|

|Hand sanitiser and/or handwashing facilities will be provided throughout the venue. We recommend you bring your own supply as well.|
