Throughout this past year Northstar Travel Media have been focused on planning a successful return to events but doing so in a way that manages the risk of COVID‐19 tranmission. We have remained in close contact with the member associations in our industry such as the Association of Event Organisers (AEO) to ensure we are at the forefront of any guidance ensuring we implement the latest information.

To establish and guide our control measures Northstar Travel Media has conducted a full and thorough COVID‐19 risk assessment. This looks at the disease in its entirety whilst considering the specifics of the event, setting out measures that are practical and realistic.

We want to ensure that we give everybody the confidence that they can visit the show safely, ensure that exhibitors still receive ROI on their investment and ensure visitors have a meaningful, comfortable and COVID‐19 Secure experience.

In line with the latest government and industry guidance, we are following the All Secure Standard which looks at the following key areas in our response and actions to COVID‐19:

Some key measures we are implementing for the show are highlighted below which forms a part of the overall plan that we, as organisers, are putting into effect

  1. We will position numerous handwashing stations around the venue to enable all visitors to increase the frequency with which they are able to wash their hands.
  2. Face coverings are mandatory within the halls.
  3. The venue will be conducting deep cleaning measures throughout the event.
  4. There will be an increased cleaning regime which will be undertaken by the in‐house cleaning team.
  5. We are reducing the capacity of the halls during the open period to be satisfied that everybody has the ability to social distance where necessary.
  6. Northstar Travel Media has ensured there are large gangways running through the show to create as much distance and open space for everybody within the hall.
  7. Signage will be increased around the show to highlight social distancing and promote good hygiene.
  8. This will be supported by regular public address announcements to encourage handwashing and maintaining social distancing.
  9. We are looking to avoid queuing at the entry points by encouraging pre‐registration.
  10. The entry areas will be more defined and managed so that where there is queuing it is conducted in a socially distanced manner.
  11. The catering offer at the event will be increased to accommodate more people and avoid queuing.
  12. All exhibitors have been asked to achieve COVID‐19 Secure status in line with government guidance.
  13. Any necessary PPE has been identified and will be worn by those staff members that require it.
  14. Where possible through the event we are aiming to be as contactless as possible.
  15. If a person does present with COVID symptoms at one of our events, we have plans in place to protect them and others from the risk of transmission.
