The wearing of masks at our physical events will not be mandatory.

Social Distancing

There will not be a requirement for social distancing however we will have introduced a number of things at the event to help minimise risk.

Hand Sanitiser

Hand sanitiser will be installed in certain areas at the event.

Reception & Lanyards

The reception and check-in process has been simplified to reduce touch-points with step by step signs confirming the process on arrival. You will simply utilise an iPad to check-in which will print a badge off for you, before you get to choose a lanyard of choice.

Green – you’re happy to shake hands and have social contact, Orange – you’re happy to network but be more cautious and observe space, Red – you want to reduce social contact and networking as much as possible.

Other Safety Information

Depending on the venue we may also have sign-age for certain rights of way and doors may be left open to leave less touch-points across the venue including on doors/toilets.

We will have designated areas for drinks/rubbish to ensure these aren’t left around the venue, and all lunch will be provided in pre-prepared bags.

Hybrid Events

To ensure those who are uncertain about attending physical events can still gain access you will have the option of purchasing a physical or virtual ticket. The virtual ticket will enable you to view the event sessions, ask questions to the speakers, and private message/request video calls with those attendees who’re at the event physically.
