COVID Safety Guidelines

As you are aware, government restrictions have now been lifted but we are closely following their guidelines and recommendations to make sure the Anglia Business Exhibition is as safe as possible.

Although these guidelines are not enforceable by law, we politely ask that you act responsibly and with respect for your own and other people’s safety.

Test and Trace – this is no longer a legal requirement but a QR code will be displayed at Trinity Park for those wishing to check in using the NHS COVID-19 app.

Lateral Flow Tests – we will not ask for proof of a negative LFT or vaccination status but we would encourage all attendees to take a lateral flow test within 48 hours before attending ABE.

Masks - although the legal requirement to wear a face covering in England ended on 19 July, the government expects and recommends that people continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces. We appreciate that ABE is a long day but we encourage you to wear a mask indoors if you are able to, particularly during the busier periods in the day.

Close Contact – please be respectful of other people and use spatial awareness. If an area of the exhibition centre is busy for example, maybe visit another area and return to that stand a bit later when there is more room. Exchanging business cards is a personal choice but you could also exchange details without physical contact such as via text or an app if you prefer.

Hygiene – there will be wipes and sanitiser available throughout the exhibition centre and hand washing facilities in the toilets. If you are an exhibitor or sponsor, please ensure that any surfaces or items on your stand that are being touched by visitors are wiped with anti-bacterial wipes regularly.

Covid Symptoms – if you are showing any of the main symptoms of COVID-19, please do not attend. The symptoms are a high temperature, a new, continuous cough or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.

Ventilation – we will be keeping doors and windows open as much as possible to keep the venue well ventilated. Weather in September can be unpredictable so if it is a chilly day, please bring a jacket/jumper etc in case you need it.

Outside Seating – there will be seating available in the courtyard area between the exhibition centre and Trinity Rooms so that you can hold one to one meetings/have lunch etc out there (weather permitting!).

Risk Assessments (exhibitors and sponsors only) – all of our exhibitors and sponsors are required to complete a risk assessment for their stand. If you are an exhibitor or sponsor, please make sure your risk assessment includes Covid safety.

Thank you for helping us to keep our event safe.

Please note that any public place where people are present carries a risk of exposure to COVID-19 and by attending our event, attendees are voluntarily acknowledging and accepting this risk. ISSBA and the ABE team will be working closely with Trinity Park as well as following government guidelines to ensure that procedures are in place at ABE2021 to keep everyone involved with the event as safe as possible. By attending ABE2021, you agree to adhere to all rules, procedures and safety advice before, during and after the event.
