Six steps to a safer exhibition

The organisers of the upcoming CRE National 2021 have spent several months working on the safety of visitors in light of Covid-19. 

‘While we can’t wait to get back to meeting in person, we are aware the virus is still with us and people will, rightly, want assurances of their safety,’ said event director Brett Pitchfork.

Six measures already taken include: 

  • An exhibition spread over two floors to allow wider aisles for social distancing
  • No carpets in the main halls because vinyl floors can be cleaned more easily
  • Hand sanitisers placed at strategic points plus dispensers on each stand
  • Mask-wearing recommended but not demanded of all attendees
  • An air-circulation system at maximum, ensuring 100% fresh air from outside pumped into the halls throughout each day
  • All venue catering cash-free (card and contactless transactions only)

The government has not required exhibition venues to introduce an NHS Covid pass scheme so this will not be implemented at CRE National 2021.

‘We know our visitors well and they will be conscious of a shared responsibility to ensure each other’s safety,’ said Brett. ‘We expect them to respond positively to these measures.’
