What safety precautions are being taken by staff and exhibitors at the show?

Our staff and exhibitors are committed to keeping you safe during your visit to the show. A number of measures are in place to help ensure that the only thing you take home from the show are great memories and loads of bargains.

  • We’ll be cleaning high touch-point areas – including all catering areas and toilets – frequently
  • Exhibitors will clean their stands more frequently – including all exhibits, tills, door handles and more
  • Our waste contractor will be safely collecting any COVID waste, such as masks and cleaning cloths, and disposing of it safely off-site
  • We’re asking exhibitors to consider adding extra doors or windows, or sides that can roll up to their stands to improve the natural airflow
  • After the show closes, public areas, toilets and catering areas will have a deep clean and we’ll be doing this every day
