  1. All exhibitors will be provided with their own Anti-Bacterial Hand Sanitizers to be used throughout the day.
  2. We would advise against all handshakes, hugging and kissing at the expos.
  3. We will have alternatives to the speed networking sessions.
  4. We will not be handing out delegate bags.
  5. We would encourage business cards to be placed in bowls and not handed over to exhibitors directly.
  6. We will be providing allocated Time Slots for Delegates to arrive at the event (must be pre-booked)
  7. Free Masks will be provided for every guest as they arrive
  8. Workshops / Keynote Rooms will be spaced out for social distancing

Regardless of what stage you are at in your business journey post COVID-19, there is something for everyone at this year’s expo. Last year a visitor attended, networked, and made a significant connection which resulted in £98,000 of new business.
