With regular stories and updates about COVID-19 Coronavirus in the news, we hope that the following information for visitors and exhibitors to Food Integrity is useful, but please contact us if you have any other queries or concerns.
We strongly urge our exhibitors and visitors to refer to the guidelines and protocols as suggested by the World Health Organisation and the UK public health authorities regarding the virus.
Food Integrity will run on Wednesday 17 & Thursday 18 March 2021
We are monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation carefully and regularly, and the health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors and staff is our number one priority.
Our operations team are working closely with Twickenham Stadium to ensure that all possible precautions are in place throughout the duration of the event including build and breakdown.
Those who wish to participate in our events and who are not impacted by travel restrictions are free to do so. Travel advice and entry guidelines varies from country to country. Our event attendees are encouraged to check the latest travel advice and entry guidelines for the UK before making arrangements.
However, if you decide not to travel, or are unable to travel due to an embargo by your employer or country-wide restrictions, then you will still be liable to the relevant cancellation charges as set out in our delegate and sponsor terms and conditions. In these circumstances you should refer to your own, or your employer’s, travel insurance for details about potential compensation.
How can Exhibitors and Visitors help and protect themselves?
In addition to the good hygiene advice from the World Health Organisation and the UK public health authorities regarding the virus, you may wish to follow these sensible precautions:
- You may prefer, and should expect that others, may want to avoid shaking hands.
- You may wish to carry a personal supply of hand sanitiser, tissues and wipes, in and outside of the event.
- Exhibitors may wish to book an enhanced cleaning/sanitisation regime for your stand and may want to consider having extra sanitising gel/wipes for buyers coming to your stand.
