There are still tickets available for PI LIVE London 2021, which is taking place on 19-20 October at Old Billingsgate, London. It’s set to be an event which will be full of people, all keen to educate themselves at the insightful sessions which will be taking place, and excited to mingle and network with industry peers once again.
However, there may be slight anxiety from certain attendees about the measures which will be in place to keep them safe. Here’s a run through of the systems and rules which have been implemented by the team:
The event organisers want to reassure attendees that they’re working hard to ensure everyone is, and feels, safe at the show this October.
They will therefore require all attendees to provide proof of a negative Lateral Flow Test prior to gaining entry.
They are also closely monitoring government guidance and will adapt plans as necessary. The guidance below is therefore subject to change.
The PI LIVE website outlines processes regarding testing for both UK-based and International attendees.
COVID-19 safety measures
In addition to the above, to keep all attendees as safe and comfortable as possible, the following will be implemented:
- There will be a medic onsite with two independent treatment zones within the venue: one for general first aid and a secondary COVID-19 quarantine zone with specific treatment procedures. Medics will have the recommended PPE for themselves and will follow the current government guidance at the time of the event.
- Water points throughout the venue with non-contact water coolers on the mezzanine level.
- The number of registration terminals has been doubled and QR codes will be utilised on tickets to print badges.
- The team continues to work with the venue to supply hand sanitiser stations, increased ventilation and increased cleaning throughout show hours.
It’s important to consider other attendees personal space when navigating the event, especially those that may be wearing a facemask and whilst queuing.
Attendees are encouraged to be fully vaccinated (both jabs done at least 14 days prior to the event) where possible. If you’re in the UK you can schedule your vaccination online.
What if you’re feeling unwell?
Do not attend the event if you have tested positive for COVID-19, have any symptoms of COVID-19 or are required to self isolate. (Because you have tested positive for COVID-19, are told to by NHS Test and Trace or the NHS COVID-19 app, as a condition of entry to the UK, or someone you live with has tested positive or has symptoms).
If you are unable to attend the event as you’ve tested positive for COVID-19 and have proof via a PCR test then you may either; transfer your ticket to a colleague, transfer it to a virtual ticket and we will refund the difference or roll over your ticket to 2022.
