In line with latest government guidance and the Association of Event Organisers World Retail Congress has taken the decision to verify attendee COVID-19 status on arrival.
This means all attendees will need to demonstrate proof of COVID-19 status for entry to the event. This will need to be one of the following:
- Proof of completion of a full course of vaccination two weeks prior to arrival.
- Proof of a Negative Lateral Flow Test result, taken within 48hrs of arrival.
- Proof of natural immunity shown by a positive PCR test result for COVID-19, lasting for 180 days from the date of the positive test and following completion of the self-isolation period.
You can create and present your NHS COVID Pass via the NHS App (including a downloadable pdf), on the NHS website or as a paper letter, which can be requested through the NHS website or by ringing 119.
If you are visiting from the EU, we will be accepting EU digital Covid certificates.
Verification areas will be clearly signposted on arrival at the venue. Once verified, you will be given a wrist band, and allowed access inside the venue.
Whilst it's not mandatory if you are double vaccinated, we would still kindly ask as an extra measure of precaution that you take a lateral flow test 24 hours before the event takes place to further enhance the safety of yourself and other attendees.
