Safe & Secure

Last updated 23/08/21

Connecting our customers and communities safely

Your health, safety and comfort have been, and continue to be our priority. We are dedicated to delivering safe and secure events

In light of this, we have developed our industry-leading Safe & Secure standards. We've worked closely with our industry association, the AEO (Association of Event Organisers) in order to establish the guidance which has been approved by UK government. This has allowed us to confidently launch our comprehensive Safe & Secure guidelines to deliver health and safety standards that put the minds of our community at ease. Please also look out for our Safe & Secure stamp. Wherever you see this logo, digitally or onsite, it confirms that we have ensured the highest health and safety standards across the event.


IMPORTANT UPDATE:

Scoop x Pure has taken the decision to verify attendee COVID-19 status on arrival at the event (to include visitors, exhibitors, contractors, venue and organiser staff).

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.

For further details on how to prove your COVID status and FAQs please click here.

Verification areas will be clearly signposted on arrival at the venue. Once verified, your badge will allow you access to the show.

  • We will operate a wrist band system to validate your status. This wristband will be valid for 48hrs before you will need to be verified again on arrival. If your method of proof is a negative lateral flow test please remember to bring the correct number of tests with you for the duration of your stay.

 We have made the decision to implement COVID-19 status checks, even though this is not currently mandated within government guidelines, as the evidence suggests that this is the best way for us to reduce the risk of transmission within the event itself.

Putting these checks in place add an additional layer of reassurance for all attendees once they are inside the event.

 

Safe & Secure Guidance:

The risk of COVID-19 transmission will never fully be eliminated and so the advice below should be considered when planning your time at the event.

 

Mask wearing: We are a mask friendly event.  

It is no longer mandatory to wear masks, however, we do encourage all attendees to consider wearing masks, especially when in enclosed or crowded spaces. 

Cleaning and Personal Hygiene

  • Please carry your own hand sanitiser and apply when you enter and leave exhibitor stands, features and theatres.  There will be hand sanitising stations available on-site in high traffic areas.
  • We have asked designers to ensure a deeper clean before, during and after the show opens each day; paying particular attention to high traffic touchpoints and consider visible cleaning logs.
  • Along with the Old Truman Brewery, we are conducting a thorough, enhanced cleaning regime of all public areas and features prior to show opening and during show open periods.
 

Code of Conduct

  • When walking around the event, we ask you to please remember that as we come back together some people will be more comfortable in the environment than others. As a result:
  • Please give people space when you are walking past them.
  • Check before initiating personal contact (consider elbow bumps rather than handshakes or hugs).
  • As the industry builds itself back, remember different pressures people may be facing, please be kind to each other.
  • Consider arranging meetings in advance at less busy times.

After the event

Track & Trace

We are confident the measures that we and the venue will be putting in place will make our event as safe as possible. Please ensure you give accurate information throughout the registration process.

The relevant local authorities will contact you if there’s a need to update you regarding track and trace.
