County Wedding Events

COVID-19

Following the latest Government announcement that business events and exhibitions can restart from 1st October 2020, County Wedding Events wanted to highlight how we plan to adhere to the COVID-19 safety measures for our planned Autumn shows.

September 2020 events:

For any wedding shows that currently have a September 2020 event date, unfortunately these do not fall within the new Government's guidelines so we are in the process of postponing these events, working on securing new dates and will contact all exhibitors in due course when we have more information.

October 2020 events:

The Government has permitted that business events and conferences can resume from 1st October 2020 and pilot tests of events are taking place over the coming weeks in cooperation with industry bodies to help set the criteria for holding such events.

For our wedding shows that are due to take place this October, these will go ahead with County Wedding Events adhering to all of The Government guidelines to ensure the safety of staff, exhibitors and visitors attending our events.

New guidance outlines how the nation's conference and event venues can get back up and running safely which will see the return of the sector worth approximately £32.6 billion to the UK each year.

The guidance makes clear that the following measures should be considered to allow for safe resumption of business events and conferences:

  • • Attendees will need to pre-book and pre-register to attend events
  • • Contactless registration systems will be introduced at venues to reduce waiting times and limit contact between organisers and guests
  • • A digital first approach will be adopted to eliminate the need for physical badges and lanyards
  • • Paper handouts and gifts will no longer be offered
  • • Entrance to event or conference spaces will be staggered to reduce queuing and overall capacity will be limited to ensure social distancing can be maintained
  • • Events will be planned around one way systems for visitors
  • • Spaces between exhibition booths will be increased and aisles widened to achieve social distancing requirements
  • • All venues will also have enhanced cleaning procedures, with hand washing and sanitising facilities at frequent intervals

 

We will update our County Wedding Events procedures and protocols following this guidance in due course.
