Event Partners Ltd Position Re: COVID-19


The Advanced Materials Show and co-located Ceramics UK are scheduled to take place 2 – 3 December 2020, NAEC Stoneleigh, UK.

The health, safety and wellbeing of our exhibitors, visitors, speakers, contractors and staff attending in December is our main priority. With this in mind, we will be collaborating with the venue and our suppliers over the coming months, to ensure The Advanced Materials Show and co-located Ceramics UK proceed as planned, in the safest possible environment.

We continue to closely monitor the evolving COVID-19 situation; we will be taking guidance and advice into consideration from WHO (World Health Organisation) and the UK Government during our planning process, as well as following best practises set out by the events industry. Whilst it is not clear at this stage what measures will be required in December, we expect some of the following may be applicable/ implemented:

  • Personnel and Personal Safety
    • Exhibitors encouraged to make hand sanitiser and tissues readily available to their staff
    • Hand sanitiser, tissues etc distributed to visitors upon entry
  • Physical Distancing
    • Space regulations indicated in high traffic public spaces (e.g. entrance spaces, catering areas, toilets etc)
  • Increased Health and Safety Measures
    • Exhibitors encouraged to clean their stands regularly
    • Frequent cleaning, sanitation and waste collection in commonly used areas
    • Hand washing/ sanitising stations regularly positioned throughout the show
    • Well ventilated halls and communal areas
  • Crowd Control
    • Flow management in high traffic areas, limiting capacities where necessary
    • Online registration and badge printing at home actively encouraged, to facilitate fast-track entry

As we draw closer to the event, the Covid-secure measures we’ll be implementing to keep our exhibitors, visitors, speakers, contractors and staff safe will be communicated in full. We want to ensure that the industry as a whole retains the confidence they have in us, as the organisers, to deliver a first-class, global celebration in the heart of UK manufacturing, without compromise.
