Our measures for safe and controlled event environments 

We live and breathe live events but ensuring the safety and wellbeing of our customers, organisers and staff is always our top priority.


Our customers

Our 'Venue Protect' measures have been developed to aid the reopening of events post COVID-19, so whether you are a customer or organiser, you can be confident that we are operating safe and controlled event environments.

Aligned with those of the wider events industry, this 4-step approach incorporates a strict checklist of operational measures that will be adapted as necessary to reflect the latest Government guidelines.

The measures compromise of:


1. Supporting Testing and Tracing

Using data and technology to help ensure audiences are known where possible and free from symptoms.


2. Social distancing measures

Providing space for the safe movement of people around the venue.


3. Enhanced venue sanitisation

Increased cleaning of high contact areas within the venue.


4. Communication

Clear and helpful guidelines and updates to ensure safe compliance of these principles.

We continue to work closely with event organisers and partners to ensure that we can deliver safe events, recognising that each event has differing requirements.

Our staff 

It's our fantastic teams across the NEC Group that brings our vision to life, and it is of paramount importance that they too not only understand the measures but are comfortable and well equipped to deliver them. Staff will complete additional training and be provided with a range of return to work material. These will detail the measures we're taking front of house, but also behind the scenes and in the NEC Group offices to keep them safe too.

We are committed to working together to protect us all.
