We have worked alongside the AEV (Association of Event Venues) to develop the All Secure Standard, an industry wide standard for the safe return of organised events. In addition, we have set out some guiding principles which will enable events at ExCeL to run safely.
Produced in partnership with the organiser the risk assessment will be a key document to determine the measures that will need to be put in place for your event.
To minimise queuing and contact during registration, all delegates, visitors, and exhibitor stand crew are advised to pre-register to attend an event. Proof of double vaccination, Covid-19 antibodies, or a negative lateral flow test (within the last 48-hours) will be required.
We expect that anyone working on the build-up or breakdown of an event will be asked to pre-register before arriving onsite to declare they are fit and healthy to work. Proof of double vaccination, Covid-19 anitbodies, or a negative lateral flow test (within the last 48-hours) will be required to gain entry. We recommend that anyone working within the venue wears a face covering in the common areas, unless they are exempt.
With multiple, distinct entrances to the venue, we can manage arrivals safely and securely, in line with the latest government guidance. We recommend that everyone wears a face covering inside the venue, unless they are exempt.
Ventilation will be increased, improving fresh air circulation in line with latest CIBSE (Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers) guidance and recommendations.
Hospitality, stand catering and retail services will be provided in line with latest government guidance, working closely with ExCeL London Hospitality and our boulevard retailers.
The ExCeL Cleaning Team have been trained to deliver new cleaning procedures. This includes ensuring all touch points, as well as seating in conference and meeting areas, are regularly wiped with chlorine-based cleaning fluid. We have installed a Nimlok Entry Management System (NEMS) at the entrances of all bathrooms, located along the boulevard, to assist with managing the flow of people.
Hand sanitisers will be provided throughout the public areas of the venue. There is an expectation that all organisers and exhibitors will provide their own sanitiser for their offices, in-hall aisles and stands.
Our employees have participated in a Covid-19 training programme, instructing them how to keep themselves and others safe. Anyone working onsite will be provided with a briefing to ensure they understand our code of conduct.
These are unprecedented times and whilst every effort is being taken to protect the wellbeing of our guests, everyone should inform themselves of their own responsibilities before they visit. For further information please visit: www.gov.uk/coronavirus
