World-leading venue management company and the UK’s leading live events business, the NEC Group, has announced its new four-part blueprint, designed to provide a framework for running organised gatherings in safe and controlled environments as the UK examines lockdown release measures.
This document outlines how this blueprint will support the live events industry in re-starting the UK economy in the latter stages of COVID-19. Taking into consideration key government and NHS principles, the events industry is ready to face this challenge and ensure the safety of customers, visitors and partners. Following road-testing with key organisers and promoters, we are confident that by embedding this blueprint, the Group has created a sustainable solution.
The blueprint has been built upon four core principles:
Implement measures to minimise the causation of transmission
Introduce strict social distancing protocols
Utilise data and technology to support contact tracing and testing
Focus protocols and communications to reinforce behavioural change
