The health and safety of our Symposium attendees is our first priority. We have put in place the below on-site safety measures to reduce the risk of the transmission of communicable diseases for in-person attendees and will actively monitor the situation and review measures leading up to and during the Symposium.


On-site safety measures include: 

  • Please do not come on site if you have Covid symptoms.  

  • Free rapid lateral flow antigen tests will be available at Reception for delegates. 

  • Masks are not mandatory. Disposable masks are available at the registration desk should you wish to wear one

  • The auditorium is well ventilated with mechanical ventilation supplied with 100% fresh air (3,600 air changes per hour).

  • We have large open dedicated indoor spaces for eating/drinking and the area has a very large volume due to above average ceiling heights (3.3-5.9m) and is mechanically ventilated with 100% fresh air. There is also plenty of outdoor tables and seating that delegates are welcome to use.

  • All rooms hosting the Symposium will have 100% fresh air mechanical ventilation.

  • Hand sanitising stations and wipes will be available throughout the building. 

  • Tables, lecterns and microphones will be cleaned between sessions. 

  • Professional caterers who follow strict food safety and anti-covid safety processes will provide all food and beverages for the Symposium.

  • Additional professional cleaning of the Symposium areas between days.
