The National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham, host venue of Naidex, has said the situation surrounding events is “business as usual.”
This is despite the UK risk level from coronavirus having been increased from low to moderate.
In a statement put out by the NEC, it described how it was monitoring the situation but as things stand, events would go ahead as planned.
It said: “Whilst the UK risk level of Coronavirus has been increased from low to moderate, the risk to individuals has not changed at this stage and it remains low.
“We continue to follow advice from the World Health Organisation and Public Health England, as well as that of Local Government.
“Precautionary measures are in place and we are monitoring the situation as it develops, but it currently remains business as usual and all events are going ahead as planned.
Concluding: “Staff, exhibitors and visitors are being encouraged to maintain good hand, respiratory and personal hygiene.”
Last week, AMP reported on Naidex wanting to build further on four decades of success with this year’s show, the 46th edition of the event.
Organisers say that from physical and digital accessibility, to mobility and inclusion, the event has everything covered.
