COVID-19 Secure Event

CloserStill ConnectSafely

CloserStill Media is founded on bringing people together, building relationships and supporting communities, it is in everything we do. We’re on a mission. Undaunted, unbowed and unswervingly dedicated to bringing our great event industry back. Back together again. Back as one. And back to a place where we do business as we’re supposed to. Face to face. We’ve languished too long staring into the abyss (and at our our screens). It’s time for meaningful contact. And so at CloserStill, we’re committed to a realistic, achievable roadmap to get us there.

Our Guidelines are based around four cornerstones with All Secure Guidelines - we will continually monitor and update guidelines in accordance to the All Secure Guidelines.

Pre-show Communication

We will continue to communicate our procedures and mitigation measures all Exhibitors, Partners and Delegates via our Website, Email and Event Signage.

CloserStill and our partner venues have appointed and trained personnel to monitor and control the COVID mitigation measures.

Risk Assessment

CSM will produce the risk assessment in partnership with our venues, which will be the key document to determine the measures that will we put in place for the safe return to face to face events.

In your event Risk Assessment, it is now compulsory that you/ your contractor consider transmission of COVID-19 as a new risk and the control measures that will be implemented to minimise this risk.

Upon arrival:

EVERYONE entering the show will need to demonstrate proof of COVID-19 status for entry to the event. This will need to be one of the following: 

  • Proof of completion of a full course of vaccination two weeks prior to arrival.
  • Proof of a Negative Lateral Flow Test result, taken within 48hrs of arrival. (Retaken and reported every 72hrs).
  • Proof of natural immunity shown by a positive PCR test result for COVID-19, lasting for 180 days from the date of the positive test and following completion of the self-isolation period.

Protect yourself and others 

CloserStill will ensure all events comply with the All Secure standards, to achieve this, we will implement:

  • We will be implementing a ‘Mask Friendly’ policy however we encourage Mask wearing in enclosed spaces.
  • Minimising touch points within the event
  • Cash-free payments
  • Enhanced signage with key information and social distance guidance.
  • All seating around the event will also increase to allow for additional space. 

We are also working in conjunction with our venues to ensure enhanced cleaning services are carried out throughout the duration of the show. Hand sanitising units will be installed in all high touch areas. Our partners venues have state of the art ventilation systems.
