Event Precautions regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Please note that Etiom is taking all sensible precautions to mitigate any transmittal effects of the Coronavirus. These steps include visible signage at the entrance and availability of hand sanitisers, tissues and bins at the Event Reception. In addition to this, all event goers will be required to wear a facemask at all times. The Venue toilets will be checked regularly to ensure plenty availability of additional hand sanitising equipment.

We ask all exhibitors to contribute towards these efforts by having available at their stands additional sanitising materials. We also ask that all exhibitors take a sensible view on greeting visitors to their stands, opting for alternatives to a hand shake for example. We advise all exhibitors to make themselves familiar with good sensible precautions at this LINK.

If you believe that any visitor or fellow exhibitor may be exhibiting signs of coronavirus, please make the Event Organiser or a member of the Venue staff aware of this. The symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • a cough
  • a high temperature
  • shortness of breath
  • Loss of taste

Please remember that these symptoms do not necessarily mean that any person has the illness. So common sense (and sensitivity) must be applied when alerting anyone to this. 

So here are some basic Do's and Don'ts ...

The Do's

  • wear a facemask at all times

  • wash your hands with soap and water often during the days of the event. Do this for at least 20 seconds

  • always wash your hands before you stop for a break or something to eat

  • use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available

  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze

  • put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterwards

  • try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell

The Dont's

  • do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
