Etiom deemed Good To Go

Etiom continues to carry out internal assessments on its working practises on its events, to ensure that every precaution possible is taken to make its events as safe and "COVID-compliant" as possible.

We are pleased to confirm that we have been assessed and have been allocated the COVID-19 Industry Standard for events. We have confirmed that we will continue to follow government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, ensuring processes are in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social/physical distancing.

In addition, and as announced in our previous blog post on 1 February 2021, if it is deemed that Etiom events cannot take place on advice from the UK governments, our Ticket and Booking Guarantee means you can transfer your ticket / booking to the following year or receive a full refund.

Although we remain positive that things will look a little more normal by Summer 2021, we continue to work hard on our indoor and outdoor events, so that when the time is right for us to stage them, we can do so in full compliance with UK and Scottish government guidelines and where they remain a safe and enjoyable place to be.

Our open air markets can continue so long as they are selling essential items only. We shall continue to:-

  • Spread our markets out so that each space has considerable circulation space where shoppers can socially distance with ease;
  • Common areas will be regularly cleaned, although these will be kept to a minimum during the strictist lockdown (ie seating removed, all touch points minimised, contactless registration);
  • Hand sanitising stations at entry and exit points, as well as on exhibitor stands;
  • A team of Covid marshals reminding visitors to adhere to social distancing rules
  • Test & Trace procedures run in accordance with NHS guidelines.

We will continue to expand the offering at our outdoor markets as legislation is eased.
