Conferences & Roundtables: Event Safety & COVID-19
At Inspired Business Media, the safety and wellbeing of every person that attends our events is our top priority. We would like to reassure all of our attendees that we are paying close attention to the latest information on COVID-19 and will continue to follow all official Public Health advice as the situation unfolds.
Although large-scale international events are being cancelled, our intimate events format is considered low-risk under current guidance. Currently, our conferences are going ahead as planned with a clear action plan in place to mitigate risks.
Inspired conferences are invitation-only, allowing us to control our audience and stay in close contact with every person planning to attend. As our events are held on the outskirts of cities, guests are able to drive and park at the venues rather than use public transport.
All of our venues have measures in place to ensure the health and safety of our guests is paramount. Hand sanitiser and hand wash will be readily available to every event attendee and we encourage all guests to follow the most up-to-date healthcare advice, including regular hand washing and covering their mouths and noses with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. We are also encouraging attendees to avoid handshakes and other physical contact as an extra precaution.
We will continue to communicate with every attendee in the weeks leading up to an event to ensure that they are feeling well and have not visited any Category 1 or Category 2 countries within the last four weeks.
Live workshop streaming and virtual meetings will be put in place for anyone unable to attend the conference in person.
We have a team in place that is closely monitoring any developments and will continue to provide regular updates on any changes.
