What to expect when attending an FSE event

This tells you what you should expect from us, and what we ask of you, when attending any FSE tradeshow

Our aim is to: Make each event as safe as we possibly can, make everyone attending feel safe and comfortable whist assessing risks and putting in place practical measures to reduce them.

Our attendee code –

Undertake your own health risk assessment. Consider risks to your own health by attending and what you are or are not comfortable with.

Check for symptoms of COVID 19 before travelling to the event . You should be checking if you, or anyone you live with or work with, has symptoms (even if they are mild) you should not attend, and should follow the guidance on testing and self isolation.

Do not attend the event if you need to self isolate. If have been asked to self isolate by NHS Test and Trace, are required to isolate after travel, or because you are displaying any COVID 19 symptoms, it goes without saying that you do not attend.

Adhere to any COVID 19 safety measures in place at the venue observing directions given by FSE or the venue.

Respect other people, keep your distance and discuss openly with other attendees how comfortable they are interacting with you.

Be prepared , you may need to wait longer to register as we ask people to keep their distance. Bring a jacket, it might be chilly as we open windows and doors to improve ventilation within the exhibition areas. As a result, please excuse external noise beyond our control.


What we are doing and what we ask of you, to keep you and others safe and feeling comfortable.

Asking you to adhere fully to our attendee code.

Asking you to carry out your own health risk assessment and know your covid status in advance of attending one of our events: You can access NHS lateral flow tests or for further testing options via https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/testing

Asking you to engage openly with other attendees to find out how comfortable they are interacting with you.

Wearing a mask is optional but also venue dependant, if it’s a venue requirement we would ask you to adhere to that.

We are completing a risk assessment for each event and discussing procedures with venues, to ensure we are as covid safe as possible.

We are ensuring venues are cleaning regularly and there is easy access to hand washing facilities at the venue along with FSE providing sanitising facilities on arrival.

We are spacing out exhibitors areas as much as we can and asking exhibitors to bring their own sanitiser with them for use when interacting at stands.

We are opening windows and doors within venues to increase ventilation and monitoring air quality in line with HSE guidance.

As far as we can we are going paperless, there will be no badges and our event packs will be sent via a pdf in advance of the event, large signage will be displayed at the reception showing the agenda and exhibitor/map layout  this is to reduce direct interactions between people.
