You can expect to see that health and safety is a priority, and that a range of measures are in place to ensure everyone involved is able to enjoy a safe, enjoyable, and well organised event experience.

Reuters Events will follow government rules and regulations and health authority guidance for the location the event is taking place in. In addition, we will run in accordance with any venue specific requirements and following our All Secure Pledges that relate to Physical Distancing, Cleaning & Hygiene, Protect & Detect and Communications.

The Reuters Events All Secure Pledges are based on a set of event industry best practice guidelines, called All Secure. Developed by leading industry associations including the AEO, UFI & SISO, these guidelines offer best practices to support the safe delivery of all types of events across the world. The Reuters Events All Secure Pledges are the way these industry-wide All Secure guidelines are being applied to our events. They will underpin the health and safety plans for all events in our portfolio.

Whilst social distancing is no longer mandatory in many of the cities we operate, we encourage attendees to be mindful of others and keep a respectful distance where possible.

Reuters Events will let you know in plenty of time what the specific guidelines are for the event you are attending. Several steps have been taken to facilitate social distancing during our events. Examples of measures used to ensure this are one way systems, extended entry times, onsite signage and floor markings.

Reuters Events will work closely with venue partners to ensure the highest standard of food safety. We will be minimising self-service buffets in favour of served or pre-packaged food options.
