COVID-19 Safety Measures

Visitors to Printwear & Promotion LIVE! can expect to see a number of COVID-19 safety measures in place when they attend in February.

The NEC is committed to providing safe and secure environments for all persons on site. In order to achieve this, the venue fully complies with government guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19 and has a number of measures in place, covered within its Venue Protect Framework.

The health and safety of visitors is our top priority. Consequently, the NEC is implementing COVID status checks at agreed entry points to keep visitors and staff safe. Visitors will need to show proof of their COVID-19 status. Accepted methods of showing proof are as follows:

  • NHS COVID-19 Pass via the NHS App or a paper copy.
  • Negative lateral flow or PCR test results text or email, received within 72 hours prior to attending.
  • Proof of immunity shown by a positive PCR test result, lasting 180 days from date of positive test and following completion of the self-isolation period.
  • Visitors who prefer not to use the NHS App or don’t have a smartphone can obtain a NHS COVID-Pass letter (proving vaccination status only) by calling 119 or visiting the NHS website.

We are a face covering friendly event. Face coverings are no longer required by law, however it is recommended that people should wear face coverings in crowded and enclosed settings where they come into contact with people they do not normally meet. If you wish to wear a face covering please feel free.
