If you are running a show or event in 2020 or beyond, your audience's safety is paramount.

 

Current Government advice* sets out clear guidelines for organising and operating an event. 

Using a professional compère, presenter, host or MC is now essential to the success of any show, event, conference or performance. 

keep your visitors safe

Spoken communication is the easiest way of reaching your audience - it requires no effort from them and actively reaches out to everyone on site on a regular basis.

 

Verbal updates can be constantly updated throughout the day - tailored to specific audiences and requirements, and to address any scenarios instantly, should they arise. 

 

Speaking directly to your audience is far more personal and engaging - visual signage alone can easily be missed or ignored.

advice

The UK Government has published clear advice and guidelines for all event and show organisers to keep your customers, audiences and colleagues safe. 

This includes:

  • Providing clear, consistent and regular communication, and in accessible formats, to improve understanding and consistency of ways of working.
     

  • Using simple, clear messaging to explain guidelines using images and clear language, with consideration of groups for which English may not be their first language, and addressing the needs of those with protected characteristics.
     

  • Managing family groups who may wish to remain closer than the required social distance but who, in doing so, may encourage others to cluster in a similar manner. Communication is key to this.
     

  • Discouraging or avoiding activities or features that are likely to encourage audience behaviours increasing transmission risk, such as crowding, clustering, communal dancing and physical contact outside of household groups or support bubbles.

  • Where possible, designating staff to manage queues and regulate guest access between areas.
     

  • Encouraging visitors to use hand sanitiser or handwashing facilities as they enter the site, premises or venue.
     

  • Management of crowd density points, such as where people stop to watch displays, must be considered as part of this planning to ensure social distancing can be maintained.
     

  • Providing clear guidance on social distancing and hygiene to visitors before arrival, for example by email when purchasing tickets, and on any digital marketing and websites.
     

  • Providing written or spoken communication of the latest guidelines to both workers and customers inside and outside the venue, including clear guidance on social distancing and hygiene to people on arrival and throughout the site, premises or venue. You should provide information setting out how audience members should behave at your venue to keep everyone safe.
     

  • Reviewing external messaging to visitors and audience to make sure it does not provide information that may present a security risk, such as the location of queues or the number of people permitted in a queue.

Full guidelines are available on the Gov.UK website.
