Covid19 Policy

Black Tech Achievement Awards, UK Black Business Week & Show COVID19 Safety Plan 2022

After consultation with the venue and relevant official bodies, The UK Black Business Show Ltd has made the decision to move forward with in-person events in 2022. 

We are taking safety at our events seriously and these policies will be considered alongside relevant Government announcements and updated accordingly.

After careful consideration, we have implemented the following measures to promote the health and wellbeing of attendees and staff: 

Pre-Arrival  

Before arriving you should have already ​registered​ for the UK Black Business Week to speed up your entry into the event. 

  • Please do not travel to any UK Black Business Week event if you show any of the following ​symptoms​:
    • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
    • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
    • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal  

Please do not travel to any UK Black Business Week event if you have been requested to ​isolate​.

Arrival  

From 27th January 2022, there is no longer a legal requirement to wear face coverings in indoor settings or on public transport but the government suggests you continue to wear one in crowded and indoor spaces where you may come into contact with people you do not normally meet.

You’ll no longer need to show your NHS COVID Pass at venues and events by law.

Sensor-based ​hand sanitisers​ will be positioned and available near the entrance of the venue. We encourage all visitors to the venue to use these upon arrival.  

In the instance that a queue has formed during the registration process or around the venue, ​social distance​ floor makers will be laid out to indicate where you should stand and queue. 

The Venue, Staff, Public Spaces and Meeting/Conference Spaces  

The ​Venue, its ​Staff​ (along with the events Staff), ​Public Spaces​ and the Meeting/Conference​ spaces have all been considered within a COVID-safe plan.  

The front desk/registration area and frequently touched areas are disinfected on a regular basis throughout the day and night.  

Meeting/Conference spaces are also regularly disinfected and ‘fogged’ to dispense sanitisers and disinfectants.

The venue lifts, especially operating buttons, are sanitised with suitable virus-killing chemicals every 2 hours  

As the situation evolves, so will our approach to keeping you safe. We thank you for your patience and flexibility as we manage this and ask that you check back here for updates.
