Update on coronavirus

Whilst the UK risk level of Coronavirus has been increased from low to moderate, the risk to individuals has not changed at this stage and it remains low.  We continue to follow advice from the World Health Organisation and Public Health England, as well as that of Local Government.  Precautionary measures are in place and we are monitoring the situation as it develops, but it currently remains business as usual and all events are going ahead as planned.  Staff, exhibitors and visitors are being encouraged to maintain good hand, respiratory and personal hygiene.
