Venue Protect

Working together to protect us all

Safely reopening for business on
1st October 2020

As the UK’s event industry gears up to help kickstart the economy, the safety of our customers and staff is at the heart of our planning so we have developed our Venue Protect 4 step approach, designed with you and your customers’ safety and wellbeing in mind.

We are pleased that the Government has announced an open date for our industry. The NEC will be open for business on 1st October and we look forward to once again hosting great live events at our venue.

Collaborative working

The NEC’s measures are aligned with the event industry’s and will be adapted as necessary to ensure they reflect the latest Government guidelines. As usual, we are working closely with event organisers and partners to ensure that we can deliver safe events, recognising that each event has differing requirements.

We are committed to working together to protect us all.
