Due to the current situation relating to the outbreak of Covid-19 Virus, the organisers of the Pharmacy Show would like to reassure all our exhibitors, visitors, staff and our many partners that we are closely monitoring the situation and, in cooperation with our venues, we will be taking all sensible steps to ensure that the Pharmacy Show proceeds safely and successfully.
You can all help us to have a safe and successful event by following the simple advice of the World Health Organization as you travel whilst attending crowded events such as the Pharmacy Show, organised by CloserStill Media.
We are carefully following government guidance, which, among other things, is to have good hand and respiratory hygiene and have introduced hand sanitisers at key locations around the show
We have also added signage regarding hygiene which will be in key locations around the exhibition hall and the Show.
We are working with the NEC venue and the statement of the steps they are taking can also be found on their website
At NEC there is a comprehensive daily cleaning schedule which includes monitoring of toilet facilities and of all public and event space on a frequent basis
The Venue also has a well-coordinated emergency management system in place at all times
We will continue to observe the situation and should Government advice change, or any additional precautions be advisable, we will react immediately and ensure this is communicated to all attendees and exhibitors.
Kindly note that we are also in the middle of the influenza season, so please stay at home if you start feeling ill.
You can see the WHO’s full advice to the public here:
For those receiving shipments from China ahead of the Pharmacy Show, rest assured that the WHO has declared packages and mail items coming from China to be safe.
Also please remember: exposure to Coronavirus has nothing to do with what you look like—the only important factor is whether or not you were in an affected area. All visitors, exhibitors and contractors must be treated with respect.
Let’s make sure that the Pharmacy Show is safe, enjoyable, and productive. Thank you for your understanding as we tackle this unexpected obstacle together, and we look forward to seeing you on 18-19 October 2020.
