We continue to follow the current government guidance for large scale events. The Air Cargo News Awards will be hosting a drinks reception but overall numbers to the event have been limited. 

On arrival you will have your temperature checked by one of our staff and they will check your ticket and that you have completed our online attendance form. If your temperature is above 37.8 you will be asked to take a lateral flow test.

Sanitiser will be available on arrival before entering the drinks reception.

Masks for attendees are not mandatory for this event but we would strongly encourage you to wear one when interacting face to face with staff upon check in or when moving through crowded spaces at the venue.

All venue staff will be wearing masks for the duration. Servers will be wearing white cotton gloves replaced regularly throughout the service.

Cloakrooms will be open however guests should avoid bringing overnight bags to the venue to help minimize queues and crowding.

Yes the hotel bar will be open and operating under Covid secure procedures. The room used for the awards will continue to be open after the awards so guests can either use this or the bar seating areas.

The hotel maintains a high level of enhanced hygiene protocols in all areas. Deep cleaning and sanitization of public areas occurs on a daily basis.

Increased cleaning protocols are in place during the set-up, rehearsals and the event itself of all high touch points including stair and balcony handrails, door handles and bathrooms.

We require all attendee contact details this year so we can quickly disseminate information to all that attended the event if it is required to do so.
