Venue Protect

Working together to protect us all

Preparing for the safe reopening of our business

The safety of our customers, visitors and staff is at the heart of our planning, so we have developed NEC Venue Protect; an all-encompassing toolkit based on a four-step approach to the safety and protection of people 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.
