The Med-Tech COVID Commitment

We look forward to welcoming you to the show.

Your health, safety and comfort have been, and continue to be, a top priority. Alongside our venue, the NEC, we are committed to delivering safe and secure events which support the recovery of the UK manufacturing industry.

We will operate under the guidance set by Public Health England after 19th July 2021 and in line with the industry’s All Secure Standard. All Secure is a comprehensive set of guidelines for exhibitions and events developed by our industry association, the AEO (Association of Event Organisers) which has been approved by UK government.

For enhanced safety and peace of mind and in line with latest government guidance and the Association of Event Organisers, we have added some additional measures. In particular, we have taken the decision to verify the COVID status of all event attendees on arrival at the venue (to include visitors, exhibitors, contractors, venue and organiser staff) and we ask everyone planning to attend to adhere to our COVID Commitment outlined below.

1) All attendees must be prepared to show proof of either

a) having had two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days before attending.


b) a negative Lateral Flow Test result, which can be taken at home or at a recognised centre free of charge, within 48 hours of arrival at the event.


c) natural immunity shown by a positive PCR test result for COVID-19, lasting for 180 days from the date of the positive test and following completion of the self-isolation period. Click here for guidelines of proof accepted.

Visitors with a medical exemption should advise a member of staff during the checking process.

2) All attendees must agree NOT to attend if they answer YES to any of the following questions

Are you feeling unwell, including a high temperature, new continuous cough and a loss of, or change to, your sense of smell or taste?

Are you currently required to isolate following a visit to an area or country where quarantine is required upon return?

Have you been told to self-isolate by a government test and trace service?

Is anyone in your household suffering with COVID-19 symptoms?

Have you been in close contact with anyone who has COVID-19 or anyone who has been showing symptoms?

3) All attendees must agree to leave immediately should they develop COVID-19 symptoms during the event.

4) All attendees must agree to be considerate to those around them at all times and respectful of all our safety measures at the show.
