Visa Policy

We cannot issue letters of invitation to visitors for visa purposes. Once you have registered for the event via the event website you will receive a confirmation email which should be sufficient for visa applications.

COVID-19

An update on our venue protect ventilation policy.

We’ll be altering the ventilation settings across all venues from next week.

Our venues fully comply with government legislation on managing the risk of COVID-19 to keep everyone’s experience safe.

We will continue to implement our enhanced venue sanitisation, with all communal areas cleaned frequently, alongside high contact surfaces throughout event days.

Given the expected increase in outside temperatures our ventilation systems will be optimised to provide increased air recirculation which will provide comfortable conditions for all event spaces while reducing our carbon footprint through reduced utility consumption. We’ll continue to monitor all changes to COVID regulations and update our setup where appropriate.

Human interaction is what we do but we understand that convenience is key and that many people will still want to minimise unnecessary contact. We have taken advantage of tech solutions to provide contactless options. So, to minimise contact points when in our venue, visitors can pre-pay parking online, use our cashless options for payment at all food and drink outlets and even pre-order food via an app.
