As a result of the latest Government guidelines, Rothamsted Conference Centre in Harpenden is only open for certain types of business events.
The Government has confirmed that only essential business events can take place in Tier 4 areas across England. Only business events for work, training or education purposes are permitted, with the added requirement that they may only run if they cannot be delayed or conducted online. Under the latest government guidance, people in Tier 4 areas must stay at home, and work remotely unless they are unable to do so.
The Department for Culture, Media and Sport’s (DCMS) Visitor Economy Guidance for business events in Tier 4 areas reads:
“Large business events such as conferences, exhibitions and trade shows are not permitted, this includes drive-in events. Business meetings for work, training or education purposes can still take place but only where the event cannot be delayed, where it is not possible to carry out the activity from home, and if social distancing can be maintained and the venue can demonstrate it has followed Covid-19 guidance.”
Any permitted business event should adhere to Covid-secure guidance, such as ensuring adequate track and trace measures, maintaining social distancing, the wearing of masks, and follow strict hygiene measures.
If you have an event that falls into these essential categories, please contact us to discuss how we can help.
