CCR will be one of the first conferences in the UK to be held since March following the UK Government’s recent announcement allowing business events, conferences and events centres to reopen from October 1.
CCR, as part of Easyfairs, will take place on October 1 and 2 at the ExCeL centre in London and has signed an agreement with SGS, the world's leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company to ensure the safety of all delegates attending the conference.
Easyfairs explains that in order to create the safest possible environment for attendees, SGS will verify CCR and ExCeL’s hygiene and disinfection protocols, validate training plans for employees on implementation of the enhanced health and safety protocols and develop a control and monitoring program to ensure these standards are maintained.
Alison Willis, director of CCR as well as Aesthetics Media, as part of Easyfairs, commented, “Health and wellbeing are our top priority, and we are doing everything to make our conference the cleanest and safest place to meet and do business. We want to be sure that everyone who attends CCR not only has an easy visit, but a safe visit. To this end, we are putting our trust in SGS, the global benchmark for quality and integrity.”
Jeremy Rees, CEO at ExCeL London, said, “Having played a full role in supporting the NHS, providing all of our facilities for the Nightingale Hospital, we are now looking forward to playing an equally active role in the nation’s economic recovery. The vast majority of the venue (90%) has been restored to its original state, with the remaining space secured as equipment storage for NHS Nightingale. We look forward to hosting safe, secure, and successful business events and conferences from October 1 onwards.”
The SGS agreement will also apply to next year’s Aesthetics Conference and Exhibition, taking place on March 12 and 13 at the Business Design Centre, Islington.
