Event organisers

Our industry associations and the government have been working together to create guidelines and risk assessments to help organisers plan for face-to-face events. For more information see the official UK government guidance.

Working with the government, the following trade associations have published guidance on business events, which event organisers and venues should refer to when developing risk assessments.

These guidelines focus on key principles such as crowd control measures, robust cleaning and sanitation provisions, contact tracing systems for staff and delegates pre and post event, detailed risk assessments and flexible timings to allow staggered delegate arrivals if using public transport.

London event venues

London's hotels, venues and event suppliers are reopening, prioritising safety above all else, while encouraging organisations to enjoy that all important and valuable face-to-face setting. Check directly with venues for information on their requirements such as bookings, face coverings and other safety measures.

Our partners at Visit England, in partnership with the national tourist organisations of Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, have launched a UK-wide industry standard and consumer mark.

The We’re Good to Go” industry standard and supporting mark means our tourism and event businesses can demonstrate that they are adhering to the respective government and public health guidance, have carried out a coronavirus risk assessment and checked that they have the required processes in place.

The London Convention Bureau is encouraging all our tourism and event suppliers in London to sign and implement this standard as it corresponds directly with the UK government’s official guidance for the sector. 

Safety, health and wellbeing are paramount to everything we do at the London Convention Bureau. Our businesses are committed to providing a safe and secure location for you to feel confident in organising your live events.

We look forward to welcoming you back to London.
