MIA's Event Safety Measures

COVID Safety Measures

Our priority is the health and safety of our attendees. The mia continually follows the official guidance from the UK Government, and to ensure confidence in attending an mia event, all event safety measures will be highlighted prior to attending. All requirements and expectations of attendees will be communicated ahead of an event based on the current guidelines at that time. 

Pre-Event:

  • We will keep up-to-date information on our event websites pertaining to the status of the event, and precautions for attendees onsite.
  • We will send email communications to registered event participants with any pertinent updates leading up to the event.
  • You will be sent your event badge with a QR code in advance of the event. Please ensure you bring this with you on the day.

Onsite:

  • We will provide sanitisation stations onsite at the event with alcohol-based hand sanitizer throughout the venue.
  • We will provide signage onsite encouraging attendees to practice respiratory hygiene.
  • Covering your mouth and nose with a flexed elbow or tissue (not hands) when coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your hands, nose, and mouth to avoid transferring germs from surfaces.
  • Wash your hands frequently with an alcohol-based sanitizer and/or soap and water.
  • We will provide signage to encourage attendees to maintain social distancing.
  • We will ask the venues we use to regularly sanitise all surfaces throughout the event space.
  • We will be sanitising speaker microphones between each speaker’s use.
  • mia Staff and attendees will be required to wear face coverings where required (unless an exemption applies) - appropriate signage will be in place to remind you.
  • The mia will adopt a contact-free registration system.

  • Wash hands frequently

  • Wear a face-covering throughout the venue, unless seated for refreshments
  • Arrive at the event with your QR badge available to support our contact-free registration system (badge can be presented on an electronic device)
