COVID19 safety measures

The Publishing Show



Our team has been working hard to ensure that all the necessary safety measures and precautions are in place for The Publishing Show 2021 should we need them. We are closely monitoring the situation to ensure the show can take place as safely as possible in line with government guidelines.

With the vaccine being rolled out and Boris Johnsons announcement that events will be able to take place without restrictions from 21 June, we are confident that we will be able to run the event without having to take some of these measures, but rest reassured that we have a plan B!


Should we need to, we are able to run the event in inline with all the recommended covid safety measures

  • Mandatory face masks for staff, visitors and exhibitors
  • Advanced entrance feature for sanitation and temperature check
  • Scheduled attendance timings (AM-PM day1and day2) – controlling maximum numbers within social distancing guidelines
  • Official Event App - Ability to pre-schedule appointments and engage with exhibitors pre-show
  • One way layout, factoring exhibitor numbers and flow.
  • Increased isle sizing where required
  • Floor activated touch screens
