Celebrate the EN Awards in style on Friday 30 July from 6pm at Evolution London
Following the announcement delivered by Boris Johnson on 14 June, EN has decided to postpone the EN Awards till 30 July at Evolution London. This decision was not an easy one but once the full extent of the continued restrictions was understood by the EN team, it was decided that a delay was the best decision to give the industry the event that it deserves, especially after so long.
If the event was to go ahead on the original date of 2 July, government guidelines would have limited tables to six, and all guests would have had to remain at the table to network for the entirety of the event. Masks would have to be worn the entirety of the event and food and drink consumed while sat down only. And, on top of that, no afterparty would have been permitted.
Having made the decision around the date change for the awards, Duncan Siegle, event portfolio director at Mash Media, said: “We have waited far too long to not give the exhibition industry the event they deserve, pulling through this time together, recognise all your achievements pre and during pandemic, celebrate and have a night to acknowledge the future prosperity of the industry, without any restrictions.”
Further announcements on what to expect on the night will be made over the coming weeks.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL ATTENDEES
EN Awards Covid Safety Entry Guidelines
We want to make sure the EN Awards is as safe an environment as possible. We are therefore asking everyone to take a lateral flow home kit test no more than 24 hours before the event.
You will need to present the confirmation of a negative test (either email or text message) to gain entry into the venue. Further information can be found below.
Taking a lateral flow Covid-19 test
Test kits can be collected free of charge from most pharmacies across the UK. Each box contains seven test kits and includes clear instructions on how to take the test, which takes two minutes to complete and 30 minutes for the result to show.
We will have a limited number of these test kits available on site on the day. Please let us know if you would like to use one of these kits in advance and allow an extra 30 minutes before the event.
The safety of our attendees and staff is of paramount importance. All guests must present a negative test to gain entry to the EN Awards. We appreciate your compliance.
If taking at home:
Do not take the test more than 24 hours before the event start.
• Take the home kit test (it takes 30 minutes for the test result to show on the kit itself)
• Register the result of the test by following this link (you do not need your NHS number) https://www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result
• You can scan the QR code on this site if you are doing it on your mobile, or input the test ID number if you are doing it from a desktop or laptop computer
• You will be asked to input your test result: negative or positive
• If your test is negative, you will receive a text message and email within a few minutes
