100% Optical – the UK's largest optical event – is one of numerous exhibitions and events ExCeL London is delighted to be hosting in 2022. Of course, the health and wellbeing of every single person who comes through our doors remains our number one priority, and our whole team has been working incredibly hard to ensure all our visitors feel reassured.
Throughout the health crisis, ExCeL London has been working in close collaboration with the event industry, following the latest government guidance, to develop the necessary safety measures. We all have a role to play in keeping events safe. That’s why everyone who comes into ExCeL London will be asked to provide proof of a double vaccination (NHS COVID Pass), COVID-19 anti-bodies or a negative lateral flow test. We’re also recommending visitors continue to wear face coverings inside the venue. Hand sanitiser stations are located throughout the venue. In addition, our in-house teams are conducting enhanced cleaning regimes, using chlorine-based fluids at all key touch points, whilst ventilation has also been increased in line with the latest CIBSE guidance. We’ve also installed new NEMS (Nimlok Entry Management System) digital signage at the entrances to all bathrooms to help with the people flow.
These measures are in addition to those undertaken by 100% Optical and its exhibitors to help ensure the focus of the event is on what matters the most; the optometrist community reconnecting, networking and learning about the latest health products and trends.
