  • What health and safety measures will there be at HETT Show?

    We currently have several options lined up and ready to go and these include testing before event attendance, visitors providing proof of vaccination, temperature checks and health questionnaires. Ultimately, what measures we take on-site will depend on the requirements set by the UK government after the event pilots they have run recently. We understand currently the UK is due to remove all lockdown restrictions on 19th July, the events pilots have gone well and we will have solid guidance from the UK government on what measures we should put in place. You can rest assured we take the health of our attendees (visitors and sponsors) very seriously and we will have measures (probably that go beyond government guidance) in place to protect all HETT Show visitors.
