Volunteer Expo would like to issue the following statement regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19):
We continue to follow advice from the World Health Organisation and Public Health England, as well as that of Local Government.
Precautionary measures are in place and we are monitoring the situation as it develops, but it currently remains business as usual and Volunteer Expo is going ahead as planned from 1-3 May 2020.
We have been in discussions with The NEC, the event venue, and their position remains unchanged, with other upcoming events also scheduled to take place as planned.
Staff, exhibitors and visitors are being encouraged to maintain good hand, respiratory and personal hygiene.
We will be taking steps to ensure additional signage and increased hand-hygiene facilities are available on site within the show.
Full information, latest advice and guidelines on Coronavirus can be found on the gov.uk website.
We look forward to welcoming visitors and exhibitors in May.
