With the changes in the Covid restrictions, Living Media Events wanted to give you an important update regarding this year’s Caffè Culture.


In line with latest government guidance and the Association of Event Organisers, we have taken the decision to verify attendee Covid-19 status on arrival at the event which will include visitors, exhibitors, contractors, venue and organiser staff. 

This means attendees will need to demonstrate proof of COVID-19 status for entry to the event. This will need to be one of the following:

  • Proof of completion of a full course of vaccination via the NHS COVID Pass or equivalent for international visitors
  • Proof of a negative Lateral Flow Test result taken within 48hrs of arrival
  • Proof of natural immunity shown by a positive PCR test result for COVID-19

Here are some additional COVID-19 precautions we are taking in collaboration with the Business Design Centre:

Masks: In line with the Government guidance from July 19th, it will no longer be mandatory to wear a mask or face covering in all settings. This means that you can use your discretion when in quiet areas of the venue, but we ask that you carry a mask with you at all times and be courteous to those around you by wearing a mask in areas that may become busy. These may include when queuing in Jack’s restaurant, using busy walkways or before you enter or leave the building through the reception.

Entrance area: Thermal imaging cameras have been installed in the reception area and loading bay to detect body temperatures of those arriving into the building. Anyone showing a temperature of 38.0 C and above will be given the opportunity to wait outside in an appropriate area for 10 minutes to be re-tested. 

Cleaning & Venue Hygiene: The facilities team continue to work onsite with a robust cleaning schedule in place. All high volume touch points such as door handles, push plates, handrails and lift call points are being sanitised on a regular basis. You may find that your nearest toilet is locked now and again, this is just so we can carry out deep cleaning throughout the day. Nearest toilets are signposted at their entrances so you will always be able to find an alternative.

Hand Sanitiser & Hot Water Hand Washing Stations: We ask that you wash your hands as soon as arriving at the BDC. Hand Sanitiser will be available at the entrance and around the building, and hot water hand washing stations with anti-bacterial hand wash are positioned inside. The soap used at the stations and within the toilet facilities is anti-bacterial, killing 99.9% of germs.
