ACC Liverpool has developed a new set of operational guidelines as part of the commitment to get events back up and running as soon as government restrictions are lifted.

Rediscover Events, aims to reassure event organizers and visitors of the measures taken to ensure that our campus offers a safe environment for bringing organized events and large numbers of delegates back together again.

It includes an A-Z of Covid-19 secure operational plans; key steps that we have already started to put into practice whilst we have been operating as a food and PPE distribution hub, and mass testing centre.

Measures include providing a Covid secure delegate journey - whilst working with organisers to tailor so-lutions to each individual event - providing virtual and hybrid content solutions; adapted food and drink experiences; one-way delegate movement systems and virtual venue tours during the planning process.

Capacities for socially-distanced conferences and exhibitions of up to 1,000 delegates are available on request. Our plans have been developed following advice from Public Health England, the Local Di-rector of Public Health, Visitor Economy Guidance and the All Secure Standard developed by the AEO, AEV and ESSA.

Wider destination and city support will also be provided for event organisers and delegates throu-gh the Liverpool City Recovery Group – a multi-agency group which has been looking at the ways that the city can get back up and running safely across all sectors. The group, which has been in place since the very early stages of lockdown, comprises city partners including Marketing Liverpool, Liverpool Con-vention Bureau, Merseyrail, Liverpool John Lennon Airport, The Royal Albert Dock and retail manage-ment companies Liverpool One and the Liverpool BID Company. The Group also includes Liverpool City Council and its key teams across licencing, emergency services and public health.
