The health and safety of our visitors is our number one priority. We are adhering to government guidance in relation to Coronavirus and continue to monitor and adjust to the evolving situation.

Covid Secure Measures:

Following the latest government update confirmed on December 14, the following guidelines are now in place for everyone over the age of 18:

Attendees at all indoor events for more than 10,000 people are legally required to show covid certification.

Attendees at all indoor events with 500 or more people unseated, for example standing floor concerts, are legally required to show covid certification.

Stewards will be performing COVID certification checks for those aged 18 and over at events taking place at Exhibition Centre Liverpool that require covid certification as customers enter. Below are the forms of proof that will be accepted: 

  • A valid NHS Covid pass via the NHS App or an NHS COVID Pass letter (available by phoning 119 and selecting “NHS COVID Pass Service” for all over 18’s.  Please have this ready on your phone on arrival
  • Or
  • Text or Email proof of a negative lateral flow or PCR test result as close as possible to attending the event but no later than 48hrs.

Please note that without the above you will not gain entry to the event.

Face coverings must be worn by those aged 12 and over at all times except while seated to eat or drink, or if exempt.

We will be ensuring that we continue to provide a safe environment for all by continuing with the following:
