Brexit planning

Currently, the UK is expecting to leave the EU on 31st October 2019. This departure may or may not be undertaken with a deal. Please find below our current suggestions and plans with regards to the impact of Brexit on attending (and our running of) our events.

TRAVEL

Who to contact if you have queries about your position

It is best to speak to a visa law expert/professional for the correct and current advice.

Non-EEA nationals requirements

The referendum has no effect upon the UK immigration system and there are no foreseeable changes to the mechanism by which non-EEA nationals can visit, study, work, or settle in the UK.

VENUE PLANS

We are working closely with all of our event venues to ensure they have sufficient plans in place to continue to provide the levels of service we require to smoothly run our events. This includes catering supplies, power, wifi, water and security.

SUPPLY DELIVERY

We are working closely with all of our event suppliers to ensure they have sufficient plans in place to continue to provide the levels of service we require to smoothly run our events.

Please note: we will continue to work closely with our venues and suppliers to ensure we are being as green and sustainable as we possibly can be. We are aware that Brexit may have an impact on what products are accessible in the UK and there may be a knock-on effect to the environment and we are committed to continuing to strive for our sustainability goals.

HEALTH & SAFETY

At this time we can only refer to the NHS for details about medicines, staffing, supply and demand. We also recommend travellers explore all their health insurance/travel insurance options and purchase accordingly.

At this time we have been unable to source NHS Scotland’s position on Brexit.
