Last Updated - 29/07/21

While certain Government restrictions have now lifted, EPIC.LAN and Kettering Conference Centre still have a responsibility to manage the event safely and to minimise the risk of infection spread during its event. 

The following event policies are subject to change based on any changes in local and national Goverment guidance at the time of the event. 

COVID Passes

You will be required to show the NHS COVID Pass (or equivalent for non-UK residents) prior to entering the event. Access to the pass will depend on the guidance set out by the Government at the time. 

Check In & Arrival Times

In order to check COVID passes and check everyone in safely there will be a modified check-in process for the event that will be communicated closer to the time. This will involve staggered arrival times to prevent too many people congregating in the check-in area at the start of the event. 

Please be patient with our check-in team while they work through these longer processes to get everyone in to the event safely. 

Social Distancing

There is no formal social distance rule but we would encourage everyone to be sensible and respectful with space, especially those you do not know who may want you to keep a distance from them. When in queues around the venue or at the bar, shop or catering please respect those around you and keep a safe distance back. 

Indoor Sleeping

Indoor sleeping options are not available at this time and are very unlikely to be offered for this event due to not being able offer the amount of space and ventilation required to operate these areas with minimal risk. Outdoor camping in tents remains available along with local hotel options. 

Masks

Please follow any venue rules on masks at the time of the event unless you have a valid exemption, especially when circulating around shared spaces in the venue. 

Hand Sanitiser

There will be plenty of hand sanitiser stations around the venue, please use them frequently as well as thorough hand washing throughout the day. 

Physical Contact

Respect that not everybody will be ready to hand shake or hug. Minimise contact with those you do not know and stick with fist bumps. Make sure you only use your own equipment where possible. 

Shop, Bar & Catering Payments

All EPIC.LAN and venue payments will be by card only. 

If you are unwell before the event

Don't come to the event, talk to us about transferring your ticket to another event or refunding, but please do not risk everyone else at the event. 

Ventilation 

We may have to keep doors/windows open or air circulation/handling turned up high to meet government guidelines, this could result in the rooms being colder than normal, please make sure you have things like jumpers/hoodies to keep warm if needed.
