We have received a small number of enquiries about the steps HR Grapevine is taking to mitigate the risk posed by the coronavirus (COVID-19) at our up-coming event on Thursday, 12th March in London.
Please note that there are no current plans to cancel the conference and we are still receiving bookings from delegates even at this late stage. We are, however, very much aware that the coronavirus situation is evolving. We are monitoring, and will continue to monitor, the UK and global situation, and will act upon any official advice from the UK Government.
The majority of the speakers, delegates and sponsors are UK based and are therefore not relying on international travel. Furthermore, the numbers of confirmed attendees on the day is small (c.375) in comparison with the large public events which have been curtailed overseas.
Your health is of primary importance to us so please be assured that we, and The Brewery (Policy on Covid-19), are acting upon all official UK Government advice received in order to ensure your safety, to act responsibly and to help minimise the spread of the coronavirus. We will also be providing all delegates with hand sanitizers in their delegate bags too.
We ask that you please act responsibly when attending the conference and follow the UK Government advice regarding travel. You can keep up to date by visiting GOV.UK and the National Health Service. We will of course also keep you updated on any developments with regard to the conference.
We look forward to seeing you at conference.
