A GUIDE TO REOPENING

WE'RE READY TO WELCOME YOU BACK TO OUR VENUE AND THE WORLD OF EVENTS

At Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre, we have developed a set of guidelines in line with the agreed industry 'All Secure Standard' and government advice ready for reopening on 1 October and hosting safe events.

A SAFE SPACE TO RECONNECT

We’re going to be living and working with a new set of social practices and behaviours, and so we've worked collaboratively with organisers to design events that feel safe and comfortable, in line with government advice.

As well as changes to how we operate our venue, we've developed ways to work collaboratively to create an environment that generates confidence and delivers success for your business.

At Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre, we have an abundance of versatile space and the expertise to help you plan and deliver a safe, memorable event.
