Venues Re-Opening on the 4th of July?

June 25, 2020

Meetings / training events / presentations / conferences, whatever the label you attach to your event the advice according to the industry magazine Conference News is that gatherings of over 30 people are banned. See Here for the article, and Here for the government guidance. The implication is that events of less than 30 are not banned!

Talking to industry colleagues nobody seems totally clear as to what is happening, Spaceworks and Regus with 321 locations in the UK are open and hosting meetings for 30 and more, as are meeting room providers like the Wallace Space. Other major venues including Leonardo Hotels in London are open for non-residential meetings and quoting etc.

Further confusion is that this advice (guidance) applies specifically to conference and exhibition venues, other seemingly similar venues like cinemas, theatres, or say large pubs and restaurants can open without any cap on numbers. Talking to someone at Vue cinemas today, they believe they can open for films and for events! Does this apply to all non-conference venues, can you run your conference for say 100 in a museum, a theatre, a restaurant, or a cinema?

Meetings up to 30
