Having spoken to several of our ticket holders we have found that we have several delegates with underlying health issues - including one of our organising team - and a lot of nervous attendees.
DDD East Midlands Conference is an inclusive event to celebrate and explore the great technical talent across the region, so we don’t want you spending the day anxious about covid, we want you to be having fun!
To ensure the event is as safe as possible for all in attendance we are taking the following precautions and ask that you help us by cooperating with them.
When you arrive we will do the following:
We will do this by using a “thermometer gun,” a device that is equipped with an infrared sensor that can quickly measure surface temperature without making any contact with a person's skin.
You can do this via the paper card you carry in your wallet or by showing us your digital “NHS Covid Pass”.
To get the NHS Covid Pass you’ll need to register on the NHS App and download it to your phone ahead of time. To register, the process takes around 5-10 mins but it can take up to 24 hours for the NHS to process so please do this ahead of time. You can then save the pass into your digital wallet for easy access
If you have medical reasons why you have not been vaccinated please let the volunteers know. We understand there will need to be exemptions for some cases.
We would like you to do this by entering your negative result athttps://test-for-coronavirus.service.gov.uk/report-result/login-choice.From this you will receive an email or text message to confirm your negative result, which we would like you to show us upon arrival.
If you cannot prove a negative lateral flow result we will have a testing area at the venue where you will be asked to do one in real time before joining the conference. Please bear in mind this will take 30 mins as a minimum so arrive early!
The wrist band will indicate if you are socially distancing or not.
We thank you in advance for being respectful about peoples choices around their social distancing requirements.
These additional checks will mean it takes a little longer to check you in than we would usually like, but hope you understand we are taking these precautions so that everyone feels safe and relaxed and can enjoy the event.
