MLA Expo Covid Statement

3D group have taken the planning and preparation of the upcoming trade show seriously!  

It has been crucial for us to consider the feelings of our attendees, who haven't been to any large-scale events in over a year and a half; we have tried to cover everything so your anxieties can be put to rest.  

The MLA has released a statement. 

Visitors and exhibitors will need to demonstrate proof of COVID-19 status for entry to MLA Expo 21; this can be in the form of ONE of the following:  

  • Proof of completion of a full course of COVID-19 vaccination two weeks before arrival, either through the NHS App or through your Vaccination Record Card.  

  • Proof of a negative Lateral Flow Test result taken within 72 hours of arrival, either through the NHS App or a picture of your negative reading on the cassette device itself  

  • Proof of a negative PCR test result taken within 5 days of arrival through the NHS App.  

  • Proof of natural immunity based on a positive PCR test taken within 180 days of the trade show. 

The MLA will provide wrist bands to confirm the check has been made and will help you get back into the venue if you decide to go outside and come back in.  

During the show: 

  • Stands have been spaced out to allow for social distancing.  

  • We are a mask friendly show, so if people want to wear face coverings, they are welcome to do so.  

  • Hand sanitiser stations will be located around the venue, which we encourage the use of. 

  • Cleaning teams are in place during the event to maintain hygiene levels across the TIC.   

  • Ventilation at the Telford International Centre has been reviewed to ensure adequate airflow/rotation through the halls during the event.    

What is 3D Group changing this year? 

We've made some changes to how we are organising the MLA tradeshow this year.  

We have been keeping close tabs on the changing environment of the past two years; we have realised that we will have to change the way we approach these large events; for the MLA tradeshow to be a successful event, having to be adaptable to navigating these ever-changing circumstances.  

We have been grappling with questions such as whether in-person events would ever occur again or whether the likes of large-scale conferences would move solely online. 

We have taken the time to reflect, evaluate and prepare for new events. Below you will see the steps we have taken to ensure that you have a safe and enjoyable tradeshow.  

Embraced New Technologies 

To accommodate safe social distancing and a safe environment for all parties, we will install regularly cleaned touchscreen points to browse and purchase your products. These touchscreen points will also show information and news, meaning there will be no paper flyers for you to take away.  

Don't worry, though, for those who have attended the event; we will email you a newsletter after the show to ensure you have all the information from the show.  

Making A Move Towards Paperless 

Sustainability and being environmentally conscious is a social issue that is now at the forefront of the event planning industry. However, efforts to go green can easily go hand in hand with preventive measures to limit the spread of Covid. For example, to lessen the amount of paper used at the MLA, we have employed a scannable QR code which will provide you will a trade show discount code.  

Additional Cleaning Schedules 

We always take pride in our cleanliness and presentation at trade shows, but we're kicking it up a notch this year. Our team will be ensuring all points of contact, and communal areas will be cleaned to ensure a safe visit to our stand.  

Covid Safety Screens  

To ensure the safety of you and our staff, we will install safety screens to minimise the contact you have with our team. We want this event to feel as 'normal' as it can be; we want you to feel that connection with our staff like you do event after event. We know that's why you come to these shows; well, that and the offers we run each year. However, for the safety of everyone involved, we are making efforts to limit the possibility of Covid-19 transmission.
