EI Live! COVID-19 Status.

AIn line with the latest government advice, we have worked closely with both the Farnborough exhibition and conference centre and the Exhibitions and Events Industry to establish guidance to allow us to confidently offer a safe environment for all.

As an organiser we are suggesting that all visitors who have not been double jabbed to take a lateral flow test within twenty four hours of visiting EI Live!, we will also have a batch of lateral flow tests as organisers at the show and we will be randomly testing visitors. However, I would add that this is not compulsory. We are suggesting that masks are optional as the government suggest for the UK. We will have a batch of masks at the show to give away if need be. Naturally we will also have hand sanitisers placed in reception, around the show and all spaces where people gather.

We are dedicated to delivering a safe and secure event for all and the safety and comfort of all our visitors, exhibitors and staff at EI Live! remains our top priority.

The Show

Marking its tenth year in the market, EI Live! is returning with an expanded format covering three related and inter-connected sectors giving exhibitors and visitors a unique opportunity to explore existing relationships fully, but also create brand new ones.

Following recent developments, the decision has been made to move EI Live! to the new dates of September 29 – 30, 2021. All other aspects of the show will remain the same and the show team is also looking into moving the presentation of the Smart Building Awards to during EI Live! to September 2021. Visitor registration will open again soon.

A September date also gives us more time to increase the footprint of EI Live! even further, and gives us time to put more visitor attractions in place and also increase the visitor offering across the show.

EI Live! 2021 will cover home automation, entertainment, and AV systems, but also encompass commercial building automation and AV as well as smart products from the world of electrical contracting.

By pushing boundaries that have yet to be explored by any UK trade show in the automation and AV market, the event has been constructed to deliver a unique nexus of industries, products, exhibitors, and attendees, that will drive business and create new opportunities.
