To keep visitors and staff safe, the NEC are implementing COVID-19 status checks at agreed entry points. When visiting the NEC, visitors should come prepared to show proof of their COVID-19 status.
The accepted method of showing COVID-19 status is as follows:

Lateral flow or PCR negative test results text or e-mail, received within 72 hours prior to attending the event.
If visitors would prefer not to use the app or do not have a smartphone they can obtain a NHS COVID-19 Pass letter (proving vaccination status only) by calling 119 or visiting the NHS website. Visitors with a medical exemption should advise a member of staff during the checking process.
