Covid-19 Safety Measures

The return of an in-person Digital Gaggle is something we’ve been eagerly anticipating for a long time. In order to make sure every attendee, speaker, sponsor, and team member has an enjoyable and safe experience, we’ve put the following safety measures in place.

What safety measures will be in place at Digital Gaggle?

  • Everyone will need to provide proof of a negative lateral flow test to enter the event. You will not be able to partake in the event without this. We think this is the best way to mitigate the risk associated with Covid-19.
  • The conference will run at 50% capacity meaning that social distancing is easier within the event spaces.
  • Coded lanyards will be worn by attendees to indicate whether they want to socially distance or are happy with closer contact.
  • Lunch will be provided in individual lunchboxes, rather than a buffet.

As well as these safety measures, the event venue also has rules in place.
