We will be monitoring pre-registrations and the hall capacity during the show to ensure that we can control the amount of people present. This means that we can keep to government guidelines and ensure everyone’s safety.
Current government guidelines currently suggest 2 metre distancing which equals to 1 person per 4.9sqm.
The space at Ricoh Arena is 6000sqm which approximates 1200 people being allowed in the hall at any time. Robotics & Automation has circa 1200 – 1500 attendees over a two-day period.
We kindly request when walking around the hall that you comply with social distancing guidelines set out by the government (2m, or 1m with risk mitigation where 2m is not viable). There will be clear signage around the show to help you follow these guidelines.
Robotics & Automation will implement one-way aisles and directional walkways, which will allow visitors to access every stand. This will help manage traffic and minimise crowding. Aisles have been widened to allow people to walk in both directions, so please keep to your side as indicated by directional arrows.
There will be separate doors for entry and separate doors to exit the hall.
Conference areas will allow for social distancing, with at least 1 metre between chairs. This means there will be limited capacity so make sure you arrive early. Some chairs may be marked as unavailable so please respect the instructions and do not move chairs. To comply with the social distancing there will also be no standing allowed around the conference theatre.
