Buggers - 

I know that opinion on this condition is somewhat "speculative" and a fair bit of media scaremongering is also going on - Whilst it can be argued that many of the facts do not quite add up to anything worse than seasonal flu with a percentage of contagion / death rate far below the average of populous reported, it can also be argued just as well that people are indeed dying, many are deeply concerned and that it also needs to be taken seriously. There is no doubt though that things will almost certainly spread here in the UK and that many more reports will materialize from coughs and snivels to serious problems. With many National "gatherings" being under review at the moment for obvious reasons, I have received an email from the NEC regarding the show being held in the next few weeks. Obviously, this is going to be a somewhat fluid scenario and things may change at short notice, so if anyone hears anything first hand that isn`t from a Facebook panic with burning pitchforks, please post it on here. Keep safe people, and should anyone wish to pull out of displaying or attending this event whatever the current situation, it is completely understood and nobody on here will think any less of you - but please let us know, so we can fill any empty spaces if necessary.






Coronavirus/COVID-19 Guidance
Clarion Events, the organisers of the show, has published the following statement about the Coronavirus for exhibitors:

Ensuring the safety of all customers and attendees to our events is our top priority.  We are continuing to monitor closely the latest public health and government advice in each of our markets around the world.  Practical Classic Car & Restoration Show 2020 is going ahead as planned there are no attendees from China and Hong Kong.
 
As a precaution, we will be implementing a range of additional hygiene measures further information can be found on the event website: www.necrestorationshow.com/faqs
 
We support the stance taken by the Global Association for the Exhibition Industry, the UFI, and remain committed to delivering innovative and market-leading events.
 
Where possible we are providing alcohol-based hand rub in the event space but you may wish to consider bringing your own alcohol-based hand rub to have available for your staff and visitors on your stand.
 
We are enhancing cleaning in the general event space but you may wish to consider bringing your own cleaning materials so you can disinfect your stand more frequently (please ensure all cleaning materials are disposed of safely).
 
Please advise your staff to:

    Clean hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub frequently
    Cover nose and mouth with tissues or inside of elbow when coughing or sneezing
    Capture coughs and sneezes in tissues and bin them immediately to avoid spreading germs - coughs and sneezes travel further than you think
    Avoid close contact with anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms
    Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth wherever possible
    Please report any incidents or concerns to the Organisers Office

Updates will be posted here as and when new information comes to light.

It would appear that many shows are pulling out of the NEC at the moment 

Practical Classics still looks ok at the moment, but worth keeping a check on the main NEC Website for updated info
