Covid Safety at DataFest


We can’t wait to welcome you to The Balmoral and have our first physical event in what feels like ages!

In order to make sure everyone feels safe and comfortable at the event we are asking people to take basic precautions in-keeping with industry standards for an event of this size.

We ask that before you attend, you complete the following steps:

  • Get free NHS Lateral Flow Tests from either your local pharmacy or order online here. (Please note these can take up to two days to arrive by mail.)
  • Take the Lateral Flow Test within the 48 hours before the conference (No earlier than 9am, Monday 22nd November)
  • Report your test result with the government’s test reporting portal.
  • Please do not attend the event if your test comes back positive or if you are exhibiting even mild Covid symptoms.

We will not have any testing facilities at The Balmoral so please ensure you follow these steps before attending. 

During the event we ask that you wear a mask when walking around the venue and maintain social distancing where possible. Masks are not required while seated or while eating or drinking. 

There will be hand sanitizer available in each area of the venue which we encourage you to use. 

The Data Lab, DataFest and The Balmoral take Covid-19 extremely seriously and we trust that our attendees will do the same.
We’re looking forward to seeing you on the 24th of November!
Kind regards,
The DataFest team!
