The government announced restrictions will continue until the 19th of July and then they will be lifted. Therefore, the enhanced safety measures we introduced for ENERGYx2020/21will be paired back.

We will make provisions for those who feel they may be at risk so they can meet customers, suppliers, colleagues, influencers, experts, and business associates in a safe and secure environment.

Our safety policies are based on our key cornerstones to provide you with assurance and confidence the events will run in a safe environment.

Cleaning and Hygiene

Ventilation – The event is being held in a very well aired Marquee Village and Outdoor setting.

Enhanced Cleaning – The Cleaning Team will be operating ensuring all touch points and seating areas are regularly wiped with chlorine-based cleaning fluid.

Bathrooms – All bathrooms will be checked and maintained by a dedicated team of cleaners and will manage queuing to use the facilities.

Hand Sanitiser – Dispensers will be provided throughout.

Hand Washing – Reminders to regularly wash hands will be in place.

Food & Beverage – Food preparation areas will be regularly inspected and the usual cleaning procedures you would expect will be in place.

Physical Distancing

Queuing – Any areas where queuing is required will be managed with signage and floor markings.

Minimise Queuing – All attendees will need to pre-register to attend.

Badges – Where possible please print your badge at home to reduce need for queuing. 

Seating – Public seating will be adequately spaced.

Aisles – Are sufficient spaced to prevent overcrowding.


With NET ZERO in mind, our aim is to encourage everybody attending the event to leave the car at home, however some vulnerable attendees may wish to use their cars.

Bus – Chester has an approved service to ensure social distancing when travelling to the Racecourse.

FREE Parking – Chester Racecourse has 600 free visitor parking spaces.

Walking – Chester Racecourse is a short 10 min walk from Chester Mainline Station.


Finally, as much as we want to see you join us, we kindly ask you to respect everyone’s health and safety. If you feel at all ill – including mild cold symptoms or a high temperature – please stay at home.
