Keeping the DEMEC community covid secure
As stated on the DEMEC website homepage, DEMEC’s planning committee representing all the stakeholders wish to ensure that for those attending in person in December that DEMEC will take place in a covid secure environment.
DEMEC will be working together with Manchester Central to provide a covid safe environment throughout the DEMEC conference.
DEMEC will follow safe best practice and government guidance and will continually review attendance requirements based on available information.
To help keep our educational community safe, and those working on behalf of the venue and other suppliers, currently we request that in person attendees adhere to the below.
