The Association of Event Venues (AEV) has welcomed the news that London’s Queen Elizabeth II (QEII) Centre has agreed to formally adopt the eGuide, the association’s common regulative policy for major UK event venues.
The QEII Centre’s adoption of the eGuide brings the total number of UK venues using it to 19.
The eGuide contains detailed guidance for achieving common standards of health, safety and operational planning, management and on-site conduct, and is aimed at consolidating venue rules across the UK, irrespective of size and location.
Anna Clover, The QEII Centre’s director of venue operations and customer experience, explained the venue’s decision to adopt the eGuide: “The eGuide distills an enormous amount of knowledge and experience into a structured guide to venue operations, and the benefits to the industry of having a consistent set of regulations and guidance are significant.
“By adopting the eGuide, the Queen Elizabeth II Centre is joining the ranks of major venues in the UK that unambiguously promote safe, sustainable, and compliant working practices and conditions.”
Rachel Parker, AEV director, added “The Queen Elizabeth II Centre is the largest dedicated conference space in central London, and its decision to adopt the eGuide is very positive news.”
