Be Safe

A Questex Commitment.


Together we can create a safe space where business can flourish.

Your health and safety—and ours—are important! We are taking every step to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all attendees and staff, and therefore will be implementing a detailed health and safety plan as outlined below. We will also continue to monitor the best ways to stay safe which may result in adjustments to this plan.

Getting you back to business…safely. It happens here.
