With a busy schedule of trade shows planned for 2022, AIS has confirmed that its INDX shows will go ahead under current Government guidance for large indoor events and trade shows.

As well as mandatory face coverings, visitors will have to present either their Covid-19 pass or proof of a recent negative lateral flow test on arrival.

Head of events, Jane Bartlett, says: “Two years on, we’d all hoped the pandemic would be over. Instead, we’re learning to live with changing Covid restrictions in a way that allows us to carry on with our lives as normally - and safely - as possible.”

The show calendar begins with INDX Furniture (pictured) on 23rd-25th January, followed by INDX Kidswear on 30th-31st January and INDX Womenswear & Footwear, Menswear & Footwear, Intimate Apparel and a combined Housewares & Linens show in February. Details and registration for all upcoming shows can be found on the INDX website.

"Exhibitors are signing up daily and visitor registrations are building, reflecting the confidence in our measures despite the challenges from the Omicron variant," states the organiser. "The health and safety of our visitors, exhibitors and employees is of the utmost importance, and we continue to monitor guidance and comply with regulations. We recommend visitors to check the Covid page on our website for the latest updates before attending."
