Covid 19 Information

COVID-19 coronavirus: information for our customers


Ocean Media Group, members of the Association of Event Organisers (AEO), continue to follow the guidelines set out by the government and closely monitor the situation regarding COVID-19 on a regular basis. The safety and welfare of our event attendees has always been paramount and remains a priority as we move forward with planning the event. Emirates Old Trafford is taking the necessary steps, including those listed below, to ensure they are COVID-19 secure.


With the lifting of all restrictions taking place on 19 July, we want to do all we can to reassure our audiences, who we know are so keen to come back together as a sector after such a protracted break. We work in a sector that has always put people first and we all know how important this is. The Women in Housing and Housing Heroes Awards will provide a much-needed place for us to regroup and support the good work we have done but we will be mindful of doing this in the safest way.


The results from the government event pilots were extremely encouraging and whilst the event may look slightly different this year we will go above and beyond to ensure all attendees are confident in their attendance.


Safety enhancements already in place at the venue:


  • Hand sanitiser stations located around the venue
  • Increased cleaning and sanitising of spaces and touchpoints
  • Wearing of face masks
  • Clear signage on venue safety measures, reminding everyone of the importance of hygiene
  • Queuing systems, furniture layouts and general spaces configured to allow visitors to maintain a safe distance


You can view the venue safety policy here.


Please contact a member of the team for more detail on the proposals.


Thank you for your support of the Women in Housing and Housing Heroes Awards and we look forward to seeing you on 7 September at the Emirates Old Trafford.
