Keeping you safe

Last updated: May 10, 2022

Your safety and your business are our priorities. At AIX, both are in safe hands.

At AIX, we are all about connecting people, so the health and safety of our visitors, exhibitors and staff are of the utmost priority. Our team is working closely with local authorities, partners, and venues to implement robust safety measures, which means our event may look slightly different this year. We will continue to update you on this page and our communications with the specifics as we approach the show.

We will continue to review and update the regulations according to the latest guidance. Please check back regularly for updates.
