Covid-19 Advice

Published June 2020, to be revised monthly. Updated August 2020.

Measures and advise may be altered at any time without notice due to the fluid nature of the pandemic.



We have been working closely with the venue in anticipation of welcoming our exhibitors and visitors to the Cake International.


It is essential that certain measures will be put into place and we will also require the support and co-operation from our exhibitors.

You will find the most up to date Covid-19 measures document available to view as well as a template risk assessment which is a requirement for all exhibiting companies and must be submitted prior to attending.

We must work together to create a safe and manageable environment, and adhering to the guidelines is imperative to enable our events to go ahead.



Following the news that events can recommence from 1st October we have been working hard to ensure that it is safe for all attendees at Cake International.

What safety measure are ICHF Events putting in place?

  • Additional onsite arrangements will be in place for ‘spotters’ to manage pitch points.
  • A deep cleaning routine will be agreed with each venue, high contact points such as theatres and workshops will be cleaned after each session.
  • Hand sanitiser units will be positioned outside the hall and around the show.
  • To maximise our visitors numbers whilst still following crowd density rules we will now only offer half day tickets, pre-bookable in advance.  VIPs will still be allowed to visit the show throughout the day
