Coronavirus (COVID-19) update
The IET has continued to closely monitor the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak and like many other organisations, our priority is to protect our staff, members, volunteers and everyone we work with.
We are continuing to follow the guidance set out by the UK Government regarding the COVID-19 outbreak. Following the latest government guidance, the IET has made the following decisions:
- Both of our venues, IET London: Savoy Place and IET Birmingham: Austin Court, are being prepared to reopen for events on 1 October 2020 adhering to social distancing measures.
- Our colleagues at Savoy Place and Austin Court are available to help with any queries. If you need to contact a member of the team, please email email@example.com for Savoy Place or firstname.lastname@example.org for Austin Court.
- Member facilities at both venues remain closed for the time being. Please check back for further updates.
The health and safety of everyone we work with and everyone who visits our venues is our priority. Here you can read our risk assessments.
