EIF Statement On Insurance, Supplier Concerns and EIF Guidance Update

AFO currently holds the chair of EIF.

The forum have today put out the following statement

Conversations are continuing with the Government over the need for them to underwrite insurance if events are to go ahead this summer. While we had hoped to hear something by now, the view is that this is very much on the table still.

Supplier Concerns:
Despite repeatedly urging the Government to provide more support for the supply chains in the outdoor industry, there was little good news in the budget. This week EIF will be addressing the Business in COVID All Party Parliamentary Group on this issue and about insurance.

EIF Guidance Update:
An updated version of the EIF/DCMS guidance on organising safe outdoor events in a COVID world is currently going through the Government approval systems. We hope to launch it in a week or so and will notify everyone as soon as it is available
