Blog: Olly WehringLIWF & Distil and the threat of pig coughs

Olly Wehring | 7 May 2009

If, like ourselves, you are heading to London next week for the London International Wine Fair & Distil, you may be concerned about so many people in so confined an area as ExCel, as hysteria surrounding Mexican swine flu grows louder by the day.

Speaking to exhibition organisers Brintex earlier this week, it appears that they have this base covered.

A spokesperson for the company said: “A couple of areas that we feel are particularly worth highlighting are that of glasses and spittoons - further details can be found by clicking here. It is also planned that sanitizer gel will be made available to visitors at registration, glass collection points and in the servicepoints.”

One other thing to bear in mind, the spokesperson said: “Should any member of staff be suffering from flu symptoms they should not attend the event.”

We still await the first press release from any company attending the event who has been quick off the mark with possibly the best advertising opportunity to come our way in years.
