With the UK moving into the “delay” phase of the Coronavirus pandemic, the safety and well-being of our employees, customers and partners continues to be a top priority for Ivanti worldwide. We are actively monitoring the COVID-19 Coronavirus situation closely and will react appropriately to the changing landscape moving forward. At this time, Ivanti is following the World Health Organization’s and NHS recommendations.

We have taken the decision to cancel Ivanti Interchange Las Vegas and are postponing the Interchange Unplugged events in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

Q: Are any Ivanti events cancelled due to Covid-19 Coronavirus?

If there are further changes to our events, we’ll be sure to update this post and contact event registrants.  In addition, we are seeing some of the third party events and tradeshows we usually attend, being cancelled or postponed.

Q: What is Ivanti doing to prevent the spread of this and other flu viruses?

A: Ivanti is following the guidelines recommended by the World Health Organization, NHS and the UK and Irish governments.  We are monitoring these guidelines in terms of keeping employees safe and, in addition, we are actively working with all venues hosting Ivanti events to ensure extra measures are being taken to clean and disinfect common surfaces and offer hand sanitising stations in high-traffic areas.

The travel and hospitality industries are keenly aware of the health and safety concerns and are making every effort to do their part in providing clean, hygienic meeting environments, wherever possible.

Q: What can I do to avoid contracting the virus?

A: The World Health Organization recommends basic hygiene practices such as regular hand washing and covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing. The UK government provide further advice:

  • Thoroughly cooking meat and eggs
  • Avoiding close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing
  • Throw tissues into closed bin immediately after use or sneeze/cough into your elbow
  • If you have fever, cough, and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early.  Anyone with these symptoms should self-isolate.
  • When hands are not visibility dirty, frequently wash using soap and water, or if this is not available, regularly use hand sanitiser.
