Postponement of NOA Annual Members’ Conference and Awards


The health and safety of attendees, presenters, and event support staff remain a high priority.

We’re excited that the NOA Annual Conference 2021 will be an in person event and have chosen a venue that has many COVID-19 precautions in place which you can read about here.

Keeping in mind the government’s ‘Stay Safe Guidelines’ please read through our COVID 19 guidelines to ensure everyone feels safe and secure during the conference:

  • Stay home if you are unwell
    • If you are showing any of the main symptoms of COVID-19 please do not travel to the venue. The main symptoms of COVID-19 are: a high temperature, a new continuous cough and a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

      For further information please visit the NHS website at,

  • Plan ahead
    • Please ensure you plan your visit before you arrive at the venue. Familiarise yourself with the programme and, where possible, decide in advance which sessions you wish to attend. This will help to keep you safe and contribute to the safety of others around you. Also plan how to get to and from the venue by checking any relevant travel advice or restrictions.
  • Lateral Flow Test
    • You are requested to carry out a rapid lateral flow test 48 hours prior to your arrival at the venue. Visit the NHS website to order your free rapid lateral flow test kits at Do not forget to record your rapid lateral flow test results on the GOV.UK website!
    • Physical Distancing
      • We are requesting attendees to maintain social distancing of at least 1-2 metres to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
  • Face Coverings
    • Face coverings are currently not mandatory in England.  We ask that where a distance of 1-2 metres cannot be maintained, or in areas of poor ventilation, masks are worn to protect yourself and others. We may ask you to wear masks during some sessions. This may be at the discretion of the speaker, because of poor ventilation, or crowding.
