Reports can be made either personally onsite to Faversham House staff or via: https://fav-house.ethicspoint.com/
Regardless of the reporting method, the name and/or company reporting a harassment incident will be held in the strictest of confidence. Onsite staff have been briefed to escalate incidents immediately.
DRESS CODE AT THE EVENT
All staff on exhibition stands are expected to dress with business and/or business casual attire. As a rule of thumb, exhibitors should ensure the attire of all staff they have on or around their stand (whether the exhibitor’s direct employees or their contractors) would be considered appropriate in a professional environment. In recognition of the many cultures and nationalities present at the events, attire of an overly revealing or suggestive nature is not permitted. Examples of such attire may include, though are not restricted to:
- Tops displaying excessive cleavage
- Tank tops, halter tops, camisole tops or tube tops
- Miniskirts or minidresses
- Second-skin bodysuits
These guidelines are applicable to all stand staff, regardless of gender, and will be strictly enforced. The Organiser reserves the right to request individual exhibition staff change their attire or leave the premises immediately if their appearance is perceived, in the sole opinion of the Organiser, to be offensive to other exhibitors or participants.
The Organiser shall be entitled to close a stand during build-up or exhibition open period if the exhibitor or sponsor, in the opinion of the Organiser, is displaying materials of an offensive nature. The Organiser reserves the right to clear out a stand and the exhibitor will bear any costs that may arise.
Event participants who are asked to cease harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately. If a participant or group engages in harassing behaviour, the Organiser retains the right to take any actions to maintain a positive event environment for all participants and staff. This includes expulsion of the offender from the event with no refund.
