A firm who specialise in event management and logistics has announced they are partnering with healthcare company Roche to roll out a new rapid COVID-19 testing service specifically designed for the events industry. The partnership between Swallow Events and Roche will provide a first of its kind service for UK organisers, enabling gatherings and parties to take place COVID safe.
Swallow Events will offer MHRA and CE approved testing which can produce results in just 15 minutes. Event organisers can purchase either a full pop-up testing service operated by government approved healthcare professionals, or simply order a supply of the rapid testing kits which can be shipped globally.
Speaking about the partnership, Oli Thomas; Founder of Swallow Events has said:
“We are very proud to announce we are the first events company in the UK to offer an on-site rapid testing service for COVID-19 in as little as 15 minutes, which, we believe, is a complete game changer.
Our rapid testing kits – a market leader (which meets MHRA target product profile with sensitivity: 96,52% & specificity: 99,68%) used in conjunction with track and trace data-collection and other COVID secure protocols such as touch point and temperature checks will help event organisers in all sectors from large scale festivals, concerts, stadia, business conferences and trade shows through to agricultural shows and small boutique festivals.
It will kick start a £39.1 billion contributing sector to the UK’s economy whilst helping to protect over 570,000 full-time jobs which are rapidly disappearing.”
