29 JANUARY 2022



With the recent announcement of changes in COVID-19 legislation, we request that visitors to the Expo take personal responsibility for the benefit and welfare of themselves, their friends and other members. We therefore strongly recommend that all visitors, including those who are fully vaccinated, consider taking a Lateral Flow Test (LFT) before attending the Expo and not attend if positive.

We are also asking visitors to continue to wear a mask covering the nose and mouth while in the seminar rooms, exhibition hall and theatres as well as whilst transiting through the conference centre and hotel. Although this will no longer be a legal requirement we would like your help in ensuring the continued well-being of members, visitors, British Skydiving and hotel staff.  

Unless exempt, you are still legally required to self-isolate following contact with a known case of COVID. Even if vaccinated, you should not attend the Expo after such a contact unless you can comply with the official Government full daily testing advice. 

We are continually monitoring the Government guidance and the current procedures may be subject to change at short notice. Please check the official Government guidance.

For further information please see the COVID FAQ.

Skydive the Expo from British Skydiving is the biggest consumer skydiving event in the world. This must-attend free event features exciting and educational talks from some of the biggest names in our sport, as well as our legendary exhibition of all the main manufacturers and gear dealers.

Throughout the day, catch up with all your friends from around the world, attend the seminars, talk to the people that make your gear and even pick up a bargain.

Don’t miss the annual awards, celebrating great British achievements in skydiving, as well as the awesome free prize draw.

The evening features a formal black-tie dinner for those that fancy it, the more informal meal in the hotel restaurant for those that don’t, or a plethora of takeaways, all of which lead into the most epic skydiving party of the year with live music and a DJ into the early hours of Sunday.

Skydive the Expo is held at the De Vere East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham and is easily accessible from all parts of the world.

See you there!
