Keeping delegates safe has always been a key priority for event planners. However, now more than ever, with COVID-19 having a severe impact on the events industry, strict implementation of new and additional safety guidelines are paramount and must be adhered to and updated on a regular basis in line with ever changing ‘Tier’ rules.
This is a challenging time for the events industry and by keeping everyone well informed and up-to-date with all the changing government guidelines, event planners can have the confidence the hospitality and events sector will be able to deliver. We work closely alongside venues and event organisers to ensure we are on top of all the changes and keep an eye on the fast-moving situation as it is developing.
With the vaccination process in full swing, perhaps you’ve been asked to book an event for later in 2021 or 2022 and beyond?
We all want to kick-start our events timetable as soon as possible but need to understand that these have to be done safely and in a responsible manner.
Organising your first ‘live’ event, after so many months, may be met with some apprehension and a little uncertainty. Whilst there are no definitive answers as to how events will proceed, having a future-proof plan devised and ready to implement when necessary will ensure a successful and COVID-19 secure event for everyone involved.
Here are our thoughts on the things you need to consider to ensure you have a COVID-19 secure event for both the organisers and the audience and adheres to all the relevant restrictions in place.
Until we know for sure how events will re-emerge from the present global situation, it is extremely difficult to make plans with any degree of certainty. However, if this pandemic has reinforced anything, it is clear that people are craving to have human interaction again and live events will inevitably return, albeit a bit differently.
It is key that we are prepared and ready to get going again but in a safe and COVID-19 secure event environment.
