Long before lockdowns and intensive Covid-19 health and safety protocols, event planning was already a complicated beast of burden. However, with ever-changing restrictions, event planners have had to be even more diligent and creative to deliver on meaningful events for our valued guests.
Hosting an event during Covid-19 oftentimes demands hybrid models of communication, evolving knowledge about provincial and regional public health restrictions, and an unyielding dedication to cleanliness and well-managed social distancing. With that said, Vintage Hotels and our event specialists continue to create superior experiences for individuals and organizations who want to host impactful team retreats, business meetings and celebrations.
Why now is the time to plan your event
For many months, we all delayed our events and milestone celebrations because we were waiting for Covid to be over. Now that the virus and its ongoing restrictions appear to be here to stay, we can no longer afford to keep putting off important meetings and team-building experiences.
By strategically planning an event that aligns with safety best practices without skimping on any of the essential elements of a superior corporate event or celebration, you can completely change the forecast for your year from so-so to superb and successful.
Bring your employees back together within a safe and sophisticated event space and reinvigorate their creativity and collaborative spirit.
Things to keep in mind when planning an event during Covid-19:
- Ensure you have the technology available (and working properly!) to support attendees who will not be there in person
- Confirm your event venue understands and will comply with all the social distancing and health and safety precautions to protect your guests
- Consider how you can keep everyone comfortable by leveraging a venue that offers larger meeting spaces, outdoor meeting spaces and breakout rooms.
- Organize food orders ahead of time and plan out seating that enables social distancing
- Respect the fact this may be many people’s first time travelling since the pandemic, so collaborate with your venue to ensure every single process is handled seamlessly and prioritizes comfort levels above all else
