Major hotel chains and meetings industry associations are releasing comprehensive policy and protocol statements in preparation for when face-to-face meetings resume.

They are covering everything from sanitary procedures to social distancing measures; even thermal readings of attendees/guests and denial of entry guidelines.

Is this the “new normal”—especially in the short term—meeting and event planners and the organizations they work for will have to adapt to? How will any regulations be applied in different locations?

Join Meetings Today and facilities, meetings and hospitality industry thought leaders in a video panel discussion to explore the post-shutdown possibilities and how you should prepare for them.

Participants will learn the following:

  • New safety and sanitary policies and protocols that facilities will offer to assure the public is safe.
  • Room sets that will be employed to assure proper social distancing.
  • How F&B and catering will be affected.
  • What new regulations may be applied
  • How design of meeting facilities will impacted in the future

This video panel will be conducted via a collaboration between the three business-to-business publishing brands of Stamats: Meetings Today, Buildings and interiors + sources.

It will feature subject matter experts from the meetings and events, commercial buildings and architecture and design professions discussing how the post-shutdown environment will impact multiple facets of the hospitality industry.
