COVID-19 AND OUR HYGIENE CONCEPT
THE COVID-19 LOCKDOWN – WHEN SLOWING DOWN SPEEDS UP CREATIVITY
One thing we have learned over the years in our industry is that however well you plan ahead, it’s impossible to foresee everything. Bad weather and flight delays are always factored into our plans. In fact, you could even say they’re part of our ‘daily routine’. A global pandemic, on the other hand, is impossible to predict.
When unexpected setbacks throw us off track we put our creative heads together to rethink our options, and then decide what to do next. The add on team made a collective decision to keep going, to look ahead to the future, to stay passionate and, most importantly, to support our clients through these difficult weeks and months!
When will we be organising our next international incentive trip or a kick-off event for 900 guests again? We can’t answer that question. What we can do, however, is to develop a plan that makes it possible for everyone to hold an event in a pandemic – with a concept tailored to the circumstances that nevertheless fires client and guest emotions just as much as a regular event would.
The global Covid-19 situation necessitates effective hygiene and infection prevention measures – especially at events. We have already begun to educate ourselves about these issues so that we have the knowledge to put all relevant safety precautions in place at future events.
Our colleague Lara has completed a hygiene training certification programme for clubs, trade fairs and events at the DEKRA Academy, which means we now have a certified specialist on the team.
“The hygiene training programme particularly focused on safety and hygiene-oriented planning, the drafting, implementation and review of hygiene plans, event implementation and the delegation of specific tasks to responsible individuals.” (Lara Nordt)
The add on team now has the necessary expertise to continue offering our portfolio of services to clients during this pandemic. Among other things, we can prepare special hygiene plans, digital self-declarations for participants and optionally extendable technical solutions for the venues, such as smart access control, indoor routing and distance control. We also make sure that all relevant criteria, from official safety regulations for events to GDPR requirements, are taken into account.
Our top priority is to minimise the risk at the events we implement and ensure that an integrated health protection concept is in place to protect everyone involved!
