10 Tips to Safely Host a Corporate Event in the New Norm

This guest post helps us understand what clients are requesting and how they suggest hosting physical events while keeping people safe! Thank you The Ortus Club!

Every country has been hit differently from the recent pandemic and virtual events have been a great alternative to somewhat continue with marketing plans. But as some governments start to open up and enter the new normal, companies are keen to start hosting physical events again.

We spoke to The Ortus Club to understand what their clients are requesting and how they suggest hosting physical events while keeping people safe.

10 Tips to Safely Host a Corporate Event in the New Norm:

  1. Measure everyone’s temperature at the entrance. This goes without saying and should be followed by all venues anyway.
  2. Do not pass a microphone around. Instead, provide enough for everyone or install a microphone that people can walk up to and speak from without touching anything. You can also encourage people to ask questions virtually.
  3. Use apps and social media for interaction. For now, say goodbye to photo-booth and interactive features that require physical contact. Use apps to control activities remotely.
  4. Say no to extra guests and only invite strictly relevant people. Attendees often want to bring a plus one: be it their colleague, their partner, or their assistant.
  5. Assign specific seats with name tags and limit people from walking around too much.
  6. Discourage shaking hands.
  7. Stay away from self-service buffets to limit people from sharing cutleries and getting near other’s food.
  8. Adopt a ‘no mask, no entry’ policy. Masks should only be taken off while eating.
  9. Select top venues and ensure they are following safety protocols.
  10. Record every participants’ past itinerary and travels as well as contact numbers.

Of course, we still recommend the best course to events is to host them online as much as possible.

So are you ready to host events in the ‘new normal’? Do you have other suggestions?
