It’s been a whirlwind for the past several weeks. The uncertainty in our state, our country, and the world during this pandemic has been challenging. Globally, businesses have been impacted due to Covid-19, where the events industry has been devastated.
As we continue to navigate in our ‘new normal’ for event gatherings, our commitment as your Event Planning Firm is to operate in full transparency, basing our strategic plans and guidance on the best information provided by the CDC, public health organizations, as well as elected officials.
Our Current State of Preparedness
We are enhancing our Emergency Contact Information survey for Core Client Groups (i.e., client support team, immediate family, wedding party) and contracted Vendors / Special Guests (i.e., Guest speakers, entertainment, and all on-site service providers). This is our commitment to supporting the “what-ifs” that are part of our current Event Continuity Plan, further enhanced to support the management of your event.
We are creating Health and Safety Education for our Event Managers, Assistants, and Associate Planners, based on the CDC’s guidance, to help protect you and our team. Meetings will continue to be held virtually until we have secured our level of preparedness internally which will include PPE for necessary in-person, socially distant, meetings.
We are in constant contact with your venue and catering teams to craft a Safety & Sanitization plan for your event when the time comes, as directed by local governmental requirements.
Guidance of events going forward will be an ongoing conversation, as we stay up-to-date on social distancing best practices.
Understand, we will advise you as best as possible if/when such guidelines affect the current plans for your event.
Instead of personal or political views that may exist for COVID-19, we are focusing our efforts by implementing the necessary best practices and guidelines as it relates to protecting ourselves, our vendors, as well as our clients.
