A year after the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, our business has started hesitantly to recover, even though it is still directly dependent on the current epidemiological situation. We had to transform our events in order to make them possible without endangering the lives of both participants and organizers.
We have confidently imposed “hybrid“ events, at which we have a few present participants in the hall while the complete program is being filmed and transmitted live via the internet (video streaming). In this way, our events have reached a broader audience and even increased their impact.

It is extremely important to note that venues play the main role in reviving the event industry. They focus on three significant aspects in order to provide adequate measures for safe events guarantee: they implement disinfection and hygiene protocols, organize safe meals, create regulations for distance keeping.
Disinfection and hygiene protocols
Strict disinfection and hygiene procedures are the most important aspect. During their preparation, all local sanitary authorities’ measures are taken into consideration.
Social distance is ensured by organizing separate entrances and exits, special signposts for directing people flow. The allowable halls’ capacity is significantly decreased due to health measures.
Food is served in three ways: at buffets being served by personnel behind plastic shields, serving individual portions, or packed food. We choose spacious halls for catering or open spaces whenever possible.
Events’ venues do play an enormous role in the event industry’s revival. Due to our colleagues’ efforts, we can again hold so essential for people live events, without endangering lives of both participants and organizers.
