Hear from American Meetings, Inc. President, Todd Bludworth, on how corporate meetings will change post-COVID-19 and the changes you can expect going forward across the corporate meetings and events industry. From social distancing, fewer attendees, and new technologies… Overall you can expect cleaner and wider spaces, along with more sanitation in your new corporate meeting venues.
Social distancing measures will be encouraged. This means venues may find themselves using larger spaces to accommodate fewer people. You should take into account these larger spaces when budgeting.
Remote pay stations and technology will likely play a larger part in event management.
Some hotels have already announced their new health and sanitation measures, PPE for attendees, and additional signage may be recommended or mandated to educate participants. Shared space such as registration tables, bell carts will be wiped down more frequently. More staff trained in proper sanitation procedures are likely to be working events and may even be more visible or prominent.
Buffet style meals will likely be replaced with to-go or cash and carry models. In-room dining may become a better option for attendees. Open-air and outdoor spaces will likely be more popular to help with adequate airflow
Overall look for cleaner and wider spaces and more innovations from those of us in the meetings industry.
