Warwick Conferences launches re-opening strategy

Warwick Conferences has unveiled its strategy to keep event organisers, delegates and staff safe while hosting events and conferences, as it continues its preparations ahead of re-opening on Monday 6 July.

Detailed in its brochure – Keeping You Safe – the venue has set out plans to reinforce its already-exceptional standards, while explaining new guidelines when running events at its facilities.
Social distancing will be made easier thanks to clear signage and floor markings throughout each building, while its large, spacious venues and outdoor spaces will allow for a comfortable experience for all guests. The capacities of its rooms have been altered to ensure work stations are two metres apart, while a comprehensive cleaning approach, which includes stringent protocols, are also set out in the guest guidelines.

Paul Bartlett, Director of Warwick Conferences, commented: “We have been working hard behind the scenes to ensure no stone has been left unturned as we prepare for reopening our facilities to events and conferences. Our guests can be assured that the high standards that were experienced prior to the lockdown will be enhanced.

“Our award-winning catering services now include a pre-packed grab-and-go offering, which will be served on sustainably sourced disposable items. We will also be offering room service, where possible, as well as using our vast outdoor spaces for BBQs and picnic lunches, continuing our promise of tailoring bespoke event experiences to our customers.”

Among the services available to guests will be Warwick Conferences’ outdoor spaces, including the Woodland Retreat, which was launched last year. The team has also invested in plug-and-play 360 camera technology to support smaller events. This new service will allow board meetings to take place in a hybrid environment, with the camera automatically detecting who is speaking in the room, which can then be broadcast to those unable to attend physically via an online platform.

Another change at Warwick Conferences will see the launch of its virtual conference solution. Utilising the skills and expertise of its Event Production team, Warwick Conferences can offer a live-streaming service with its broadcasting studio. Additionally, hybrid solutions are available, meaning a live event can be streamed to remote delegates, and keynote speakers can be streamed into the conversation, if they are unable to attend.

Paul added: “Creating experiences within events, meetings and conferences remains one of our top priorities. Our new guidelines and robust reopening strategy mean positive experiences will continue, as we look forward to opening our doors once again to customers.”
