From local lockdowns to the rule of six; the Coronavirus is doing its utmost to make planning business meetings and events a challenge for even the calmest of PAs and event organisers. Something Valor Hospitality has really taken to heart. Whether arranging an AGM, communications meeting, long-term sales strategy or rolling out new policies and procedures for business survival, knowing where you can meet, what safety measures are in place and what contingencies there are for cancellations have all become vital elements in planning a meeting.
However, there is some news for meeting bookers and event organisers! Firstly, the rule of six doesn’t apply to business or education so a meeting for up to 30 delegates can take place. Secondly, with socially distancing and relevant Covid safety measures in place, event organisers, delegates, guests and hotel staff can all be confident that their safety is paramount.
It’s good to know that if you need to visit a venue to assess its suitability, guided tours also now have the green light of approval.
Now our partners at Valor Hospitality have a meet with confidence programme in place. This is encouraging delegates to “meet as teams not stare at screens” – something we can probably all relate to! It goes without saying, the hotels have high levels of cleanliness. Plus event spaces are operating with a clutter free feel to help with the wellbeing of delegates. In addition and providing added flexibility, Valor Hospitality is also operating a book now, meet later policy. This includes no cancellation or attrition fees.
Meet with Confidence
This flexible meet with confidence policy from Valor Hospitality is available to book throughout 2020. The meeting or event for up to 30 delegates needs to take place by the end of June 2021. Our Valor Hospitality partner hotels are located in Scotland and England. Read on to discover more about the meet with confidence partner hotels.
Meet with Confidence at Crowne Plaza Nottingham
This stylish hotel in the Midlands has 17 rooms available for meetings, ranging in capacities. The Crowne Plaza Nottingham has a conference planner too who can advise on the best meeting rooms to welcome delegates with social distancing.
Crowne Plaza Plymouth Meetings
Located in the city centre, and with stunning views of the harbour and seafront, is the Crowne Plaza Plymouth. With a total of six flexible meeting rooms, the hotel is a good choice for combining a meeting in person along with video conferencing. These types of hybrid meeting can be organised because the meeting rooms have state-of-the-art technology provided by Valor Hospitality. A hybrid meeting is a great solution for many companies because you can combine the best of both worlds. Firstly, some of your team are able to meet at the hotel to broadcast their communications to a larger audience. Secondly, as a result, the rest of the company (who are either working from home or socially distanced back at HQ), never miss an important company presentation again.
Meet at the Holiday Inn Peterborough West
Firstly, the hotel is only two miles from the city centre! Secondly, the Holiday Inn Peterborough boasts inspiring views over Nene Country Park. And importantly, the hotel is in a good location for road and rail transport links. Plus, this hotel is perfectly placed for Thorpe Wood Golf Course too!
The Holiday Inn Peterborough West offers a good choice of meeting rooms with varying capacities; selecting a room for up to 30 delegates to meet with social distancing isn’t a problem at this modern hotel. Furthermore, once the official business of the day concludes, delegates and guests can enjoy a round of golf too!
Crowne Plaza Solihull
A total of 12 flexible meeting rooms with video conferencing screens and free Wifi will keep delegates happy and socially distanced at the Crowne Plaza Solihull. Moreover, this Midlands hotel benefits from great access to the M42 and Birmingham Airport.
