Accor, the leading augmented hospitality group, today announced that 135 hotels in its brand portfolio in Northern Europe* have introduced ‘ALL Meet Well’, a new initiative to enable meeting and event planners to restart live event programmes.
Accor’s ALL Meet Well initiative provides double ‘ALL meetings planner’ points, flexible meeting space in accordance with government guidelines on social distancing and no cancelation fees for delegate groups of up to 50 people if the meeting is cancelled at least 14 days in advance. Working closely with the Meetings Industry Association (mia) and the government, Accor will also provide Covid-19 clauses in contracts.
ALL Meet Well includes a series of measures to protect planners, delegates, guests and employees: on a daily basis cleaning routines will be carried out during evenings and lunch breaks, including disinfecting light switches, door handles, chairs, tables, hangers and consoles; vacuum cleaners will be equipped with HEPA filters; and cleaning checklists will be provided to the event organisers prior to meetings taking place.
All meetings and events will be run in line with ALLSAFE, Accor’s global cleanliness and prevention programme. New meetings, events and group bookings made from the 1st of September 2020 – 31st May 2021 will include ALL Meet Well benefits.
Dana Lewis, Director of MICE & Leisure, Accor, Northern Europe, said: “ALL Meet Well provides meeting and event planners with the flexibility and hygiene commitment they need to restart live meetings and events with confidence. Every aspect of the delegate’s MICE experience at the hotel has been considered and extensive measures have been taken to protect our planners, delegates, guests and employees. Building trust among our clients is paramount to us, especially in such uncertain times.”
Richard Short, Health, Safety and Environment Director, Accor Northern Europe, said: “Despite lockdown measures being progressively relaxed across the world, the health and safety of guests, delegates, meeting planners and staff remains the number one priority for us. Accor has successfully implemented extensive ALLSAFE protocols to safeguard the health and wellbeing of guests, and now we can extend these to live meetings and events. We want to ensure that when planners organise an event with Accor they feel completely comfortable and safe in the hotel of their choice.”
