Delta Variant Best Practices for Attendees


October 6, 2021 // Educational Series

Fearing Covid? Move Forward with Tools to Keep Your Attendees Safe

The myriad of challenges presented by COVID-19 and its variant strains can be incredibly daunting for any company to handle alone. metroConnections understands that the safety of your event’s attendees is of the utmost importance, and their team of experienced staff will help you develop a plan that takes every precaution to mitigate the risks stemming from the Delta variant.

Safely navigating complex and uncertain variables require two key qualities: preparation, and agility. To the former, it’s crucial that your company reach out to metroConnections to begin the process of planning your event much further in advance than you might be used to.

“The earlier a client reaches out to us, the easier it is for us to tailor a plan that can account for factors like social distancing within your event,” explains Sydney Wolf, Vice-President of Sales for metroConnections.

Another piece of the preparation puzzle involves taking a hard look at your event plan to decide which pieces of your programming can be accomplished safely–and which pieces will require an alternative. Armed with an industry-wide perspective and the ability to creatively employ a broad range of services, metroConnections’ staff will help support you through the tough calls.

“We’ll provide you with the information you need to decide whether to institute precautions like mask or vaccination mandates,” assures Wolf, “Plus, we’re able to think outside of the box and offer our clients solutions that they might not have considered.”

For instance, Wolf says that many clients have been choosing to utilize metroConnections app development acumen to create dedicated digital platforms for their event that offer safety-enhancing conveniences like contactless event registration. Others are opting to shift portions of their programming to a hybrid-virtual presentation model, while maintaining the option of in-person attendance for key meetings or speeches.

“It’s not just during business hours either, we’re helping companies get creative with their happy-hours and employee mixers as well,” explains Wolf, “We’ve coordinated scenic outdoor picnics with individually packaged meals, or arranged gift-basket drops at a socially-distanced block of employee hotel rooms.”

Most importantly of all, metroConnections’ team will see your event through from start to finish. They have the agility and forethought to work through a series of contingency plans to help you do your best to keep employees safe, should the need arise. No matter how daunting the challenge, you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes from working with a trusted partner like metroConnections.
