In order to hold meetings, the venue had to be adapted to meet health and safety guidelines, with procedures put into practice including: cleaning and hygiene protocols, signage to guide traffic flows, social distancing at key points, hand sanitiser dispensers and hygiene points, and an individualised catering service.
Manuel García, chairman of the Iberian Live-Med Institute Foundation, in conjunction with Live-Med Iberia and organiser of Refresher Training in Primary Care for Family and Community Medicine, said: “Delegates were able to attend in safe conditions in the rooms and during the breaks, and we comfortably met our expectations for the event.”
The Conference Centre’s team has also established procedures to enable clients to hold meetings in a safe environment, complying with the recommendations and criteria established by the authorities and the industry.
Despite the general uncertainty in the industry, Valencia Conference Centre’s sales team have confirmed six new congresses and conventions, with 33 new dossiers opened, and seven new event bids presented. The Conference Centre’s also has 15 events still confirmed in the remaining months of 2020.
VCC managing director Sylvia Andrés, said: “The work carried out by the team and our strategic allies has ensured that the experience factor of those attending goes hand in hand with the feeling of being in a safe environment. This is the cornerstone for continuing to build a future based on a new approach to holding events, grounded not only in experience, innovation and technology, but also in safety”.
