Accor has announced that 135 hotels in its brand portfolio in Northern Europe have introduced ‘ALL Meet Well’, aimed at boosting client confidence in booking meetings and events and keeping delegates safe and well.
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. Planners that book meetings and events with Accor will also be able to take advantage of Reconnect, a new initiative to kick start live event programmes.
Reconnect offers planners and agents the following added value for MICE bookings in hotels across the UKI and Benelux:
*Double ALL Meeting Planner Points
*Flexible meeting space in accordance with government guidelines on social distancing needs
*Flexible and transparent contracts with applicable COVID -19 clauses (UK hotels)
*1 in 10 free on day or residential delegate packages
*Agents: commission paid on deposit at the time of payment
*No cancellation fees for up to 50 delegates if the meeting is cancelled at least 14 days in advance
*Applicable to new meetings and events and Group bookings from 1st September 2020- 31st May 2021
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. Our Reconnect campaign will enable agents to enjoy multiple benefits and book with confidence at Accor hotels.”
