Radisson Hotel Group has launched a rapid testing service for meeting and event attendees at properties across its EMEA portfolio.
The service will be available at participating hotels in partnership with Hughes Healthcare using a lateral flow antigen test kit. Tests will be administered by trained healthcare professionals on site at the hotel prior to the event/meeting.
The testing programme builds on Radisson’s 20-Step and 10-step Radisson Hotels Safety Protocol launched in 2020 in partnership with SGS, a leading inspection, verification, testing, and certification company. The Group’s Hybrid Rooms and Hybrid Meeting Solutions were also launched to assist clients in delivering a seamless event of any kind, from hybrid multi-site meetings to broadcasting events.
In addition, upon full implementation of the programme every hotel will be able to provide guests with the option to visit an easily accessible and affordable PCR testing location, either at the hotel site or in its vicinity, as part of Radisson Hotel Group’s partnership with SYNLAB and Eurofins.
“The ability to offer rapid tests for our guests and meeting and event professionals is the next step towards a safe return to travel and business for the meetings and event industry. By offering our guests and attendees peace of mind and confidence knowing they are in a safe and healthy environment, Radisson Hotel Group is continuing to innovate and expand our meeting and events offering, adapting swiftly and efficiently to new requirements,” said Chema Basterrechea, Executive VP & COO, Radisson Hotel Group EMEA.
“The new testing programme in combination with the Radisson Hotels Safety Protocol underlines our ongoing commitment to the safety of our guests, partners, and team members.”
