As our in-person events resume this fall, rest assured that influence group’s top priority is ensuring the health and safety of our attendees, staff and event partner crews.

Our safety team has created a comprehensive plan that underscores a range of measures (outlined below), in addition to the basic protocols of promoting good hygiene practices. We remain informed about the ongoing situation at both the national and destination-local levels, and are closely monitoring the regulations and guidelines with regard to group meetings/ events setup and safeguards, in order to keep abreast of changes and adjust our implementation and onsite operations accordingly.

As we get closer to the event, all or some of these measures will be implemented in line with government and health authority regulations and recommendations in effect at the time, and will be clearly communicated in advance and reiterated at different points in the preparation process to all involved with the event, along with the policies and protocols of the host resort. 

Note also that the range of measures is a fluid list that we will continue to review, evolve and edit as necessary in accordance with the pandemic situation.

Onsite Health Measures:

  • Requiring proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 test results taken within 72 hours of arrival
  • Contactless registration
  • PPE kit for each attendee
  • Sanitizer stations throughout meeting space
  • Observation of recommended distancing, density control and capacity reductions through room/ seating arrangements and furniture configurations
  • All presenter audiovisual equipment changed and disinfected in between sessions
  • Extra time built-in to the agenda for disinfecting and sanitizing meeting rooms, and ‘hygiene breaks’ (handwashing, fresh air)
  • Optimal scheduling of outdoor space usage
  • Clear re-iteration of onsite policies and protocols in-app and on signage throughout
  • Signed COVID-19 Release Waiver
  • Advanced preparation and coordinated protocol with local authorities and medical offices in place should an instance of COVID-19 arise during the event
