Edgbaston unveils safe events promise

Edgbaston Stadium’s events team have revealed its Safe Meetings & Events Promise to existing and prospective clients who plan to stage meetings, conferences and events at the iconic cricket ground from next month.

Reopening from Monday 6 July, Edgbaston Events has created a six-point plan that has been designed to provide greater reassurance to all delegates in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

  • Space and Social Distancing – all rooms having outdoor spaces, the introduction of strict social distancing measures and clear signage and guidance around the venue
  • Hygiene and Cleanliness – new and improved cleaning procedures and providing a high level of hand sanitiser dispensers
  • Contact Free Catering – pre-packaged food and drink prepared on-site with increased safety and maintaining Edgbaston’s outstanding range of fresh produce
  • Enhanced Technology – increased options for clients, including video conferencing, live streaming and virtual tours
  • Staff Fully Trained – all staff working to new operational procedures and have PPE tailored to their role
  • Communication – regular updates from our events team throughout the planning process

Maria Jones, head of conference & events sales at Edgbaston Events, said:

Our 6 July reopening date is something that we’ve been working towards throughout this lockdown period, and these new working plans have been developed following close consultation with our established clients, our partners within Compass Group, Lime Venues Portfolio and Levy Restaurants, and our technology partner PTI.

We pride ourselves as being a business that regularly innovates and constantly assesses new market opportunities. As a result of this process, our suppliers are providing new technology to meet the changing needs of our clients who wish to stage hybrid or virtual events.
