The past few months have been challenging and have meant that we have had to become a lot more creative in all of our approaches, especially in the event & travel industry.
With Germany going back to the new normal in more and more areas, hotels, restaurants, venues and bus companies are developing concepts on how to safely host corporate groups in the nearer future.
In Berlin, where it is possible to hold meetings with up to 150 participants already, the Axica Congress Center set up a complete event showing industry leaders how an event would work considering the current health & safety regulations. This “test event” was successfully organised by Visit Berlin.
Koelnmesse, a major German fairground based in Cologne published a very detailed health concept which will apply for all fairs and congresses as of September 2020.
In Hamburg and Munich most hotels re-worked their seating concept and thus are now able to welcome business groups for meetings and workshops. Whereas Hamburg already digitalised their major tourist event, the annual harbor birthday party in May, Munich is working on ideas how to organise an Oktoberfest despite the cancellation of the original one in September.
Frankfurt venues and hotels offer virtual site inspections for all clients who are currently not able to visit them in person. Frankfurt Convention Bureau is handling these virtual visits and thus make Frankfurt approachable for everyone who is planning an event in the Main Metropolis.
Germany’s structure with its 16 federal governments and individual regulations makes it challenging for anyone to know which rules have to be met, how many participants can join a meeting and which health measurements have to be taken. Conference & Touring works closely with all suppliers and provides the respective information for any aspect of the client journey in the requested destination upon sending the offer to their clients.
