Hybrid Technology Solutions – How is the UK adapting?
With in-person meetings and events restricted in 2020, many venues have turned to hybrid event technology in order to offer planners alternative ways to continue to connect, meet and do business.
In the UK, many leading venues have reimagined their offerings, giving planners access to advanced technology solutions to ensure their future events achieve greater reach and engagement. Edinburgh International Convention Centre, the leading convention center located in the Scottish capital of Edinburgh, who launched its ‘Make it Edinburgh Live’ hybrid events solution in spring 2020. Or, explore leading conference venue Manchester Central who partnered with Sterling Event Group to launch ‘Live from the Auditorium,’ a virtual event solution that provides an interactive live streaming experience.

We’re Good To Go and Safe Travels
The ‘We’re Good to Go’ industry standard is a key initiative to safely welcome back events when the time is right. In the UK, more than 45,000 tourism and events businesses to date have registered, demonstrating that they are adhering to Government and public health guidance. Businesses signed up to the scheme can also now automatically make use of the World Travel & Tourism Council’s Safe Travels stamp, recognizing the standard of protocols and processes the UK has in place. The WTTC stamp enables planners and delegates to recognize destinations around the world which have adopted global standardized protocols so they can experience ‘Safe Travels.’
