COVID-19 testing resources added to Hilton playbook

i By March 9, 2021 No Comments

COVID-19 testing and health screen resources for people attending events at Hilton properties across the United States have been added to the hospitality company’s EventReady Playbook.

“As more customers book in-person meetings and events, there has been a steady increase in requests and questions around COVID-19 testing and screening options for event attendees,” said Frank Passanante, senior vice-president, Hilton Worldwide Sales, Americas. “In response, we expanded the resources within our Hilton EventReady Playbook to include third-party providers that can deliver a seamless experience and offer preferential pricing to our event planners.”

Beginning this month, Hilton’s event planner partners who book or have booked an event at any U.S. property will gain access to the EventReady Playbook, which will include the list of third-party providers that can provide a variety of testing and health screening options for COVID-19, including:

  • Handheld temperature check devices
  • Personal health screening checklists
  • COVID-19 self-testing options
  • COVID-19 same-day, onsite testing

The COVID-19 testing and health screening options are presented to event planners as the latest evolution of EventReady with CleanStay, Hilton’s global cleanliness and client service program specific to meetings and events.

The provider list, as well as examples of how planners can combine the options for their events, will be included within the Wellness section of the EventReady Playbook. Introduced this past summer and continuously updated based on evolving needs, the proprietary EventReady Playbook presents event planners with expert guidance and curated resources that address event planning solutions, including the recently expanded hybrid events section.

The press release announcing the addition of the testing and screening resources to the Playbook explained that Hilton has been listening and responding to the needs of planners who are looking for ways to simplify the complex task of organizing in-person or hybrid events in the current environment.
