Hilton is introducing a new program—Hilton EventReady with CleanStay—to address safe group travel practices and evolve today’s event experience. Hilton EventReady builds on the hospitality company’s CleanStay program, which was introduced in April.
“At Hilton, we’ve always believed in the power of in-person connections and take pride in the exceptional experiences our teams create in partnership with event professionals,” said Chris Nassetta, president and CEO, Hilton. “In today’s new normal, we know that people planning and attending events of any size are focused on their health and safety. Hilton EventReady delivers innovative solutions for the entire event experience—from flexibility in planning and physical distancing protocols to transparency in cleanliness policies and inspiring catering options.”
Key tenets of the EventReady program include:
Cleanliness Protocols | The program expands on the elevated sanitation standards of the recently-announced Hilton CleanStay program, addressing every touchpoint of the meeting experience. This includes room seals for guest and meeting rooms, sanitizing stations in public areas and meeting spaces and EventReady Room Checklist.
Book-to-Billing Flexibility | Hilton teams will work hand-in-hand with customers to align on shared objectives, providing:
- Flexible pricing, space options and contract terms;
- Responsive offers to meet the needs of customers, like simplified agreements for small meetings;
- Hilton EventReady Playbook, which delivers expert guidance and curated resources for solutions, such as Hybrid Meetings that seamlessly combine on-site attendees with those in remote locations, room sets, creative networking, transportations/logistics, and health and wellness considerations, breakouts and activities.
Safe and Socially Responsible Solutions | Hilton team members will partner with their clients to achieve the meeting’s objectives while addressing both health and environmental concerns. This includes presenting creative physical distancing meeting sets and meal service, developing inspiring food and beverage options, and sharing environmental impact solutions measured by LightStay, Hilton’s corporate responsibility measurement platform.
Hilton’s portfolio of 18 brands includes more than 6,100 properties with 977,000+ rooms in 118 countries and territories.
