While many of us have gotten used to holding meetings remotely over the past year, connecting through a screen just isn’t the same as a face-to-face interaction. This shift towards virtual hosting has been especially hard for hotels that rely on business meetings, conferences and other live events for a substantial part of their revenue.


Some of these hotels are starting to plan for a hybrid meeting model to make in-person events possible again in 2021. Hybrid meetings give participants the option of either attending in-person or through advanced video conference technology. This model helps make social distancing easier for live events and also provides participants with flexibility if they are not willing or able to physically attend.


While free video meeting services are ubiquitous, professionally produced hybrid meetings use more sophisticated audio/visual setups to ensure that remote attendees are able to fully participate in the event. Quality hybrid meetings may also require hotels to reorganize or even renovate some of their event space to accommodate these types of gatherings. Hotels and conference centers should start planning for these changes now and begin developing protocols and procedures so that they will be prepared to offer hybrid meeting options as restrictions begin to be lifted.


Such policies call for creative solutions for everything from social distanced seating arrangements to food and beverage service. They should also include the highest quality purification and sanitizing procedures, which is where Pure can help keep in-person participants healthy and comfortable. Pure uses the same anti-viral and anti-microbial protection in Pure Rooms to make ballrooms, conference rooms and other event space available in ways that they haven’t been since last year.


Our systems include advanced surface sanitation and purified air that reduce 99.99% of viruses, bacteria, allergens and other particles. Business travelers who are able to attend an in-person meeting will experience the highest level of protection during the event. Pure meeting spaces eliminate contaminants to create a hypoallergenic environment for both comfort and peace of mind.


Health and safety don’t end when the meeting is over. In-person attendees can finish their day by returning to a Pure Room, which wellness-minded travelers have trusted for more than a decade. With state-of-the-art air purification and allergy-friendly bedding, Pure Rooms provide the very best guest room experience for business travelers.


Pure can help create a seamless wellness experience where attendees feel confident that they’re working and spending their down time in the healthiest environment available. To best ensure your hotel is prepared for the new wave in event production, contact us at Pure Wellness to learn how we can help you to support hybrid meetings in 2021.
