Planning a holiday event in 2020 shouldn’t mean breaking a sweat to achieve the safety standards of the New Normal. It only means that they are to be celebrated in an alternative manner with additional scrutiny given to venue and attendee safety. Now, when it comes to New Years’s Eve parties, we daresay that a majority of your audiences are waiting with bated breath to bid 2020 a hearty goodbye.
As an event presenter or a venue owner, you’d want to organize a special one for the last event of the year without breaking social distancing norms. Which is why we’re here with our social distancing checklist for a smooth New Year’s Eve 2020.
1. Don’t Overshoot Your Budget
We get it, you want to end the year on a high note, just make sure you don’t end up splurging more than you can recover. However, knowing the uncertainty that comes with organizing events in the current economic climate, we’re live with our COVID Recovery Offer that gives you a FLAT 40% Off on Ticketing Fees. We never want you to feel held back when you can very well go the extra mile with Yapsody.
2. Be Venue Wise
Unsure about choosing the appropriate venue? Here are 6 Types Of Live Events That Are Social Distancing Friendly. Apart from knowing events that are safe to be organized you also need to match the venue design with your audience density, especially when it comes to dealing with New Year’s overcrowding. The audience preferences are pretty clear as a majority of them are preferring mandatory face masks with 6 feet distancing.
Make sure that your logistics team designs event spaces to reduce crowded spaces and create enough space to move around with dedicated sanitization portals.
3. Your Catering Style Will Set You Apart
It’s that one element that works as a social glue and can truly set your New Year party apart. Now, with the pandemic how does one go about handing event catering that complies with the highest standards of safety?
Stick to a specific type of catering staff depending on whether you’re going for a buffet, sit-down dinner, or a cocktail party. Overcrowding at your events is a strict no-no hence you need to figure out a distinct dining style that is conducive to social distancing.
4. Monitor Contact Sensitive Spaces
Increase your frequency of personal hygiene and effective hand-washing among staff and attendees.
This could be via social media, staff awareness, and communicating this message to attendees before or on arrival. Having a clear escalation plan for dealing with such situations needs to be laid out well in advance. Learn more about Event Safety Regulations Expected By Attendees.
