Royal Horticultural Halls doubles WiFi capacity
The Royal Horticultural Halls (RHH) has announced that it can now host hybrid events after doubling its Wi-Fi capacity. The venue has also introduced a number of health and safety measures to ensure it is Covid-19 secure.
In addition to doubling the venue's Wi-Fi capacity, RHH have also placed Ethernet ports around the venue, with a separate port in the organiser’s office to ensure organisers and attendees can be connected to the internet.
RHH has also put Covid-19 assured risk assessments in place, in addition to individual schemes of work for each event.
Venue sales manager, Rhiân Pressley, said: “In this ever-changing situation, it’s important to show that we are going above and beyond to ensure events can return safely to the Halls. We’ve used the Visit England Industry Standard as a guideline and have the ‘We’re Good to Go’ accreditation plus we have taken further measures. We’ve already held distanced examinations doubling capacity by using the Lawrence Hall concurrently with the Lindley Hall.
“External events are now the mainstay of our business and the way they run could change forever. I see it as our duty to make it work in a number of ways for the wide variety of clients we service, from conferences, exhibitions even sales.”
Other health and safety measures put in place by the venue include a temperature-monitoring terminal which also detects mask wearing, and new cleaning methodologies for all areas of the venue. Additionally, a third-party company will provide all first aid cover during events, and event equipment will be cleaned both before and after every event.
Pressley concluded: “We’re looking forward to the green light from Government. Venues can operate with the these new guidelines, now it’s time to get going.”
