COVID-19 Information

Assurance with Events

 

We look forward to welcoming our clients back to Keele University Events and Conferencing venues in 2021.

The team at Keele University Events and Conferencing have been working with the University Teams to create their COVID-19 Policies and Guidance to ensure they are ready to go with conference and events from 2021 onwards.

We are and continue to follow the UK government guidance for COVID-19, at the same time providing our customers with the confidence to plan their conference and events with Keele in 2021 and beyond.

All our COVID-19 information can be found on our website providing you with all the information you need about how we will manage your events at Keele University Events and Conferencing venues.

Our dedicated team of event professionals are working with our clients to ensure the safety of all your attendees and we now offer a range of alternative solutions to deliver a successful event.

Keele University Events and Conferencing have also achieved accreditation across a number of industry bodies reflecting the preparation work we have done to give you the confidence in hosting your conferences and events at Keele.

Our event guarantee – flexible bookings

We know that you will have concerns about booking events in a world where day-by-day anything can change what you have planned. At Keele University Events and Conferencing we want to put your mind at ease by introducing a flexible approach to bookings.

For any new meetings or events confirmed with us moving forwards, we promise that should they subsequently be unable to go ahead due to COVID-19 we will transfer your booking to a mutually agreeable future date penalty-free. As an added assurance we will make no change to the previously agreed rates if rebooked before the end of July 2021. (please note terms and conditions apply)

Our Capacities have changed

The current situation has created an impact on capacity within all of our meeting spaces, and with Government Guidance on social distancing, we need you to be aware that in some areas the capacity has reduced to 25% of its normal delegate or guest numbers. Fortunately, many of our spaces are flexible and can be opened up to another space where a good safe flow can be adhered to.

We will of course work closely with you to ensure the safety of all your attendees and we will offer alternative solutions to deliver a successful event.

Hybrid Events and Virtual Streaming

We pride ourselves on our enhanced technology and forward-thinking solutions. Each of our conference and meeting rooms are equipped with presentation facilities and Wi-Fi, with repeater screens available in our larger spaces if required. Conference phones are available for delegates to dial-in.

Most of our spaces have virtual tours available on our website which you and your delegates can see prior to your event.

We are also pleased to offer a live video streaming bolt-on available with any booking. This not only allows you to manage larger delegate numbers by allowing guests to attend digitally in a hybrid event it also provides an opportunity for you to increase the reach of your event by attracting additional attendees from around the world. For a wholly virtual experience we are working with partners that can provide a fully managed solution. Ask a member of our friendly team for further details.

Whatever option you choose, our dedicated events team will be on hand to provide advice and guidance to maximise how you use our equipment and partners for your event.’

We have a range of COVID-19 event information which can be downloaded to assist you in your event planning and for delegates to plan their arrival to Keele Hall.  These are updated regularly to reflect the changes in the advice from the UK Government in relation to conference and events.

It’s the Keele difference!
