To provide ease, confidence and reassurance to safely return to face-to-face events, we’ve introduced pre-event, onsite, rapid COVID-19 antigen testing for meeting and event attendees, further enhancing the comprehensive Hotels Safety Protocols, which are already in place in all hotels. To provide this service, we partner with leading healthcare providers to make the option available in 23 countries in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Together we are delivering a reliable solution that you can trust for your future events.

What we provide


Through our healthcare partner, we will provide the point of care test kits (rapid antigen lateral flow) and ensure all tests are administered by trained healthcare professionals who meet local requirements.

The convenient tests can be performed on the day of the event, before attendees enter. Our hotel team will optimize the planning together with you to minimize total required pre-event time. Rapid antigen tests are performed right on site by the healthcare professional(s), in a dedicated and safe area of the hotel, and results are returned in just 15 minutes (up to a maximum of 30 minutes). The rapid tests provided by our healthcare partners are amongst the best performing on the market and meet the WHO requirements in terms of accuracy, specificity and sensitivity.

How it works:

From start to finish, you can rest assured knowing that that your attendees in a safe environment, with in-depth cleaning and disinfection procedures, physical distancing, thoroughly sanitized meeting spaces, protective equipment, and updated training for team members.
