It’s a challenging time for the world and even more so in the meeting, events and conferences landscape but when ALHI reached out to Globalworks Events & Destination Management to help prepare for their Executive Women in Leadership 2020 conference in Naples, FL at the Naples Grande Beach Resort, the team provided a well thought out plan to make everyone comfortable while adhering to strict CDC social distancing guidelines to make the event a success!
Globalworks proudly sponsored the decor and general session set-up while tapping fellow Hoffmann Family of Companies member Naples Transportation & Tours to provide transportation needs utilizing their “Safer With Us” protocols to ensure the health and safety of all attendees.
Strict social distancing protocols were followed for both the dinner event and general session the following day. All vendors were temperature checked when they arrived and wore masks and gloves during set-up. Additionally, all the seating was sanitized and wrapped prior to arrival to the venue. General session seats were spaced 6 feet apart and dinner featured only 3 people at a 72″ round which normally holds 10-12.
What would seem like a lot of empty space was beautifully brought together by the Globalworks team and noted by contributor JT Long of SmartMeetings.com stating:
While all the diagrams I had seen of 72-inch rounds with three lonely little chairs poking out seemed sterile, special touches made all the difference. Low, floral centerpieces around the talking point of storytelling allowed everyone to see eye-to-eye.
It occurred to me that when the same table hosted 10 people, most conversations involved only the couple of people immediately around me. And I always wondered if those seated across the way were having more fun than me. Triangulating like this actually seemed more intimate, in a way.
I was eager to see what the meeting room would feel like. I had seen pictures of a grid of straight-back chairs spaced out like bumpers in a pinball machine. This was very different. The light, warm space was filled by Globalworks Events & DMC with a variety of comfortable soft seating, padded bucket chairs and side tables that were assigned for the duration of the conference with name tags, just as you would see a at a fancy dinner. Rugs and plants added even more warmth.
