Tracking Reopenings: A Guide to Planning Your Corporate Offsite by Country, State, and Venue

In the ever-evolving landscape of COVID-19, it's essential to keep track of the status of venues, hotels, and destinations. With many countries and states reopening and closing their borders and businesses frequently, meeting planners need to stay up to date with the latest information to plan corporate offsites effectively. This article will provide tips on how to track reopenings by country, state, and venue.

  1. Check the Local Government Websites The first and most crucial step in tracking venue and destination reopenings is to check local government websites. Most countries and states have dedicated COVID-19 pages that outline the current situation in the area, including restrictions and guidelines. These pages often provide up-to-date information on the reopening of various industries, including hotels and event venues. It's essential to check these websites regularly for updates and changes.

  2. Consult Travel Advisories and Industry Associations In addition to local government websites, there are many travel advisories and industry associations that provide valuable information on reopenings. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) are excellent resources for global travel advisories. Other associations like the Meetings Mean Business coalition and the Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA) also provide regular updates on industry reopenings and guidelines.

  3. Use Online Resources There are many online resources available to track the reopening of venues and destinations. One such resource is the Cvent Supplier Network. The network allows planners to search for and compare venues by location, capacity, and availability. It also provides up-to-date information on the status of venues, including whether they are open, closed, or operating with restrictions.

  4. Utilize Social Media Social media platforms like Twitter and LinkedIn are excellent resources for tracking venue reopenings. By following local government accounts, hotels, and industry associations, planners can stay up to date with the latest news and developments. Additionally, planners can use social media to connect with industry peers and share information about reopening status.

  5. Reach Out to Local Contacts Finally, meeting planners should consider reaching out to local contacts in the areas they plan to hold their events. These contacts may include hotel sales managers, destination marketing organizations, or convention and visitors' bureaus. Local contacts can provide valuable insight into the reopening status of various venues and destinations and may be able to assist in the planning process.

In conclusion, tracking venue and destination reopenings is essential for meeting planners looking to plan corporate offsites in the current climate. By following local government websites, consulting travel advisories and industry associations, using online resources, utilizing social media, and reaching out to local contacts, planners can stay up to date with the latest information and make informed decisions about event planning.
