Virtual events and meetings have been crucial for keeping business professionals connected during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, home offices may not always have the privacy or professional look and feel that event speakers rely on for polished presentations, and virtual attendees may want a more immersive event experience than a home environment can offer.
Radisson Hotel Group has designed an innovative way to use Zoom to help event organizers rethink large-scale corporate meetings and conferences as hybrid events. Zoom Rooms provides a no-hassle, all-in-one video conference room system at Radisson Hotel Group’s meeting venues, allowing attendees to gather in smaller, socially distanced groups and connect by video to other satellite meeting locations with one click.
Hybrid events offer a more convenient meeting solution that cuts down on the costs, risks, and environmental impacts of travel.
Rather than flying in attendees and speakers from around the world to a single site, organizers may opt to host smaller events at local venues and use video conferencing to broadcast the event to remote attendees and satellite locations.
“With travel restrictions limiting mobility for attendees, along with concerns about the viability of large gatherings, we are adapting our meetings and events solutions in order to continue to support event planners while ensuring the health and safety of their attendees,” said Gonzalo Carpintero, Radisson Hotel Group’s VP of operations and head of meeting and event transformation in EMEA. “We developed our hybrid meeting services in collaboration with leading technology brands such as Zoom to deliver engaging and highly interactive meetings.”
A few reasons Radisson Hotel Group is betting on this hybrid format for corporate events of the future:
“What differentiates Radisson Hotel Group’s concepts are our robust offerings and technology across all participating properties in our portfolio. This helps ensure a consistent experience across all remote locations,” Carpintero added.
Zoom Rooms transforms any area into a modern, easy-to-use, and powerful collaborative workspace. Zoom’s suite of meeting room solutions allows you to bring integrated HD video, audio, wireless sharing, and interactive whiteboarding and annotation to any room, with robust security settings to ensure a disruption-free meeting. Deliver a consistent meeting room experience that allows in-person attendees to easily connect virtually with participants across mobile, desktop, and room systems.
Radisson Hotel Group will pilot the program in 50 select hotels, with the goal of expanding to over 450 properties across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.
