We’re returning to in-person meetings!
…and we’re pretty excited about it.
We also want to reassure all of our members and partners that we remain committed to making your Hive onsite experience as safe as possible. The steps we’re taking to do this:
In the lead up to our in-person meetings, you can expect:
Communication – Open lines of communication with both our members/partners and venues to ensure all parties are up-to-date with the current government guidelines and our internal plans. We will send specific venue/meeting guidelines to all attendees approximately 7 days before the meeting.
Testing and Wellbeing – All attendees (including our internal staff) will need to provide evidence of a negative lateral flow test, taken immediately before our meetings. In some cases, we will be asking attendees to provide evidence of being fully vaccinated; this is venue specific and will be communicated separately. If you are showing signs of COVID symptoms then please do contact us to let us know you will not be able to attend the meeting.
Enhanced Cleaning and Hygiene – At all of our meetings, we will undertake enhanced levels of deep cleaning both before and during the meeting. We will also provide additional hand sanitising stations throughout the venues.
Social distancing – During our roundtable discussions we will be limiting the number of people to 10 per table. In the case of our venues that are accessed via lift, we will be limiting capacity in these spaces to adhere to social distancing.
Physical Contact – Unfortunately no handshakes or hugs! The new ‘norm’ of greeting business partners will apply.
Meals, snacks and refreshments – We are working with all of our venues to provide the usual delicious, quality brain food the hive meetings are known for but in a pre-packaged option. We will also be providing all attendees with their own personalised cup to use throughout the day.
Our commitment to you doesn’t stop when the meeting is finished, and we ask the same of you in return. Should you test positive for COVID within 10 days of the meeting, please inform us within 24 hours and we will update all of our meeting attendees.
* All of the above is subject to change based on any update to the venue and/or government guidelines.
