Meet Cambridge and its venues are following the official Government and Public Health England advice about the COVID-19 outbreak.  A number of our venues are permitted to operate throughout this new period of Lockdown and we can still check availability for you for future events; we'd be delighted to hear about any plans that you have. 

Safety First

You and your delegates can be reassured that our venues have been working hard to implement and adopt rigorous new safety and hygiene measures to ensure that organisers and delegates are safe and secure. 
 

A number of our venues have obtained AIM Secure accreditation, this is recognition and endorsement from the Meetings Industry Association (mia), the leading trade association for business, meetings and events.  This accreditation indicates a total commitment to upholding legal compliance and health and hygiene protocols and it is awarded following a rigorous assessment process.
 

 “We’re Good To Go” is the official UK mark to signal that a tourism and hospitality business has worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and has a process in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing.



Socially Distanced Meetings

Our venues are following the official Government and Public Health England advice about hosting meetings and events following the COVID-19 outbreak.

You will find that room styles will differ and capacities have been reduced in order to comply with social distancing measures. All venues will require attendees to follow social distancing rules, this may involve using different entrances and exits or it may mean that catering facilities are a little bit different from how they used to be. At the time of writing, face coverings will be also be required in all meeting rooms and contact information will need to be provided to the venue for track and trace purposes.

As the situation is changing daily, our venue representatives will go through everything with you before your event with the most up-to-date guidance, so that you know what to expect on the day. It's also important to ensure that any protocols and regulations are shared with your delegates too so that everyone can work together to stay safe. 

Hybrid Meetings & Events

As we start to meet up again, you may find it necessary to link with other destinations or other venues as a way to bring all of your delegates together. The majority of our venues will either have in house technology to enable this type of hybrid meetings to take place or they will be able to advise on local suppliers who can work with you on your event plans.  If you require technology to deliver a hybrid event, just let us know and we will note that specification on your enquiry. 

The City

The #StaySafeCambridge campaign is encouraging city centre visitors to keep a 2-metre social distance and in during this next period of Lockdown, all non-essential shops, bars, cafes, and restaurants will be closed.
