Covid Protocols On-Site

This week’s blog will be short and sweet. We felt it was essential to discuss on-site protocols and trends that we will be seeing during in-person events this summer and into the fall. However, events will have necessary protocols that must be followed to keep everyone safe. Let’s get into it!

On-Site Protocols:

With the transition into stage three, all indoor and outdoor events, concerts, sports games, and other forms of entertainment are finally back! But there are specific rules, protocols and regulations that must be followed so everyone can join in on the fun safely. Below are the exact safety protocols provided by the Ontario Government, specifically for Festivals and Outdoor and Indoor Events.

  1.  The number of members of the public in the outdoor area of the facility where the event takes place at any one time must not exceed 75 percent capacity.
  2. The number of members of the public in the indoor area of the facility where the event takes place at any one time must be limited to the number that can maintain a physical distance of at least two metres from every other person in the indoor area of the facility and in any event may not exceed 50 percent capacity.
  3. The number of members of the public at any particular outdoor attraction within the facility at any one time must not exceed 75 percent capacity.
  4. The number of members of the public at any particular indoor attraction within the facility at any one time must be limited to the number that can maintain a physical distance of at least two metres from every other person in the indoor attraction and in any event may not exceed 50 percent capacity.
  • Social Distancing of two metres at indoor and outdoor events must be maintained.
  • The person responsible for the event must post a sign in a conspicuous location visible to the public that states the capacity limits under which the event is permitted to operate.
  • For greater certainty, the person responsible for the event must prepare a safety plan.
  • Masks when walking between areas indoors, but not at tables when eating.

It’s a new week, so that means a new blog post! Today, The Debonair Team decided that it would be valuable to focus on the importance of having experienced staff and vendors working your events.Putting an event seems simple enough sometimes, however we can confirm there is a lot more going on behind the scenes than meets the eye. Two overlooked aspects of event planning are 1) who works the event, and how they must have experience, and 2) The importance of vendors – vendor relationships are built over time and properly managed, collaborated and mastered to help clients create unique experiences, custom to their needs through food, beverage, entertainment and more. So, let’s get started!

Why is staffing important at events?

When working with an events team like Debonair, you get access to a team of event staff that are professional, knowledgeable and experienced when it comes to event execution. Staff like ours will appropriately represent your company, brand or organization while also allowing you, the client, to enjoy the event and leave the work to us! On top of this, event staff must be reliable and flexible. Because our team deals with various types of organizations and companies, that means our events are completely different every time. Because of this, it’s crucial that our team is flexible and  knowledgeable so they can help attendees with any questions that arise. Having reliable staff is  detrimental to an event’s success. When hiring staff that is outside of an events team or agency, they may not know exactly what is needed from the event planner or the event itself. Having reliable staff can reduce the workload on a planner and allow them to oversee the entire event. 

What about vendors?

Reliable vendors are a key part of events. Having a reliable network of vendors  that has access to exactly what you need to create your vision can make or break an event.  There is no way we can create an event without the help of many, we have worked hard over the year building and strengthening relationships with a plethora of vendors all over the world. Mistakes happen all the time at events, but even if it may be the mistake of a hired vendor, it’s a reflection on the event management team. It is important to go in as a team mentality, we never point blame, if one aspect fails, we all do. Which is why we strive for success in ALL aspects of an event. Whether it’s finding the perfect cuisines for your gala, or trying to find appropriate entertainment for your company’s work retreat, our team goes beyond just Debonair. We’ve built everlasting relationships over the years that help us continue to grow as a company. 

No matter the event type, it’s always important to identify the importance of having great staff and vendors. Whether it’s simply having someone to help your attendees with any questions or concerns or creating experiences through food or entertainment, properly managed and hosted events always push the envelope for a great moment.
