Covid-19 measures conference & events

The health and well-being of our guests and colleagues is always our top priority. We strictly follow the measures that the RIVM (National Institute for Public Health and the Environment) and Dutch government have announced for the Netherlands and keep a close eye on the protocol of KHN (Koninklijke Horeca Nederland). A dedicated project leader has been appointed to ensure we comply with all measures.

Below you can find the measures we have taken to provide you with a safe and comfortable experience on our conference and events facilities. We kindly ask you for your understanding and support. This overview is updated regularly, we advise you to have a look at it shortly before your event.

General

  • Keep 1.5 meters distance.
  • Our team is wearing a face mask in areas where the 1.5 meters distance is not guaranteed, to provide protection to you and themselves.
  • As announced by the Dutch government we need to register the contact details of all guests.
  • We ask the attendees to stay at home if they have (mild) cold-like symptoms. 
  • In case one of the attendees is starting to get cold-like symptoms during the stay, please inform us. We are in close contact with medical staff. 
  • Please follow the instructions of our team.
  • We have increased the frequency of daily cleaning at the public areas and touch points in the hotel even further.
  • We do not shake hands. Instead, we will welcome you the Japanese way: with a respectful bow.

Meeting space

  • To ensure the 1.5 meter distance between the attendees, we have adapted the number of attendees per meeting room. Please check our capacity chart for a complete overview per setting per room. 
  • We clean with stabilised Ozone water, which eliminates germs such as viruses and bacteria.
  • Hotel Okura Amsterdam has a PM1 fine dust air filter, which filters a major part of the viruses and bacteria from the air. Due to the high quality, this air filter is mandatory in hospitals and meets the ISO16890 standard and the EUROVENT certification.
  • The hygiene protocol is assessed daily and adapted to the latest information from RIVM.
  • Doors can be kept open to minimise contact points. 
  • Distancing guidance, internal signage and screens can be arranged upon request and will be adapted per event.
  • Next to our standard high cleaning service extra cleaning moments can be arranged upon request.

Food and beverage

  • Food and beverage stations will be set up at which service staff will provide individual assistance to attendees.
  • In the meeting room the attendees have their own individual water bottles instead of sharing water bottles with others. 
  • Adjusted menus are applicable to ensure quality as well as a safe work environment.
  • Kitchen staff is wearing personal protective equipment.
