Hyatt Together by Hyatt
Global hospitality brand Hyatt has announced ‘Together by Hyatt’, a suite of offerings designed to help event planners as they return to events globally.
Through this initiative, Hyatt is promising simpler and streamlined event planning services with attendee safety at the forefront including rigorous sanitizing and hygiene standards, modified spaces for social distancing and Covid19 testing and verification systems.
To promote its virtual and hybrid events platform with hybrid meetings at hotels, Hyatt has collaborated with Swapcard. Virtual hotel tours will enable planners to tour a hotel from their home or office. They can place requests directly to the hotel team in real time through an Event Concierge app and use Group Bill to add all event charges into one bill.
Jack Horne, Global Head (Sales and Revenue), Hyatt, said, “Throughout Covid19, we have been intensely focused on listening to our customers and while we’ve heard that there are many challenges, more importantly, we’ve heard that planners are excited about the opportunities to come back together during recovery and beyond. We’re here to help planners explore the possibilities and reach their attendees in creative and impactful ways. As a new suite of meetings and events offerings, ‘Together by Hyatt’ is designed to support planners at every step of the way as we reimagine what events can look like and collaborate to bring their vision to life.”
Steve Enselein, Senior Vice President of Events, Hyatt, said, “While events will look and feel different, we believe there is pent-up demand to create, connect and collaborate, whether that’s in-person or a hybrid format, and once again experience the joy of what it means to be together. Guided by our purpose of care, every aspect of ‘Together by Hyatt’ is intended to provide a seamless experience for planners so they can focus on delivering exceptional events for attendees. We’ve taken strategic steps to bring safety, technology, support and wellbeing to the forefront of our offerings, and we are here to co-create the path forward, which we believe lays the foundation for a new era of events that will be more inclusive than ever before.”
Hyatt has also partnered with the Global Biorisk Advisory Council and the Virtual Events Institute to sponsor event planners interested in taking courses about planning hybrid events and health and wellbeing.
Through ‘Together by Hyatt’, the chain is promising simpler and streamlined event planning services with attendee safety at the forefront.
