Radisson Hotel Group Announces New Comprehensive Covid-19 Testing Program For Guests And For Meetings And Events
As part of its ongoing commitment to the safe return of travel and to allow for a swift return to business, Radisson Hotel Group has launched its new comprehensive testing program as the first hotel group to roll out a rapid testing service for meeting and event attendees at properties across its EMEA portfolio.
The testing program builds on the Radisson Hotels Safety Protocol launched in 2020. In addition, upon full implementation of the program every hotel will be able to provide guests with the option to visit an easily accessible and affordable PCR testing location, either at the hotel site or in its vicinity.
The comprehensive testing program for all guests is groundbreaking in its coordinated approach across EMEA to reinstall confidence and peace of mind to travelers as the world returns to business by providing a safe environment and seamless testing facilitation.
Radisson Hotel Group’s new testing program is an extension of the Group’s 20-Step and 10-step Radisson Hotels Safety Protocol launched in 2020 in partnership with SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing, and certification company, recognized as the global benchmark for quality and integrity, as well as the Group’s Hybrid Rooms and Hybrid Meeting Solutions to assist clients in delivering a seamless event of any kind, from hybrid multi-site meetings to broadcasting events.
The rapid testing service for Meetings & Events will be available at participating hotels in select countries* across EMEA in partnership with Hughes Healthcare using a lateral flow antigen test kit, proven to be one of the most accurate and best performing in terms of sensitivity and specificity.
COVID-19 Testing Options include:
- COVID-19 rapid antigen testing offered by a specialized third-party testing provider and administered by a trained health care provider on site at the hotel prior to the event / meeting
- Access to PCR testing locations in the vicinity of the hotel
