Radisson rolls out new testing programme for meetings and events

Radisson Hotel Group has launched new comprehensive testing programmme across its EMEA portfolio of hotels offering a rapid testing service for meeting and event attendees at properties.

The testing programme builds on the Radisson Hotels Safety Protocol launched last year.

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.

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 inspection and certification company SGS.

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.

Guests staying at Radisson properties can also have access to convenient and affordable PCR testing, as part of Radisson Hotel Group's partnership with SYNLAB and Eurofins.

SYNLAB offers a clinical laboratory and medical diagnostic service. In addition, selected hotels will offer PCR testing on location for groups or individuals, or self-sampling PCR tests via the Group's partners.

"The ability to offer rapid tests for our guests and meeting and event professionals is the next step towards a safe return to travel and business for the meetings and event industry. Radisson Hotel Group is continuing to innovate and expand our meeting and events offering, adapting swiftly and efficiently to new requirements,", said Chema Basterrechea, Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer Radisson Hotel Group EMEA.

The programme is currently available in multiple EMEA markets including Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland, UK, Turkey, and Russia.
