Guidelines for re-opening business conference and event venues

Fáilte Ireland has consulted the industry to develop this set of detailed and practical guidelines to prepare business conference and event venues to operate safely. All of the principles in these guidelines are underpinned by advice made available from the HSA, HSE, FSAI, WHO and other relevant bodies.  

The operational guidelines will be regularly updated in line with Government public health advice as and when this advice evolves.  This includes any further guidance that is given following work by the Health Protection Surveillance Centre & National Public Health Emergency Team on the application of the existing social distancing requirements in specific, defined and controlled environments in the hospitality industry during periods of low incidence of the disease. 

Participation agreement

All Business Conference and Events organisations who apply for the Fáilte Ireland COVID-19 Safety Charter, must endeavour to work with tourism and hospitality businesses that have received the Fáilte Ireland COVID-19 Safety Charter, reassuring clients that all health and safety protocols are being followed to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Please note, as these guidelines are working documents, you may need to clear your cache to view the latest version.
