Savoy Place’s digital capabilities allow visual consistency throughout the venue, or individualised branding in each event space through easily adaptable LCD screens, projection screens and LED walls, sustainably reducing the need for printed materials as well as offering a professional backdrop for both live and virtual events.
Recent investment in the Riverside Room makes social distancing easier and reduces the need for delegates to move around, with new video walls (3.5x2m) and 98-inch screens to ensure that everybody in the room has full visibility, regardless of room layout. PTZ cameras allow speakers to be filmed from any challenging angle, with the picture relayed around the room.
The largest flat-floor space in the venue, the Riverside Room is well ventilated and perfectly placed with outside balconies overlooking the Thames.
High-speed Wi-Fi network
The venue’s Wi-Fi options come in different packages with internet speeds up to 100mbps (or 500mbps in specific circumstances), and additional dedicated Wi-Fi which clients can name and password-protect exclusively for delegates.
To facilitate online meetings and new hybrid packages, the structure of the networks has been renovated.
Levels of priority and dedicated bandwidth have been set specifically to secure connections and ensure reliability, so the reputation of clients is not at risk by technology failing them.
Fully risk assessed
Following detailed risk assessments, venue staff have been trained on social distancing competency and hygiene measures in line with government guidelines to deliver secure events and help keep delegates and organisers to feel safe onsite.
Savoy Place has been awarded the meetings industry association’s AIM-Secure accreditation as well as Visit Britain’s Good To Go status.
Fogging disinfection is carried out by specially trained GCC operatives in all high-risk areas of the venue and all anticipated precautions such as sanitising stations, one-way systems and staggered arrival times are being adhered to.
The spacious central London venue is well positioned on the River Thames to offer visitors a variety of transport options if joining an event in person, with easy walking access from mainline train stations.
