Events change at Athenee Bangkok
Behavioural changes in the way meetings and events are conducted after the pandemic are being anticipated by The Athenee Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Bangkok, which is redesigning its meetings and events spaces to suit the demands of the new normal world.
Under the new setup, each function space will cater to about 50 per cent less in the number of guests compared to the original configuration, although the hotel will not charge the organisers or guests any more than the standard rates.
The hotel is predicting that the scale of meetings will become smaller in the short term, with video conferencing becoming increasingly use to reach larger audiences.
Temperature sensors, hygiene measures and crowd-control safety are designed for larger-scale events and are either already in place or being implemented.
Food and beverage provision will also be tailored carefully to the events in the provision of extra hygiene measures, with sanitary screens at the buffets and formalised arrangements for coffee breaks.
