COVID-19 has had a major impact on the event rental, design and production industry. Planning a safe gathering means making adjustments to help prevent the virus from spreading – and many people aren’t quite sure how to proceed.
One smart step to take is to look into the available event rental options. Some companies, including In the Event, offer a range of products that can help safeguard guests and employees during the coronavirus pandemic.
Posting signs at the event venue entrance, in the restrooms and in other highly visible locations is an effective way to provide instruction on protective measures to stop the spread of COVID-19. Event rental companies can create signs that incorporate customized messages and state-of-the-art graphics, and you can also rent directional signs to assist with crowd control.
Encouraging event guests to maintain a distance of at least 6 feet apart is essential to ensuring everyone’s safety during the coronavirus crisis. Floor clings make this much easier to accomplish, and you can choose from several options – including clings with illustrative graphics and patterns as well as branded clings – to help promote social distancing.
Dividing the venue space may be necessary to keep crowds from forming, and many different types of decorative barriers are available. Faux boxwood walls, ropes and stanchions, LED wall panels and curved chalk walls are among the options that can be used to block off certain areas – and they can also serve to direct the traffic flow.
Placing a clear barrier between employees and event guests allows for interaction, yet also provides a shield against COVID-19. Event rental companies have see-through acrylic sneeze guards and sanitary barriers that offer an effective layer of protection, are easy to wipe down and are lightweight enough to move around as needed.
Using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer helps prevent COVID-19 transmission, so event planners are wise to make sure that guests and staff have easy access to the product. Free-standing hand sanitizer stations are convenient, and event rental companies offer customization to create a unique look or build brand awareness.
