As restaurants, cinemas, and recreation centers slowly start to re-open with safety measures, many people are still concerned about hosting events and get-togethers.
The concern here is not just regarding hosting an event that is safe, but getting attendees to follow social distancing guidelines at all times. As it isn’t human nature to stand or sit 6 ft. apart and have a conversation, event managers and planners are thinking of new ways to encourage social distancing and still host a great event.
If this is something you’re also worried about, Glamorous Event Planners and Productions have brought together 4 tips to make an event successful during the social distancing era!
We know how difficult it can be to have your guests wear masks during an event. However, when it comes to custom masks, your guests may appreciate the gesture and detail and would want to wear them. So make sure that you have custom masks at your event and that they are readily available to each of your guests. You may customize the mask with your logo, your initials, the guests’ initials, or even a quirky quote about social distancing!

Moreover, custom masks have become the new trend these days. You see them all around weddings and other get-togethers where the bride and groom each have their masks on with their initials or simple bride and groom on matching linen.
Plexi Table Dividers
If you think your guests won’t be comfortable sitting far apart, trying to have a conversation, try a plexi glass table divider. The plexi glass table divider will ensure that your guests are safely seated at one table with less chances of disease transmission. With the table divider they would still be able to engage in a conversation and stay safe. Win-win!
While you’d be able to separate guests at a single table, how do you separate various tables from one another? Easy! By strategically placing foliage or other décor in between tables to create distance.

The foliage or décor would add more creativity to your event while you’ll be able to keep your guests safe as well.
Contactless delivery is becoming the norm these days, and this is something you can incorporate in your event as well. Think about ways you can have a contactless serving portal where caterers could place plated meals and guests can help themselves as dinner or lunch is served.

Don’t forget to pair these self-serving portals with a sanitizing station as well!
