Radisson Hotel Group is launching a rapid testing service for meeting and event attendees at properties across its EMEA portfolio. The testing program builds on the Radisson Hotels Safety Protocol launched in 2020. In addition, upon full implementation of the program every hotel will be able to provide guests with the option to visit an easily accessible and affordable PCR testing location, either at the hotel site or in its vicinity.

Radisson Hotel Group’s new testing program is an extension of the Group’s 20-Step and 10-step Radisson Hotels Safety Protocol launched in 2020 in partnership with SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing, and certification company, recognized as the global benchmark for quality and integrity, as well as the Group’s Hybrid Rooms and Hybrid Meeting Solutions to assist clients in delivering a seamless event of any kind, from hybrid multi-site meetings to broadcasting events.

The rapid testing service for Meetings & Events will be available at participating hotels in select countries across EMEA in partnership with Hughes Healthcare using a lateral flow antigen test kit.

At the time of launch, the following countries are included: Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Moldova, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, Turkey, Russia

"The ability to offer rapid tests for our guests and meeting and event professionals is the next step towards a safe return to travel and business for the meetings and event industry”, said Chema Basterrechea, Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer Radisson Hotel Group EMEA.
