Radisson Hotel Group announces Covid testing programme for guests, meetings and events

Radisson has become the first hotel group to roll out a rapid testing service for meeting and event attendees at properties across its EMEA portfolio.

In addition, every hotel will be able to provide guests with an optional, accessible and affordable PCR testing location, either at the hotel site or in its vicinity.

The rapid testing service for meetings and events will be available at participating hotels in the UK and elsewhere in partnership with Hughes Healthcare using a lateral flow antigen test kit. Meanwhile, guests staying at Radisson properties will have access to PCR testing through a partnership with SYNLAB and Eurofins.

Chema Basterrechea, executive vice president and chief operating officer, Radisson Hotel Group EMEA, said: "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.

"By offering our guests and attendees peace of mind and confidence knowing they are in a safe and healthy environment, Radisson Hotel Group is continuing to innovate and expand our meeting and events offering, adapting swiftly and efficiently to new requirements. The new testing programme in combination with the Radisson Hotels Safety Protocol underlines our on-going commitment to the safety of our guests, partners, and team members."

Radisson Hotel Group has more than 1,500 hotels in operation and under development in 120 countries and more than 100,000 employees. Its brands include Radisson Blu, Radisson Red, Park Plaza and Park Inn by Radisson.
