Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced Together by Hyatt, a new suite of events solutions designed for planners as they return to in-person meetings. The program features four pillars, all based on “care”:

Care + Safety: reimagined meeting spaces from socially distanced room setups to signage to care stations with personal protective equipment; accreditation by established authorities; and testing and verification

Care + Technology: a partnership with Swapcard, an online events provider, that will provide an end-to-end virtual and hybrid events platform that unifies on-site and virtual experiences.

Care + A Community of Experts: featuring help from hybrid event experts, a support squad to asset with virtual components, certification for planners and resource guides

Care + Wellbeing: partnerships with Miraval resorts to integrate wellness into events; and with Headspace to offer mindfulness and meditation elements to conferences. Hyatt is also evolving its culinary offerings to bring food and beverage experiences to attendees — whether on site or remote.

Steve Enselein, senior vice president of events, said that while events will look and feel different, “we believe there is pent-up demand to create, connect and collaborate, whether that’s in-person or a hybrid format, and once again experience the joy of what it means to be together.”
