Hilton EventReady with CleanStay

clean stay promise

As part of its partnership with RB, Hilton has developed EventReady, a global meeting and events program designed to create event experiences that are clean, flexible, safe, and socially responsible.

  • A cleaning protocol checklist is completed to verify an event space is sanitized and disinfected thirty minutes prior to the start of every event or meeting.

  • High-touch areas in event spaces – including tables, chairs, door handles, podiums, and AV equipment - are disinfected with additional protocols.

  • Sanitizing stations have been added to primary entryways and key high-traffic areas, including event spaces, meal and beverage service areas, public restrooms, and congregating areas.

  • Floor plans must be submitted to the hotel and approved prior to the meeting or event, and vendors must comply with all safety standards.

  • Contactless experiences, customized meeting sets, and regulated meal services have been implemented to respect physical distancing.

  • The hotel has implemented innovative disinfection technologies, including electrostatic sprayers, to thoroughly sanitize surfaces.
