Guidelines for re-opening business conference and event venues

The tourism and hospitality sectoral guidelines, aligned with the Work Safely Protocol, have been developed collaboratively to assist businesses to apply guidance to their operations. The guidelines are informed by the latest Government public health advice and related regulations. 

The guidelines are regularly updated by Fáilte Ireland to reflect Government Public Health advice and related regulations. 

This includes any further guidance that is given following work by the Health Protection Surveillance Centre & National Public Health Emergency Team on the application of the existing social distancing requirements in specific, defined and controlled environments in the hospitality industry during periods of low incidence of the disease.

Participation agreement

All Business Conference and Events organisations who apply for the Fáilte Ireland COVID-19 Safety Charter, must endeavour to work with tourism and hospitality businesses that have received the Fáilte Ireland COVID-19 Safety Charter, reassuring clients that all health and safety protocols are being followed to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
