The Meetings Industry Association has launched a tool enabling venues to manage the tracking and tracing of delegates, as part of its ongoing reopening support for the sector. Free to mia members featuring enhanced hygiene and infection prevention controls – the dedicated miaTrustedTrace tool enables venues to manage delegate contact information easily and safely.
All venues will need to do is access the tool from the mia’s website and, as part of the event planning process, load the necessary event information. The system, which has been developed by the wedding planning platform ‘Guides for Brides’, produces a link to a dedicated event area which can then be shared with the event organiser to ensure all the relevant delegate contact information is collected correctly.
On the day of the event, the venue can use the system to cross-check the delegate list accordingly, to ensure a precise record of attendees is held. After 21 days, the data will be automatically deleted in-line with GDPR regulations. However, should an attendee test positive in the meantime, all delegates can be notified in an instant to take appropriate precautions.
This latest tool follows hot on the heels of a number of other reopening resources launched by the mia for the industry.
