Corona proof events; what is possible now?

News article – juni 2020

Corona proof events; what is possible now? Fortunately, our events industry is slowly starting to pick up. So events can be planned and organized again. We regularly read in the press about hopeful actions and initiatives of event companies and online and hybrid events are already in organizational mode. And that is of course fantastic! But… many event professionals are still lookinf for answers. “When can I start booking again? For how many persons? What exactly is possible? And where can it all be held?

A platform such as Evenementorganiseren.nl helps with this. Then you don’t need to look thourgh thousands of different websites. However, such a platform remains dependent on what the locations and agencies themselves communicate. This is the reason for UP Events to list all our corona proof events and possibilities in one overview. Use it to your advantage!

Online team building games

We notice that people are going to the office more often. But only if this is possible according to the Government guidelines, in shifts and without using public transport. Actually, no team is working complete together yet, so meeting online remains “normal” for a while. You still miss a lot of contact and each other. Project Arrow, Hackathon and Project Pegasus are 3 new online & corona proof team building games that you can use to bring your team, department or entire company together again. It can be played anytime, anywhere. Project Arrow is extremely hilarious, Hackathon for the diehard puzzlers and Project Pegasus is a thrilling escape game.

All UP Events games are personally supervised by enthusiastic game leaders. Project Arrow can also be partly adapted to your own company with your own questions. And you can combine each game with a tasty lunch box that we send to the participants at home. You play a game from €19,95 per person excl. VAT.

Locations & meeting rooms at 1.5 meters

The UP Events event site is 35,000 square meters. This means there is plenty of space for corona proof events at a 1.5 meter disctance. We enjoy being flexible and can place a stretch tent for shade or rain for example. Bad weather does not really exist, because you can prepare well for everything.

In addition, at UP Events you can choose from 10 different indoor locations. The most booked spaces are Hangar 4, Hangar 5, Hangar 6, Hangar 7 and Beach clubs 1 & 2. For each of these locations, the maximum capacity per room has already been determined and photographed by us, so you can orientate yourself well via our website. So don’t forget that we can expand any space with canopies; so please call us to discuss.

Hybrid corona proof events

Hybrid events, virtual events, partly online, digital live streams of events; however you would like to call or organize it. It is possible at UP Events. You invite part of your guests to our location, and the rest participates online. We provide a qualitative way to share your content with interaction and connection. We provide the live stream from our location. And we unburden you in the organization of the breakout sessions and recordings. We like to think along with you outside the box & corona proof so we create a strong event.

The confrestival

A conference + festival. Especially now an excellent option; because you can be outside with your guests as much as possible. Your conference will take place in smaller groups, where guests will be divided between the various indoor and outdoor locations. If desired, we can cover these outdoor areas for shade or rain. And everyone is 1.5 meters apart.

Combine knowledge transfer with a casual festival setting. In between the sessions, we provide food, drinks and fun activities. All RIVM guidelines are followed. You will find the right atmosphere, good food, good music, fun activities and a festival site at UP Events. And we provide the unforgettable conference experience.

Activities & team building

Outdoor sports is allowed again. To ensure that you quickly find what suits your event, you will find a handy overview of corona proof activities on our website. For example, you can play bubble football, laser tag, achery tag, jeu de boules, beach volleyball, survivor and archery with your group. And do your creative workshops such as painting, clay head sculpture your colleague, wooden shoe art and graffiti. But also music workshops such as boom whackers, percussion, djembe and silent disco belong to this list. All these activities have been adapted to the RIVM guidelines, all material is thoroughly disinfected before each use.

UP west Amsterdam

UP west arose during this corona time; a new hangout in Amsterdam for the consumer market. Thanks to the size of our area, it is very suitable to offer space to which there is always too little of it in Amsterdam: a terrace in the sun. And sun all day. The kitchen is designed for (vegan) burgers, second life sandwiches (yes!), drinks and snacks. And because UP Events is a flexible partner for event managers that can work fast: within 2 weeks the concept was ready, including menu, recipes, ordering process, layout and communication. Feel free to take a look at the UP west website, and don’t hesitate to com and have a corona proof to beer with us and chill in a hammock!

Schools, sports clubs, children’s parties & summer camps

UP Events is primarily a business event location and agency. However, given the diverse possibilities of the location, children’s parties and kids summer camps are often organized here (during the May and Summer holidays). This is a solution for many working parents, because you will also be completely unburdened in this. Children up to and including the age of 12 do not have to keep a distance of 1.5 meters from each other. And now almost all schools and a number of sports clubs are also able to find UP Events for their own corona proof events.

Wedding venue

Did you know that you can also organize a very nice festival wedding? We still have to wait until we can meet again with a few more guests, but are you in trouble with your schedule, because everything had to be postponed because of the recent times? Think of UP Events and come and see the location.

Corona proof events in the winter

UP Events is open all year round in Amsterdam West for your events. Whether that becomes corona proof or an “After Vaccine party”. We can start talking about the winter events as well. The grounds will be transformed into a warm and cozy winter paradise again. Very good for group and company outings, parties, winter festivals and meetings with team building activities. And one more important point; you can park in front of our door. For free.
