Millennium Point announces contact free venue tours to event bookers

Posted on Friday June 12, 2020

We are delighted to announce contact-free tours of our venue available now for event bookers.

WHAT IS IT?

Our contact-free tours offer event clients more flexibility to start planning their events safely and in a way suitable to their needs. This forms part of what we’re doing as an events venue to ensure we minimise the spread of coronavirus without compromising on your scope or vision so that you can book your next event with confidence at Millennium Point.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

We have two options that will allow event bookers to tour our versatile event spaces in a manner that is safe and readily available to suit your needs. Millennium Point has 17 flexible event spaces, from fully furnished small meeting rooms to a breathtaking 354-seat auditorium equipped with one of the largest screens in Birmingham. To view our event spaces, click here. 

OPTION 1: GUIDED TOUR

The first option is a face-to-face tour of the building. Event bookers can request a face-to-face meeting with a member of the team to tour our event spaces. These tours will adhere to the latest social distancing guidelines highlighted by the UK government as well as the additional measures the venue has put in place to minimise risk for both clients and employees including the use of hand sanitiser and maintaining social distancing.

OPTION 2: VIRTUAL TOUR

 

The second option is a fully online virtual showround lead by a member of the Millennium Point Event Sales team. Venue bookers can now tour the venue’s 17 spaces virtually while discussing specifics and receiving advice and guidance from a member of the friendly events team. Virtual tours will be hosted through Zoom but we can also use another video conference platform if preferable.
