Laura Hammarstrom, founder of Laura Hammarstrom, CMP, LLC, can attest to COVID-19’s massive impact on the events industry from her first-hand experience. Her company, Laura Hammarstrom, CMP, LLC, provides services surrounding a comprehensive suite of professional, customer-focused, on-site event management. In her role at the company, Hammarstrom specializes in VIP experiences, corporate meetings, international conferences, pharmaceutical programs, festivals, and incentive programs.
The professional event manager, entrepreneur, and travel director received her certification in Pandemic On-Site Protocol and Cvent’s Diagramming and Seating in February of this year. With a certificate like this, Hammarstrom will be better prepared to maneuver events in the future while still respecting pandemic factors that are here to stay for some time.
Pandemic On-Site Protocol Training helps supply knowledge that covers all positions of on-site event staff to show how to approach self-safety properly, identify and suppress risks, and gain skills in handling non-compliance issues if they surface. The training includes all on-site team member positions, both internal and external, like suppliers, volunteers, production crews, and vendors. By the end of the training, all players involved with an event taking place will know what they need to do to monitor and maintain a safe environment for all who participate and are present. The Pandemic On-Site Protocol Certificate’s learning outcomes include knowledge about the role of a Duty of Care agreement, how to establish safety goals at an event, best practices for guest logistics, guidance for site risk evaluation and assessment, and much more.
In addition to her Pandemic On-Site Protocol Certificate, Hammarstrom received a Cvent’s Diagramming and Seating Certificate. The training required to acquire this certificate is designed specifically for event professionals who want to show for and enhance their skill sets in Cvent’s Diagramming and Seating (formerly Social Tables®) tool. The certification is built around bringing forth an individual’s abilities to develop event layouts with the correct social distancing measures to keep attendee safety a priority as well as the overall event experience.
“COVID-19 has created multiple walls for event managers in the events industry to figure out how to maneuver around and continue forward despite social distancing dilemmas and necessary actions. Participating in opportunities to receive a certification in Pandemic On-Site Protocol and Cvent’s Diagramming and Seating is one of those avenues event managers can take to move forward during this pandemic,” said Laura Hammarstrom.
