We're Good To Go
Together with our sister entertainment venues, Waterfront Hall and Ulster Hall, we’ve been awarded the ‘We’re Good To Go’ industry standard as well as the ‘Safe Travels’ stamp. These are the official UK marks to signal that a tourism and hospitality business has worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and has a process in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing.
The We’re Good To Go scheme, has been recognised by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) as meeting its international global standardised health and hygiene protocols and for its role in supporting the recovery of the UK tourism sector. Organisations meeting this standard are also eligible for the global Safe Travels stamp, the protocols for which were designed with the World Health Organisation and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines’ and developed alongside leading industry associations and international organisations.
In line with our aim of being world-class and creating an environment in which our people, their families and communities are safe, all risks and appropriate mitigation are considered when planning for live and hybrid events at ICC Belfast. Team members have been provided with thorough COVID-19 workplace training and together with their line manager, complete a quarterly checklist to ensure support is provided or adjustments are made to enable them to continue to carry out their role effectively.
We pride ourselves on matching our organisational ambitions and vision with providers that are also driven to be world-class and operating in a post pandemic environment is no different.
