Event Safety

Covid-19 and Your Safety

Our Commitment to Our Customers, Speakers and Staff 
The health and safety for our event attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, speakers and staff is of the utmost concern and priority of AdMonsters. AdMonsters is committed to creating exceptional experiences that ignite connection and commerce, especially through our in-person events during summer and fall 2021. In an effort to maintain the health and well-being of all participants at our events, AdMonsters has implemented new event standard operating practices and procedures. Our parent company, Access Intelligence, has a dedicated event safety task force that will be working on every live event we do to ensure compliance with CDC guidelines, state and local regulations, and the event venue.

Venue Safety Protocols

AdMonsters will be returning to the spacious Metropolitan Pavilion to host Ops. The health and safety of all guests and attendees is a priority for the Metropolitan Pavilion. The Metropolitan Pavilion has taken the city-wide “Stay Well Pledge”, a commitment to the everyday practices that will keep the community safe.

NYC Stay Well Pledge

In addition to the Stay Well Pledge, during operations:

  • We sanitize event floors every 30 minutes, including all door handles, push panels, and hand rails, with 3M’s 5L disinfectant/germicide, a hospital-grade disinfectant.
  • We provide wall-mounted hand sanitizers in all event floor bathrooms and our entrance lobby.
  • We sanitize all restroom stalls and all sinks with 3M’s 5L disinfectant/germicide. (This was standard operating practice for Metropolitan Pavilion even before the pandemic.)
  • For back of the house areas, we are sanitizing all offices more frequently, and Lysol sanitary wipes are available in office areas, including near high-touch locations, such as stationary shared office equipment.

Metropolitan Pavilion is a member of the Banquet Events Strategic Taskforce (B.E.S.T.), which is comprised of event industry professionals representing all aspects of events from an operational standpoint. Its members include owners, general managers, and directors of food and beverage, catering, and housekeeping of the top 30 venues and hotels in New York City. The members of B.E.S.T. have also consulted our valued creative partners including but not limited to audio/visual and entertainment technology providers, caterers, design & décor companies, event planners, security firms, and rental companies.

To learn more, please see the B.E.S.T. Reopening and Safely Hosting Private Events Handbook. The handbook addresses event logistics such as guest arrival, registration, food and beverage service, disinfecting and sanitizing, front- and back-of-house procedures, and more. All venues that have participated in B.E.S.T. are committed to sharing best practices with each other as they evolve. We are all dedicated to working together to see safe, vibrant, and successful special events in New York City.
