Al Hamra International Conference Centre becomes first Middle East MICE facility to receive safety certification

Al Hamra International Exhibition & Conference Centre has been recognised as the first safe MICE facility in the region by Bureau Veritas.

Reinforcing Ras Al Khaimah’s readiness to receive visitors and host events, the beachfront MICE venue has adopted health, safety and hygiene protocols as defined under the ‘SafeGuard Assurance Programme’ of Bureau Veritas.

Preventive measures introduced at the venue include, among others, health assessments and screenings of staff and visitors, enhanced health and hygiene practices across the venue including catering, the availability of hand sanitisers, enforcing social distancing measures, the re-evaluation of timelines to avoid queuing and bottlenecks, a reduction in venue participant capacity as appropriate, and the use of a hybrid setting to enable participants to engage virtually.

Al Hamra International Exhibition & Conference Centre was assessed on factors including commitment to the programme, respect for social distancing guidelines, compliance with hygienic practices and measures, as well as surveillance and management of any issues.
