Visit Anaheim has partnered with local nonprofit health-care network Hoag to provide clinical solutions for meeting professionals to minimize Covid-19 risks. Hoag’s clinical solutions will include on-site screening solutions, live event medical directorship, clinical event planning services and Covid-19 technology solutions.

As conducted by Hoag, Visit Anaheim will give a preliminary review of clients’ safety and health plans for incoming events. Clients with a scheduled event are eligible for a complimentary review of their safety plans if submitted at least three months in advance, with comments and suggestions provided by Hoag within one week. If state and local guidelines happen to change before the events, planners can resubmit their plan for another review.

“As we begin to welcome back meetings, events and conventions to Anaheim, the work to safely and responsibly reopen continues and remains the highest priority for Visit Anaheim,” says Jay Burress, president and CEO of Visit Anaheim. “We have taken extensive steps to prepare for our clients’ return, and now that we have a well-respected leader in the health-care space on board as a partner, we know our clients and their attendees will have an added layer of confidence about their safety while in Anaheim.”

The health-care network provides these solutions to many Orange County employers, as well, including Disneyland Resort and John Wayne Airport (SNA).

This is just another step in the right direction for the city. In late April, Anaheim hosted its first event since February 2020, as part of dance competition organization Starpower Talent’s 2021 Regional Tour, which drew around 500 attendees to Anaheim Convention Center. Orange County Sports Commission has booked low-contact youth sporting events through July, including Fortune Fencing Cadets and South California Volleyball Association.
