The Victory Services Club transforms itself into a Key-Worker Hotel to support the fight against COVID-19

The Victory Services Club, a private military Club and events venue in Marble Arch London, has been transformed into a hotel to accommodate key workers. The Club has 100 rooms available, of which 50 to 60 are currently being used to support military personal deployed in London to help with the Coronavirus pandemic.

Mark Field, Operations Director at Victory Services Club said: “As a private Club and events venue, we are closed to our members and our event business clients, so we approached the MoD to see how we could help support them instead. It took us a week to develop all new Standard Operating Procedures and deliver advanced staff training. We have adapted our usual working practices to ensure our staff and guests remain safe: For example, our food offering has changed to meet social distancing and safety rules. We don’t usually provide room service, but as our usually lively bar and restaurants are currently closed, we are now serving all meals in guests’ rooms – up to 180 trays per day. Guests’ can order meals to be delivered within a 30 minute time-slot. Staff and guests are leaving food trays outside the rooms to maintain social distancing rules”.

“The safety of our team is of upmost importance so we are operating with only the staff members who have volunteered to come to work; We currently have 23 staff members living in the Club each week on rotation. One of our conference rooms has been turned into an extension of our canteen to ensure staff have the space to observe the 2 meter distancing rule. The reaction from guests has been amazing with the team frequently complimented for their warm and friendly welcome.

“We are proud to be supporting our military and key workers through these troubling times and the Club will continue this support for as long as it is needed.”

the eastside rooms to Target Association Business

the eastside rooms have begun a concerted campaign to work with the association market. The new venue has announced it will be the latest member of the Association of British Professional Conference Organisers (ABPCO), following on from the launch of Future Birmingham last month, a new website developed so that long lead event organisers can see the infrastructure developments taking place in the area from now until 2030.

the eastside rooms lends itself well to association meetings, set in the heart of Birmingham’s ‘Knowledge Quarter’ and on the doorstep of the new HS2 rail service, linking it to the North, the South and continental Europe. The layout of the new venue, which launches in the Autumn, is also designed so that there is the same amount of breakout space as in the main plenary room, The Affinity Suite.

On top of its partnership with ABPCO, the venue is also looking to partner with other trade bodies and events, both in the UK and internationally, as a way to give more association event organisers and PCO’s early access to the facilities.

“When the eastside rooms was being designed, it was with association events strongly in mind,” commented Leanne Bladen, Sales Director, the eastisde rooms. “The whole build has been executed in a really ethical way, allowing for inclusivity and accessibility right across our facilities. We’re also surrounded by industry expertise in the form of universities, R&D centres, and incubation hubs, covering everything from manufacturing and engineering, to medical and music. It makes The Eastside a very nice part of the city to base an association event.”

the eastside rooms is launching in October 2020 and will become one of the most connected venues in the UK. On top of the close proximity to HS2, the venue will benefit from the three airports in and around Birmingham, again linking it to mainline Europe, Scandinavia and beyond.
