HEALTH AND WELLBEING
The health and wellbeing of our staff and customers is our highest priority. We will not compromise on safety and will communicate these measures clearly to our guests in advance, giving them peace of mind for a safe and pleasant stay.
Talk to us about providing mental health first-aiders for your events, safe and quiet spaces for delegates to reflect or details of what we can do to keep you and your delegates safe.
We understand that events won’t be a standard format and our customers will want to be creative with space and numbers. We will offer flexible and tailored packages that suit YOU.
Our coordinators will work with you and advise on the spaces, numbers, catering options and digital solutions available to run a safe event. We will prepare a personalised customer journey for your event.Call us to discuss your package
We understand that every business, including ours, has been severely impacted recently. We will be completely transparent with our pricing and will be fair with our terms and conditions.
As members of the Meetings Industry Association (MIA), we have pledged to follow their guidelines for contracts and dealing with cancellations. We are also amending our standard terms for the provision of service to include a specific Covid-19 clause to ensure our cancellation policy is fair and reasonable.
With social distancing and reduced capacities, we will need to be flexible and creative. We will find and source excellent digital solutions for you, including split-site live streaming and video conferencing facilities.
We are also introducing a digital concierge solution to make it easier for you to place table orders, request room service or instant message us from your meeting room.Talk to us about digital solutions

We will go out of our way to inform you and your delegates of what to expect when you arrive and details of bespoke arrangements we have in place to keep you safe and socially distanced.

COMMITMENT TO SUPPLIERS
We remain fully committed to our suppliers and will always pay on time throughout this crisis. We promise to work closely with our supply chains, including our small local suppliers to find creative solutions that give you the very best experience.
Where possible, we will always try to source as locally as possible to avoid unnecessary travel throughout this crisis and support our local suppliers.
COMMITMENT TO OUR STAFF
We have taken advantage of the furlough scheme in order to retain as many of our Imago family as humanly possible. We are bringing them back into the business as soon as we can to start delivering their usual fantastic customer service.
We are onboarding our staff following lockdown with a comprehensive training plan on social distancing and hygiene measures. We have also added additional modules to our Imago Learning Academy to arm staff with the skills and confidence to operate safely.
We know that our people are our business. We will always support them because, by investing in them, we are able to give you the best service possible. We are proud to have the Investors In People Platinum award.
