Along with other industries across the globe, the travel and hospitality world in Iceland has been significantly impacted by COVID-19. Meet in Reykjavík and its partners and friends step up to the unimaginable while maintaining humility and strength. Icelandair strives to maintain the necessary flight connections for those needing to get back home. While Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Natura invites healthcare professionals to be home away from home during the pandemic.
The government in Iceland, the municipality of Reykjavík and the team that has been assigned to guide the nation and its industries during these times is very effective. The government has announced plans to provide temporary relief to the travel and hospitality industry – including jobs.
Once the initiative has been fully executed – a thoughtful and thorough marketing campaign will be launched to applicable criteria. The meetings and events industry will be far from overlooked. “We have every intention to hit the ground running, once things unfold and we hope that everyone will be on board”, says Sigurjóna Sverrissdóttir, Managing Director of Meet in Reykjavík.
