After obtaining the label for its French activities at the end of 2020, GL Events wanted to implement a process aimed at labelling all of its activities worldwide and harmonising the health protocols for the provision of services, hosting and event organisation, regardless of the host country. Nine countries were selected as representative of their activities: Belgium, Italy, Japan, Chile, Brazil, United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, South Africa and Hungary. After numerous audits, some of which were conducted remotely due to health conditions, GL Events was awarded the precious sesame!

"We chose Apave for their pragmatic, comprehensive approach and their ability to deploy in France and internationally. With their support, we wanted to have all of the Group's entities certified in order to validate the health approach initiated by the Group at the start of the crisis, the health protocols implemented and to guarantee the same safety standards to our various stakeholders and our employees, regardless of the company addressed. The health crisis has shown that there is no substitute for a human encounter to create a bond and share emotions. This is why we have implemented specific protocols for each event to reassure our clients in the organisation of their group activities so that people can meet again", adds Olivier Ferraton, Deputy Managing Director of GL Events.
