Little Rock Convention & Visitors Bureau Enhances Safety Protocols in Meeting Spaces

July 9, 2020


As Little Rock Convention & Visitors Bureau (LRCVB) begins to see some events return to the public facilities it manages and operates, health and safety remain top priority as venues have been sanitized and additional protocols have been implemented.

Safety has always been a priority for LRCVB as staffers work to protect meeting and convention goers and special event attendees in the Statehouse Convention Center, Robinson Center, Ottenheimer Market Hall and other LRCVB managed facilities. Today, additional measures have been taken to ensure health, safety and comfort including safety guideline signage, re-configured capacity charts for exhibit halls, ballrooms, meeting rooms and performance halls, face covering requirements, food and beverage adaptations and more.

“Like so many cities across the country, Little Rock has been hit extraordinarily hard with the loss of more than 200 events in our LRCVB-managed spaces due to the coronavirus pandemic,” said LRCVB President and CEO Gretchen Hall. “As we prepare to welcome guests back, we remain committed to providing the safest environment possible for our patrons that will ensure their protection and give them the highest level of comfort,” she added. LRCVB is one of a very small handful of destination marketing organizations (DMOs) that manages municipal buildings and parking facilities on the capital city’s behalf.

Even one of Little Rock’s most beloved events— the 46th Annual Little Rock Farmers’ Market— is subject to new safety and sanitation protocols. The Market is starting later this year, returning July 11 in the River Market District downtown along the Arkansas River, and running each Saturday through September. Some of the safety protocols for the Market include crowd limits, and mask and social distancing requirements.

In addition to standard LRCVB operating procedures, the following enhanced safety guidelines have been implemented:
