It would be an understatement to say the last month has been “interesting” in the events industry… or any industry for that matter. Coronavirus – or COVID19 – has created havoc across the world in many industries… including the events industry.
The economic impact on the exhibit and event industry is yet to be seen. However, there are important lessons for everyone in the industry as we watch these events unfold. I recently wrote an article on LinkedIn discussing “Coronavirus: What the Pandemic Should be Teaching Event Planners, Exhibitors and Attendees.”
In the article, I define the lessons and the options for Event Hosts, Exhibitors and Attendees. The need for flexibility and for a back-up plan is discussed.
I invite you to read the article and let me know what you think.
