2. Be Venue Wise

Apart from knowing events that are safe to be organized you also need to match the venue design with your audience density, especially when it comes to dealing with New Year’s overcrowding. The audience preferences are pretty clear as a majority of them are preferring mandatory face masks with 6 feet distancing.
