COVID-19 Event Presenter’s Guide: Strategizing For The Future

If you’re thinking we’re in the endgames, you’re probably not wrong for being skeptical about the future of the event industry. However, with recent developments and updates around the world, it would seem that social distancing has been serving its purpose well of breaking the chain. Another positive approach leading the entertainment and hospitality industry is the quick adoption of using live streaming platforms to host online events, among many others. Without further ado, our event presenter’s guide will help you strategize better.

Here’s our COVID-19 event presenter’s guide to strategizing for the future: 

1. Create a Sustainable Plan
