What are the key factors to ensure resiliency for our post-pandemic meetings and events?

As we move into different phases of the pandemic and its resulting effects on the meetings and events industry, we turn our focus to recovery and rebuilding for the New Normal. Though we have no control over the current or next crisis, we can manage our state of preparedness, and thus our resilience for what comes next.

To develop this resilience, the entire meeting and event industry supply chain must work in tandem to engineer enduring risk mitigation strategies. We must build post-pandemic meetings and events with systems to mobilize for and mitigate both foreseeable and unforeseeable risks; demonstrate to potential participants why and how they will feel safe; and offer a participant value proposition for attending events that is rooted in safety, wellness and sustainability.

With authentic caring and concern throughout the planning process, attendee confidence will rebound, thus allowing a safe return to face-to-face events and a resilient future for the meetings and events industry.

Join Meetings Today and leading meetings and events risk management expert Brenda Rivers, founder of Andavo Meetings and Incentives and president of SAFE LLC™, for this free one-hour video webinar to ensure your meetings and events are prepared for the New Normal.
