As COVID-19 continues to shape the way we conduct live events, it is important for companies to put safety precautions in place in order to keep attendees safe.

We hosted a webinar, Safely Executing Events During COVID-19: A Roundtable Discussion with Industry Experts. The discussion was moderated by David Blansfield of Northstar Meetings Group and the panelists included Cara Banasch of Omni Hotels, Scott Craighead of IAEE, and Mike Moulton of TMS.

Each industry expert shared how they navigated hosting multiple live events during the pandemic. Topics of the discussion included how to ensure safety through various protocols, common challenges being faced, what planners can expect in the immediate future as well as the pandemic’s lasting impact on the event industry and much more.
