MNFEA Presents: An expert panel on the current landscape for events: Cancellation/postponement Decision Making, Stakeholder Communication, Sponsorships, Ticketing, and Virtual Programming. We'll discuss how to mitigate damage now, and strategies to bounce back from the Covid-19 pandemic, along with guidance from the newly published Event Safety Alliance Reopening Guide.
As the event industry has entered into uncharted territory during these uncertain times it has become apparent that many events, especially those being run by volunteers and small staff, need guidance as to what to expect and how to handle issues that are arising from cancelations and postponements due to COVID-19. This will be a 45-60min webinar for your group or association that offers information and advice on the topics of Sponsorship, Ticketing and Vendors.
