The Coronavirus - A Meeting Planner's Perspective

As the Spring 2020 trade show and event season begins, the Coronavirus is of major concern among event professionals and it is important to consider the impact it can have on your event. If you're worried about lower-than-expected attendance or your event can no longer be held in-person, how can you make it a success? 

Join us Thursday, March 12th at 3:00 pm ET, to hear how organizations are working to address the situation, what to consider for your events, and how virtual alternatives can play a larger role in your overall event plan. Our very own Kate Dodd, Vice President of Marketing for our Event Tech Group, Tristan Jordan, General Manager for YM Careers, and Jessica Metzler, Director of Client Success for Freestone will discuss:

  • What event planners and organizations should be thinking about 

  • What precautions you should take for in-person events 

  • Engaging your audience through virtual meeting alternatives 

You won't want to miss this information!

Whether you need to transform your in-person event into a virtual summit, town-hall-style event, or online panel discussion - you have several options to keep your attendees engaged and informed. Regardless of if you have your own capture crew or need help building from the ground up, we'll show you how it’s done.
