In this episode of GatherGeeks, BizBash chairman and founder David Adler hosts an important conversation about the future of the event industry. Recorded last week, Adler was joined by Sue Sung, SVP of corporate strategy for The Freeman Company who is representing Go LIVE Together, and Philip Dufour, president and creative director of The Dufour Collaborative who is representing the Live Events Coalition. The group discusses how the two new coalitions are fighting for federal support for the 12 million people in the event industry's eco-system, sharing practical ways you can help right now. They also share what methods have been most effective when appealing to politicians, as well as their thoughts and predictions on the future of safety precautions at events.
