Oct 19, 2020

Since March 2020, the business of events has been rattled like never before, and the disruption of the pandemic has changed the industry forever. As we adapt and evolve, everyone wants to know: What strategies and solutions are helping event professionals survive, and for some, even thrive in this challenging time? What can event producers count on as they prepare their event budgets and design their plans for 2021? What best practices will help us safely reopen venues for in-person and hybrid experiences?

Join David Adler, chairman and founder of BizBash, as he sits down with Amber Guild of The New York Times and David Macy and Philip Himberg of MacDowell for interviews about how these two iconic organizations are reimagining their in-person gatherings. Then, Adler welcomes Fred Dixon of NYC & Company and Kelly Easterling of Quantum Creative Studios and #WeMakeEvents, as well as Carmen Jones of ESSENCE Communications, Glenn Rabbach of Duggal Visual Solutions, and Shaun Roberts of Great Performances for panel discussions about the state and future of the event industry during a special broadcast of the BizBash podcast GatherGeeks, from TheTimesCenter.
