As we spend more time in Virtual Discussion Groups within our industry community, the topic has been turning recently to strategies to create safer events for patrons, sponsors and others once events are able to return.
There are no clear guidelines in place for this yet, although I'm sure we'll receive some direction at some point. While we anxiously wait, why not start thinking about our options and putting contingency plans in place, should we need them?
I've been collecting various lists as I participate in webinars, conference calls and networking events so I'm getting us all started by listing them below.
Preventative measures to consider:
If you're not sure how to get started with this process for your event, start by "walking" through each area of your event as a patron, sponsor, vendor, or other type or attendee. Think about all of the "touch points" and if there are any ways that you can adjust those to avoid possible virus transfer.
