As news about the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak continues to develop, the impact on the meetings industry is becoming increasingly clear. Fairs, business events and meetings in several countries around the world have already been postponed or cancelled.
We need to start thinking about how we can best protect our participants on-site, or – if we can no longer guarantee their safety – how we can switch to alternative meeting formats, such as virtual conferences, without the risk of financial loss.
The amount of information currently in circulation makes it difficult for meeting professionals and associations to filter out the relevant facts. Therefore, we have prepared a document that summarises the most important strategies and guidelines.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. We will be happy to help organise a conference which provides a safe and secure experience for all attendees.
