Finally the news we’ve all been waiting for, there’s a vaccine coming!
Yes it’s early days and we’ve got a long virtual winter ahead, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel, so we’ve been researching what it means for live events in 2021.
Our summary is that events mid to later 2021 look very likely, which has been reflected in an influx of enquiries at venues for Autumn 2021. Autumn is a busy conference season anyway, but companies are looking to squeeze a years worth of postponed events into a few months, so availability is becoming limited already.
What will happen, and when?
As Event Managers it’s in our nature to be in control of timelines; but something we can’t control is how long a vaccine roll out takes that will make events safe again. But it’s always good to have a realistic plan in place so we can advise clients and plan for ourselves. On early research, our expectations for next year are as follows:
What should you do now?
Our advice is simple, start planning now! Many companies are and you don’t want to be left behind…
Covid Secure Bookings
Our clients will still be nervous of contracting events until the pathway becomes clearer. That is why we offer extremely flexible booking terms, lower deposit payments and full refunds on events that can not happen due to Covid restrictions. All event bookings are risk free.
The above is all very exciting, but it’s still a long way off and you may need a solution in the coming few months, which is a bit better than Zoom meeting. We’re now experts in virtual events on many platforms for all types of virtual events. We’ve just completed our best one yet, so please do give us a shout for a demo.
We know it’s still a long way to go and there will be some bumps in the road, but we’re finally on the right path.
Events are massively important to business, relationships, happiness and the economy, but nothing is more important than your well being and looking after each other. Stay safe and we’ll see you next year.
