COVID-19 State Of The Industry Expert Webinar Panel
Updated: May 19
As the event industry has entered into uncharted territory during these uncertain times it has become apparent that many events especially those being run by volunteers and small staff needed some guidance as to what to expect and how to handle issues that are arising from cancellations and postponements due to COVID-19. After being asked to appear on several event association webinars Ryan Kintz from Afton Tickets, Michael Bleau from Event Hub, and Teresa Stas from Green Cactus Event Sponsorships are working together to help other live events by sharing our first hand knowledge of dealing with the COVID-19 crisis and the feedback we are getting from our clients and other events across the country.
We are offering to host a totally free 45-60 min webinar for your group or association that offers information and advice on the topics of Sponsorship, Ticketing and Vendors. It's our way of giving back to our industry at its most vulnerable time. We've conducted webinars for the Oregon Festival and Events Association, California Festival and Events Association, Colorado Festival and Events Association, South Carolina Festival and Events Association, Florida Festival and Events Association, among many others!
