And what can planners do to create a successful hybrid experience in a world where these types of events are gaining enormous momentum?

As per usual, our incredible hosts are ready to have a candid, filter-free conversation about the topic.

Ignoring politics, in general, is hard. Ignoring politics during the current state of things is impossible. As the world struggles to contain a global pandemic and a series of protests arise throughout several countries, event planners need to take a step back. Once again, we urge you to remember why you chose this profession and why you love this industry. And a while ago, we touched upon this topic when we discussed storytelling. But amidst current circumstances, it becomes more relevant than ever.
Event planners have a responsibility towards their attendees and, to a certain extent, towards the world. The power of events lies in bringing people together, no matter the circumstances. And so far, we proved successful. But how does event planning around political unrest work? What part do we play in being game-changers and help push the world forward? Join Nick Borelli, Dustin Westling, and Thuy Diep as they discuss this topic on this week's incredible edition of Event Brew!

It's time to talk about safety - and that means CDC guidelines for events. Because in a world where COVID-19 is still present, planners need to start getting up to date with the program. As the economy starts opening back up, the events industry has to keep up with the measures put in place to protect people. Hybrid events will come into play. And in order to make attendees feel safe, as well as to respect the CDC guidelines for events, some studying and research become necessary.
Obviously, things will keep changing accordingly to the state of the world. But that's just another reason for event professionals to stay on top of these guidelines. Because as we discussed recently, only events that ensure safety will emerge as the winners. So, what are the biggest risk factors? And what must event planners do to ensure maximum safety for their attendees now and in the future? Are there any specific measures depending on the size and nature of the event? All of this and more will be discussed on this week's episode of Event Brew, hosted by Thuy Diep, Will Curran, and Nick Borelli. So press play and join the conversation!
