Oscars 2021 are just around the corner and the producers of the show have announced that attending virtually won't be a possibility this year. Hoping for the event to be inspirational and aspirational, they asked the attendees to come dressed to the nines and leave their casual attires at home.
The Event Brew crew is not sure how they feel about in-person-only Oscars 2021 and the authenticity of the gala event's theme, "Stories Matter". Sure, we are all excited about the idea of attending in-person events again. However, giving attendees no choice but to attend in-person comes across as rather insensitive and exclusionary in these particular times. In today's episode, Thuy, Nick, and Dustin read the letter that the producers had sent the nominees and share their concerns, both as consumers and as event profs.

Talking about event budgeting can understandably seem daunting and confusing. What even goes into organizing an event and how can we know for sure that we can trust a certain event production company? The trusted hosts of Event Brew are not afraid to talk about budgets, though, so neither should be you!
In today's Event Brew podcast, Will encourages Dustin, Nick, and Thuy to talk candidly about event budgeting. They approach the matter from the perspectives of both the event planners as well as the production companies. They explore the reasons behind the fear and distrust that often accompanies conversations about money and prove that it doesn't have to be that way. When partnerships are built on trust, budgeting conversations can be just as exciting as discussions about engagement strategies.
