Event Planning Around Political Unrest

July 9, 2020

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!
