A Comprehensive List of Tips, Tools, and Examples for Event Organizers During the Coronavirus Outbreak
COVID-19 is spreading and whether the response is overblown or not, conferences and events are being forced to overhaul their plans.
This year is going to be rough for event organizers. If your event is coming up soon, you’ll likely have to cancel or reschedule. Sarah Evans started a running list of conferences that have been canceled or rescheduled.
Even if your event is at the end of the year, it will be very difficult to promote your event without coming across as tone-deaf, ticket sales will suffer, sponsorship sales will suffer. Jessie Char, Co-creator of Layers Conference beautifully rambled about how real the struggle is in this thread. For our own event, CMX Summit, while we still plan to host our event on schedule, we’re holding off on all promotions for the time being.
