2020 taught us that with the adoption of digital-first experiences, our reach as organizers can be greater than ever. This can pose endless opportunities for traditionally regionalized events to expand and reach new markets, increasing their community and network of buyers/sellers. This incredible opportunity also opens the door to potential challenges such as connecting across multiple cultures and staying true to your organization's brand identity.

While there’s no question 2020 has been tremendously challenging for tradeshow and exhibitions, this portion of the meetings and events industry seems to be uniquely positioned to get back to business faster than business meetings based on the safety guidelines and protocols that have been established. Additionally, with the ability to schedule appointments and spread out the events in large ballrooms and convention halls--it’s a matter of spacing it properly based on occupancy. David gives us great insight into how this portion of the industry is positioned.
