10 Ways Events Will Be Better in the Post-COVID World

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic caused unexpected challenges for the catering and events industry that impacted livelihoods around the world. With stay at home orders, event cancellations, and safety measures, large gatherings ultimately came to a complete halt. However, catering and event professionals are resilient enough to make it through anything.

 The talented people that comprise our community have learned so much through the extraordinarily challenging times of the past year. But, we are no longer looking back. Now, we are looking ahead to brighter days full of renewed strategies, fresh innovations, increased inclusiveness, and of course, much healthier and more sustainable ways to run events.

 Find out how by reading our new whitepaper, “10 Ways Events Will Be Better in the Post-COVID World.”
