By Natasha Sotomayor, Events Manager at Anyline.
When I started with Anyline in January, I came in ready to tackle the extensive list of trade fairs across Europe, Asia, and America. And while there were whispers of a virus starting to spread in China, I’ll be honest and say that most of us saw this as nothing more than the flu!
Conference and event organizers assured us that everything was going to continue like normal. Until suddenly it wasn’t.
The first big domino to fall was the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Seeing a 100,000+ visitor event vanish gave us a stark warning of things to come. Since then, many more have wisely followed the advice of the WHO, CDC and other organizations to postpone or cancel.
How to Tackle Events During COVID-19?
After weeks, months, sometimes years of preparation, it’s the question on every event planner’s lips. But the harsh truth is we need to keep moving – our companies are depending on us to regroup and find a new way forward.
That’s why we at Anyline are ramping up our use of #Livestream, and are launching a new series of webinars. Join us from home to find out how mobile scanning is unlocking efficiency, unblocking bottlenecks, and unleashing new potential for companies around the world!
