There is no doubt that COVID-19 has had an unprecedented impact on the events industry, and there is a lot of anxiety surrounding what the future looks like. Yes, this is unfortunate. Thousands of large international and local events have been cancelled or postponed, but is there an opportunity amongst the chaos of the COVID-19 crisis for the events industry?
When was the last time you had a chance to simply re-evaluate how you do things? Can things be more efficient, sustainable or enjoyable to your attendees? How can your event do better with less? There has never been a greater time for reinvention in the event industry than right now while things are at a standstill.
While anxiety remains high, I challenge you to stay calm and carry on planning for the future state of your events. Have you wondered how you can do more with less? Well, that’s the very problem technology solutions have been solving for years.
Technology solutions offer you countless new ways to streamline your operations to help you increase your margins while providing a better experience for your customers or attendees. There have been countless events investing in virtual event technology for remote event attendance to weather the storm. Rather than simply throw money at the problem right now, why not consider investing in a solution for the future when events will once again open their gates to crowds of thousands of people.
Consider what areas of your operation usually are placed on the back burner or areas you “make do.” These are the areas of your operations with the most significant room for improvement and therefore will have the greatest return of investment.
For example, when was the last time you evaluated your event staff and volunteer management process? Are you still using spreadsheets and emails to wrangle your workforce? Then maybe it’s time to start looking for an efficient way to manage your team. We at InitLive have built an entire solution around streaming event staff and volunteer management process to help organizers provide an exceptional event experience to attendees.
It will take strong leaders to help the event industry get back to business again in the coming months, and likely with pent up demand for our services. Now is the time to focus on strengthening your business processes, and positioning your organization to be stronger on the other side of this crisis. The InitLive team is here to support you in these critical initiatives. We are currently offering a COVID-19 guarantee to help you prepare for the future with peace of mind.
