A Socially Distanced Approach 

To ensure that all attendees, event staff, and volunteers are safe, a greater investment in health and safety measures is required. Here are a few approaches people are considering for the future of events. 

Drive-Ins

Event producers have been working hard to find novel ways of ensuring social distancing practices can be effectively enforced. Many event producers have turned to an old concept of the drive-in event where attendees remain in their cars to watch a show or performance. This has been seen as a successful way to get events up and running  for this festival season.

Here are few articles that cover successful drive-events to checkout: 

Bubbled Platforms 

This August England hosted what is widely considered one of the first socially distanced concerts( Non drive in) in the world. This Sam Fender Concert  hosted 2500 attendees on 500 small platforms to ensure social distancing protocols were followed. This novel approach to social distancing protocols sparked international news and could be seen all over social media. This concept has gained even more support as many people start to consider the option of attending large events for the fall. 

Sports Spectators 

One of the hottest topics in events is the return of live spectator. Professional sports worldwide have resumed their seasons without spectators. However, the pressure to find a way of bringing the spectators back into the stadiums is mounting, as revenues drop. While there have been various sporting events with socially distanced spectators, there are still a lot of logistics and decisions to be made in the coming months. 

The United Kingdom has been leading the charge with various pilot sporting events that test safety measures in preparation for fans' return to sporting venues. 

Here are a few articles that cover how sporting event producers are working to bring back spectators to major sporting events. 

Conclusion 

Where there is a will, there is away, and live events are no exception. With more reopening taking place around the world there is great pressure to see live events return to communities.
