Questions and Answers
Q: It’s been 6 months and I still don’t have any events to plan. What should I do now?
Collaboration is so important during these trying times. Call up event professionals in your network and tell them that you are available for work and willing to do anything to keep your hand in the game. Often, you may need to shift your skill level to another task, but at least you will be surrounded by professionals in the event industry. And who knows what opportunities might come up!
Q: What is the first thing you should do for your Event Business during the crisis?
Prepare a working budget for your company to last until the fall, so that your company maintains a positive cash flow. Be realistic and be smart. It’s better to plan for the worst and then have things turn out better, sooner.
Q: What sorts of things should my company be doing if I am an Event Planner and I do not have any events to plan?
It’s a great time to revamp your marketing strategies, update your website, write blogs and complete those back burner projects that we never have time for.
