Happy Monday Everyone, we are taking a break from introducing our members with a new blog from Jacqui Doyle from The Conference People.

It is amazing how life has change in a very short amount of time. We have very different priorities now. The most important ones are staying safe and looking after one another.

Although it may take some time we know that our industry will bounce back, we have been through difficult ties before although nothing like this. However live events are important for so many reasons and you can never replace the face to face meetings and interactions with Zoom and other platforms although it has been and still is a life saver. We’re already seeing a lot of positive action within the industry, from sanitization benchmarks to re-worked capacity charts to re-invented breaks and lunches.

Although we will need to start off with small number of people gathering, once larger gatherings are allowed again, there will of course be even stricter restrictions in place. We’re working with a number of suppliers to produce a range of protective solutions. First up is a branded face mask. Take the worry away from your delegates – and give them confidence to attend your meeting.

During the pandemic we have donated masks to our local community heroes, including hospices and Eastbourne Mencap.

We are so looking forward to meeting with Industry colleagues and clients again. Until then stay Safe!
