There is no denying that the affects of COVID-19 are proving both dramatic and widespread across all industries, and particularly so for those that specialise in bringing people together.
Open to all members of the broader events community, the second version of this forum is a chance to hear from key food and drinks event producers about how they are managing the short and longterm challenges of the current COVID-19 situation.
Joining us for our second discussion, will be producers from some of New Zealand's iconic events including Wellington on a Plate, Beervana, Winetopia and Pinot Palooza (REVEL).
You’ll also hear from Pinot Noir 2021 co-chair, Penelope Naish, who’ll not only discuss their event, but touch on how COVID-19 is effecting regional events, especially North Canterbury.
This ongoing series, the aim of this forum is to create an alliance of like-minded global event producers from the food and drinks space, and provide a space where members can communicate and collaborate – sharing their experiences, challenges, insights and ideas around the current situation while and creating a vision for how things might look in the future.
If you're an event producer, venue operator, promoter, supplier or from a related industry, we welcome you to join us to gain the kind of insights that you need right now and to ensure your voice is heard. As part the registration process, we’ll invite you to pose a question to our panel.
"There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about." – Margaret J. Wheatley
