by Denise Irving | March 22, 2021

And just like that, life is picking up speed! Spring is around the corner which means longer days, more sunlight, and a fresh sense of hope on the horizon.

We think it's fair to say we’ve all hit virtual fatigue, but we recognize we have a way to go before we are one hundred percent face-to-face again. However, with vaccines underway and the travel and hospitality industries opening responsibly to make passengers and guests comfortable, we’re making great strides!

Like you, we’re excited about the future and for the rebound of our industry, even if it is a slow process. Many of you are beginning to plan live and hybrid meetings and events (safely and cautiously) and we are thrilled to partner with you to provide the best speakers in the world.

So, while we aren’t doctors (nor do we play them on TV 😉), we have curated some of the best industry health & safety tips, tools, and information to help you navigate the tricky waters of meeting planning post-pandemic style.
