In the history of event planning, 2020 will be the year that brought the most cataclysmic changes. Until 2021! Events are going to look vastly different next year when we are all able to return to face-to-face. From seating arrangements to group dining, personal greetings to bathroom breaks, from speaker mics to sharing materials — and let’s acknowledge that virtual components complementing in-person activities are here to stay – nothing will be the same. How does a busy, stressed out planner know which options to choose?
