The speed with which the COVID-19 pandemic hit the business world — and the totality of its damaging effects in every corner of the hospitality, destination marketing, travel, and live events sectors — cannot be overstated. To get a sense of pandemic’s impact, PCMA sent an email invitation on March 31 to its database of event planners and suppliers to participate in a survey on how they are reacting and their expectations moving forward. Within a day, more than 1,200 people had participated.
The data and open-ended responses provide fresh insights about the industry’s resilience and a clear-eyed look at what the next few months and remainder of 2020 may hold in store. Get the full report by clicking the download button below.
