COVID-19 Update for Live Event Professionals

In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, the live event industry fundamentally changed. New regulations will influence the way we create live experiences in the future. At the same time, businesses have been able to receive benefits (such as PPP loans) as a stopgap, but for many of them, more support is needed. What will you want to know as you navigate this new reality?

In this online session, presented by NAMM and PLSN magazine, a panel of industry experts weigh in with:

  • An update on the current status, including findings from a recent PLSN survey, and outlook for the live event industry
  • Developments in the reopening process
  • Industry solutions and precautions proposed to further ensure safety as mass gatherings and live events resume
  • Update on the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and key action points that are being made to the highest levels of government, concerning the extension of the grace period for loan forgiveness, additional funding and lowering salary requirements

The webinar is designed to inform and educate, as well as encourage all to contact their representatives with a unified voice.

Moderator: Terry Lowe, Publisher, PLSN and FRONT of HOUSE Magazines
