You cannot escape the 24/7 news coverage about the Coronavirus right now. Due to the pandemic, many events have been canceled or postponed including March Madness, Coachella, and SXSW, to name a few. The CDC announced recommendations over the weekend to limit gatherings to 50 or fewer people. How do you instill a sense of community when we’re advised to stay away from each other?
Before going any further…
We do not believe in capitalizing on a crisis. It bristles the fiber of our being when we see it and it’s just not who we are. We understand the chaos and concern of the current status of our world and we’re here to help our clients find solutions to the quickly changing state of affairs. We will continue to support our clients and community the best way we know how: by crafting moments of surprise and delight and helping our clients create memorable experiences.
Creative Solutions to Postponed and Canceled Events
Some events are being cancelled, some postponed and some are moving to a digital platform. We’ve put together a few ideas below if you find yourself in one of these situations:
Event Postponed – The event is cancelled for now but will be rescheduled. You send out a “Rain Check” to the attendees you’ve missed.
Event being switched to a Digital Platform – we could still go with the Rain Check theme, it works here too. For the sake of exercising our creative muscles, though, let’s focus on a Virtual Reality vibe instead (cue Jamiroquai).
Event is Cancelled
Canceling or postponing events can be inconvenient to those who were not only attending, but exhibiting too. We love how Joanna Gaines handled canceling her event, Spring at the Silos. She continues to highlight vendors through her Instagram even though the event has been canceled. Expertly done!
During this time we are adjusting to the news coming in minute by minute just like all of you. It’s understandable and even necessary that events are cancelled or postponed. We’re committed to helping you deliver joyful moments during both good times, and uncertain times like these. Let’s work together to create memorable experiences, surprise & delight and support our communities.
