Our new fortnightly live stream series, ‘Back to Business: Events In A Post-COVID World’, aims to shine a light on the issues affecting event professionals as the sector returns to normality post-COVID.

The second episode explored why live events are so important, why we should care about them, and what we need to do to turn heads again and encourage event organisers to book in-person events. Tackling this were panellists Nikki Clare (Head of Events and Client Service at Hearst UK) and Juliet Trip (Senior Events Manager at Chemical Watch) in a session moderated by Glenn Mainwaring (Business Development Manager at Barbican Centre). Watch the full episode below.

The next episode takes place at 11am, Wednesday 16th September, where we'll be delving into a major client event planned for October with a panel who will discuss the challenges, the compromises, the highs, lows and joys of actively planning a live event again.
