I'm on the Leadership Team of the Sustainable Event Alliance and I chose to spend my re-set time to help organize a Hack-a thon! We can't yet accurately forecast how communities, economies, and systems will respond and recover as we make our way through the Covid-19 global crisis. During this pivotal moment, we invite people from throughout our industry to come together for supportive and therapeutic sessions to discuss and imagine what the future for events could be.
We are using our time-out to reimagine the next phase for the events industry.
The Hack-a-thon, brought to you by the Sustainable Event Alliance, is just a few days away and we are super excited to join with over 500 sustainable event professionals from around the globe Wednesday, April 15th.
What will be discussed?
Let's get together, create a positive future, and envision an event industry that is good for all!
Come join me!

Many colleagues, including me, have lost clients and business this week. We’re all in this and hope for the best.
