The Future of Events & Conferences

Dear Friends and Clients of Grimes, McGovern & Associates

First of all, some Good News regarding the crisis:

Most of the energy around bringing events back have centered around separating trade shows, events & conferences from the term “mass gatherings”.  Germany, a leader in the events business globally, has succeeded EXHIBITION WORLD MASS GATHERINGS

In Asia, the Hunan Auto Show drew 62,000 last week and Germany is talking about events beginning as early as May 30 EXHIBITION NEWS GERMANY

Here in the US, some of the states opening earliest, like Texas and Georgia, are home to numerous city trade shows as well as hotel and destination events, which bodes well for events resuming in the US.

We are having many conversations with event companies re: our Advisory Services, helping them specifically with strategies for high-margin online and virtual events. More info here:

We wish the best to you and your colleagues and families during this time.
