The world is facing an unprecedented crisis, over 3 billion people are under curfew with uncertainty about when these conditions will be lifted and “normal life” will resume. The exhibition industry was amongst the first and hardest hit by the COVID-19 outbreak. An estimated USD 81 billion of total economic output will not be generated related to the exhibition industry by the end of Q2 – and the number will surely rise. Millions of jobs are at stake. What will our world look like in the post-COVID era? How will our events have to change to reflect this new normal?

These challenges are universal to our industry, but here in Europe we have the greatest concentration of international exhibition organizers with a wealth of experience and talent. Hear from our speakers how they view these challenges!
