[Virtual] Setting the Stage: Plans for Safe Convening

Thursday, June 17, 2021
1:30 PM – 2:30 PM

With vaccination rates on the rise and Philadelphia lifting mask mandates, business and leisure activities are beginning to return to the city, with convening venues taking center stage in reopening. As purveyors of experiences that are most impactful on-site, cultural, sports, and hospitality venues have been leading edge in determining how to bring people back together in person safely and with confidence.

Join us to hear from a panel of industry leaders in Greater Philadelphia as we discuss the changes and possibilities that come with bringing people together to network and entertain customers, clients, and tourists.

Attendees will learn:
• About lessons learned thus far from local venues as they have gradually reopened.
• How venues are using data to inform decisions to operate safely and monitor future activity.
• About the future of the event landscape as it continues to evolve in a post-pandemic world.
• Best practices that are being utilized to responsibly host groups of event attendees to encourage in-person participation.
• Communication strategies for attendees, patrons, and customers as restrictions and safety practices continue to change.
• How Philadelphia’s reopening plan compares to other counties, states, and metro areas, and the implications on your event.

Speakers Include:
Kristyn Aldrich
, Co-Founder, ASAP! Creative Management
Crystal Brewe, Senior Vice President, Strategic Marketing & Communications, The Kimmel Center
Mike Shane, Chief Business Officer, Philadelphia Flyers & Wells Fargo Center
Moderated by: Jeff Guaracino, President & CEO, Visit Philadelphia
