Will Live Music and Concerts Return in 2021?

WILL LIVE MUSIC AND CONCERTS RETURN IN 2021?

Crank Up the Tunes and Keep Summer Dreams Alive! As a new year introduced itself at the stroke of midnight, many of us were filled with hope. Suddenly, our minds came alive with fantasies of a brighter year that included possibilities of seeing friends and family, hugging our loved ones, and the return of in-person events. And as your mind fast-forwarded to summer 2021, you probably thought to yourself, ‘when will live music return?’  2020 brought the cancellation of all live, in-person gatherings, including concerts and sporting events. Disheartened, we continued to dream of a future full of live festivals and events. Luckily, there have been many exciting advancements, particularly in music, restoring our hope that, yes, live music and concerts will return to our lives. But how is the world preparing for this homecoming? Check out how some of these recent developments just may restore our hope! The Luxembourg Live Music Experiment  In February 2021, The Because Music Matters series in Luxembourg is rolling out 5 new test concerts, including strict COVID measures, such as social distancing and mandatory masks.  Organized by the Arena Resilience Alliance (ARA), this groundbreaking experiment will limit live concerts to 100 people, which will include COVID

WEAR PANTS, TABARNAKKK!

Seeing your faces live is awesome, people. Virtual meetings have granted opportunities to stay connected in all the best ways, for sure. BUT, being witness to your old flannel PJs or funky boxer briefs (tho comical at times!) has NOT been cool. Somewhere in this new normal, we gave ourselves permission to get sloppy and the madness has to stop. We are professionals, are we not?! Whether you are an event attendee or industry professional, choosing the right outfit for an important occasion has always been something to consider. And even with our ‘new normal’ of online events replacing onsite affairs, clothing decisions are still important. So put your damn pants on! Attending a conference or virtual party from home has its perks. You can enjoy the comforts of home without needing to arrange transportation or a babysitter. But how you present yourself is still important and no, that doesn’t mean sporting a clean pair of pajamas. It shouldn’t matter if no one can see your bottom half; putting effort into your outfit signals that you actually care about yourself. So do yourself a favor and indulge in some self-care, one leg at a time.  When you look good, you

AUDIO VISUAL FAILS RUIN EVENTS

AUDIO VISUAL FAILS RUIN EVENTS

Ivory-colored tablecloths, shiny silverware with a hint of dazzling sparkle, golden-ribboned chairs, and banquet décor you could only imagine seeing at your rich friend’s wedding… It was a going to be a huge charity event. One of our very first non-profit fundraising galas! As established corporate event planners, it was a big step in diversifying our portfolio and expanding our expertise to non-profit organizations. We were excited to help produce a fantastic cause awareness video with a $5000 budget! We couldn’t wait to show all of our 400 guests the dedication we put into this production. There would be high-profile attendees, corporate sponsorship executives, and the fundraising generosity in the room depended on this critical video reveal. We were nervous. Being out of town, we couldn’t hire our usual audio-visual experts. Nonprofit charity organizations prefer local partnerships with vendors as a kind extension of community support. We knew it would be the most critical piece of the night so we prepared it in every format imaginable…MP4, MOV, AVI, you name it, we made it and kept backups. We tested audio-visual and lighting services with our technician repeatedly. Synched and resynched the presentation script until sound and screen testing was flawless
