<p class="font_8"><span class="wixGuard">​</span></p>

<p class="font_8">One of the toughest hit areas in events are "for purpose" events, events that are designed to not only provide an exceptional guest experience, but to drive a deeper objective such as raise much needed funds for a cause, drive the annual revenue generator for the year, or bring together a community to celebrate and share.&nbsp; These often complex, challenging and highly rewarding events are still missing from standard COVID Safe Plans.&nbsp; Here we bring together a panel of highly experienced producers to help you navigate the rules and ideas that will give you the tools and confidence to bring your event to life.</p>
