The future of large in-person events is still unknown; but we know that the audience will expect a certain level of social distancing measures to be in place for small and large events. Here are five important things to consider when planning events after a pandemic. 

  1. Traffic Flow: Create one-way paths to locations to allow for adequate spacing without the worry of someone coming directly towards you.

  2. Creative Locations: Utilize outdoor open-air locations that may have more square footage.  Turn parking lots into large conference spaces for example.  Quiet Events can help with the audio for this.

  3. Touchless Everything: Limit what people touch. Quiet Events provides solutions for coat and equipment checking in/out without the need for physical paper.  Consider using an NFC (near field communication) for sign in, payment, and registration for events.

  4. Keeping it clean: Make sure to have anti-bacterial wipes and gels readily available.  Place them in front of anything that someone may need to touch like a door, vending machine, or kiosk.

  5. Offering online solutions: It may take time for everyone to feel comfortable about attending in-person events.  Consider having a streaming content portion for those that cannot physically attend.

It will be possible to have in-person events after a pandemic, just a few things need to be changed to pull off a safe event. Careful planning and organizing will ensure your guests feel that you are taking their health seriously.
