The events industry plays an important role in bringing people together. People love to attend all sorts of different events to engage in a shared experience, learn something new or be inspired.
During COVID-19, while many events were cancelled or postponed, those that did go ahead went virtual. Like many other sectors which had to adapt and respond in a rapidly changing environment, the digital transformation of many event companies happened almost overnight in response to the social distancing restrictions introduced during the pandemic.
