As we sit down to write this letter, we feel immensely hopeful. Of course, the last year has been riddled with hardship for just about everyone. With so much uncertainty, from the health of loved ones to economic instability, this last year has been far from easy. But here’s the good news: the end is near. With the days getting warmer and life resuming as it once was, it is fair to say we’ve all proven ourselves. We are resilient. We are resourceful. We are ready to have a thriving year.Over the course of the last 12 months, we’ve had to pivot, quickly becoming one of the top Virtual Event Planning services in the country. We’ve hosted fantastic virtual events and have managed to infuse events big and small with a sense of excitement and camaraderie even in socially distanced times. As life gets back to normal and in-person gatherings recommence, we’re confident that our industry will persevere. We love that we’re now seeing hybrid events, with virtual and in-person components. It’s the best of both worlds. This year, we are planning for a hybrid event. We are happy to announce that there will be a few new elements to this year’s Expo and we can’t wait to share them with you.
