Amid the pandemic, we have seen major national and international events postponed or canceled, including the 2020 Olympics and the Cannes Film Festival.
Although hopes are high that these events will hold in 2021, there is no guarantee that it will be safe to hold such major events that attract a global audience and thousands of people.
Even smaller events like carnivals, festivals, conventions, political rallies, and concerts are not feasible based on social distancing rules and safety guidelines of different states.
To host most of these major events means that travelers will troop in from different countries. With the uncertainty surrounding resumption of flights, international travel policies, and health checks for massive gatherings, high-profile events might not resume yet.
According to experts’ predictions, the first sets of events that will recover are those organized for domestic audiences in large cities.
Such events will have brief sessions and not span over a day. With such a setting, most activities and planners will not make as much profit.
There is also a possibility that meetings will also take a new shape with people present in a room and others connecting virtually while physical distancing measures will be in place.
