The pandemic has not only been a worldwide tragedy for many millions of people, but it’s also been a major setback for many Aussie businesses. Restrictions hit us hard, and if you’re in the events industry, you’ll know this more than anyone. But the good news is, the world has finally resumed some normalcy and event companies can enjoy greener pastures from here on. Here’s what things are going to look like for events companies moving forward and why audio and visual technologies are going to play a large role in your operations.
With the world returning to normal, the main thing that’s in stock for event companies is more business. We can leave the house at will and actually do stuff, which includes going to real-life events. We can throw weddings, parties, gatherings, exhibitions, expos, trade shows… heck, even a séance if we want to! What this essentially means for event companies is that business is going to be booming once again.
Although virtual events were a great way of keeping in touch while we couldn’t socialise in person, and while they’ll still have their role going forward, they won’t be as prevalent when the world reopens from the pandemic. Virtual events will be a way to get around the issue of distance, rather than social restrictions.
Remember when you could only have, like, 5 people around at your house? But if two of your guests were from the same household they counted as one? And if another guest was immediately family then that was OK too? These confusing rules can be left in the past, because increased capacities are what’s in stock for event companies. This means you’ve got to be prepared for big numbers, rather than just a handful of people.
Something you’ve probably missed more than anything else as an event businessperson: interstate audiences. With borders opening up, both interstate and internationally, you can expect to receive a lot more visitors from out of town, boosting your business significantly.
One of the biggest challenges event companies face as the world rapidly reopens from the pandemic, is the idea of going from tumbleweeds and crickets chirping to non-stop phone calls and event planning in a short space of time. You can see, then, how important it is for you to be prepared for the flood of business that’s going to come your way.
