Bouncing Back

June 23 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

Q2 Spark: Bouncing Back

As the events industry, along with the rest of the world, learns how to move forward in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, the PCMA Capital Chapter is ready to Bounce Back! No only in our event planner/supplier community, but as individuals shaping our future. Join us for the Mid-Year Spark event as we explore topics such as mindfulness, rebuilding, and virtual technology. Let’s take what we’ve learned from the pandemic and make the Events Industry even stronger than before.

SCHEDULE

1:00 – 2:00 PM KEYNOTE: CARA BROOKINS – RISE AND RESILIENCE; THE TRUE STORY

Cara is the mom who literally built her own house by using YouTube tutorials.

In this motivational talk, Cara shares behind the scenes disasters and victories that show how an unlikely team can reach past doubts and fears to do the extraordinary. This story of grit and determination pushes audiences to tackle hard things. We hope her message will inspire us as we rebuild our industry from the COVID-19 Pandemic.

 

2:00 – 2:20 PM: YOGA/STRETCH BREAK WITH CHRISTINA CHILDS 
2:20 – 3:00 PM ERIN MCCLARTY: REVIEWING YOUR CONTRACTS FOR CORONAVIRUS IMPACT


Erin will orient participants around the different parts of their contracts to better understand what they say, mean, and what the existing risks may be. Then, collectively learn of different ways to try and mitigate risks in lieu of the pandemic and shifting landscape.

Michelle WyattCadmiumCD

Moderator: Shameka Jennings, National Coalition of STD Directors

The leap to virtual events moved very quickly over the last few months.  Planners shifted strategies, content format, pricing structures and sponsorship and exhibitor agreements to make the transition happen.  AV and other technology providers expanded their virtual offerings to fit the needs.  As our industry bounces back it’s time to evaluate our recent successes and failures to strategically move forward.  This panel of both planners and suppliers will explore these shifts to find out what we’ve learned and how events will look in the future.

4:10 – 5:00 PM: MIXOLOGY LESSON AND VIRTUAL NETWORKING EVENT

Join us for a fun mixology class sponsored by J. Shea, followed by short one-on-one networking sessions allowing attendees to mix, mingle and meet someone new!
