GBACtv Explores the Future of EventsMay 12, 2021
Mass gatherings and events hosted in stadiums, convention centers, and other large capacity facilities and venues have suffered during the COVID-19 pandemic and continue to face ongoing challenges.
In the latest episode of GBACtv, a new webcast series produced by the Global Biorisk Advisory Council™ (GBAC), a Division of ISSA, and ISSA Media, a panel of experts from the events and venue industry grade the COVID-19 response and discuss challenges that emerged during the pandemic. They discuss the status of events and forecast what they see for the future of mass gatherings.
Is large-scale testing of attendees a viable solution? What about designating vaccinated and unvaccinated sections in stadiums or convention centers? Are “vaccine passports” worth considering? What behind-the-scenes actions by events mangers protect attendees? How does improving indoor air quality protect those who enter buildings?
You will hear responses on these questions and topics from:
- David DuBois, president and CEO of the International Association of Exhibitions and Events
- Mark Herrera, director of education and life safety at the International Association of Venue Managers
- Rick Simon, president and CEO of the United Service Companies.
