Hi! Ten year veteran of convention planning here (@mischiefmanagement) with some info that some may find useful: As events continue to cancel because of #covid19, and gatherings of large sizes become outlawed, here are some things we find ourselves explaining
to family and friends a lot, which might explain a few things — especially about why organizers sometimes wait so long to make the call.
We all know events are large and complicated things, and cancellations are expensive.
But the METHOD of cancellation is incredibly, incredibly important. The method of cancellation can mean all the difference, especially for companies without giant owners or a cache of investors to pull from.
