With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.

Within our industry, in-person meetings and events are on pause until further notice. While it might seem like there's no end in sight, now is the perfect time to connect with each other about our experiences so far. Let's take the extra time we have and put it towards a goal of feeling less isolated! Here at Meetings + Events, we would be so grateful if you would share your thoughts and feelings with us. If you're willing, please take the following survey, and we can create a dialogue and handle the hard times together!
