During this two-hour hack-a-thon you will meet with people from around the world and across the events industry and all its colourful sectors to re-imagine the next six months, the next two years and beyond.
We will host parallel two-hour video calls with each curated team. They will then record a message of positivity and imaginings for everyone to view.
We will choose six team leaders to come together for an additional webinar in the following weeks, open for all to view.

This meeting will be to reimagine the event sector for the rest of 2020 and beyond.
Will there be events at all? Will events be allowed and in what format? How long might we have to do social distancing and what does that look like at an event? What does this mean for food and beverage health and safety and service, accessibility, safety, logistics, crowd control?
Let's discuss the role of events in rebuilding community. Might we all end up being distrustful of each other or might we come out stronger as we all went through this together? What does that mean for the spirit of events?
What does the short term job prospect look like? What are our transferable skills and how could they be deployed in the next six months?
As cities start to awake and new ways of doing business are devised, how can we structure event processes to be more sustainable and get policies in that will be beneficial?
What flow-on benefits could we see to environmental impacts and resource conservation because of this lock down. What does this mean for 'sustainable events' moving ahead?
Is this going to be a nightmare and single-use is the new norm because of fear of contamination? How will we deal with that?
What solutions needs to be innovated and where are the opportunities for us working in this sector, either for events or transferable to other needs?
If you know of any futurists, economists, business forecasters, psychologists, therapists, career coaches, or others that can participate in each group, please encourage them to sign up too.
If you have any special non-event skills that will be useful in the hack-a-thon, please also list them in the form!
