The Exhibition and Event Association of Australasia (EEAA) will host a series of industry updates to address the current and future market conditions for the key sectors of the exhibition and business events industry. Claudia Sagripanti, EEAA chief executive said, "The current market conditions have created uncertainty with many companies experiencing impacted cash flow and decreased return on investment. Our main focus for the sector-specific webinar series is to draw out the deeper issues that need to be addressed and develop sector-specific strategies that will create momentum and aid in the return of in-person exhibitions and business events". Each session will feature a panel of key sector representatives, moderated by EEAA board members, including Spiro Anemogiannis, EEAA president and managing director, Informa Australia; Brian Thomas, managing director, Reed Exhibitions Australia and Claudia Sagripanti, EEAA chief executive. The first session will be the venue update on September 10, followed by supplier update on September 17 and finally, the organiser/association update on October 1, 2020. Key topics for discussion include COVIDSafe updates and plans, state-by-state restrictions, technology updates, post-pandemic disruption, resourcing, and government and commercial support. (kf)
