And, going on Maurer reflected on why workers in the field have to continue to make the most of the workforce, “It was important before the pandemic, but now it’s even more important – It’s critical for success.”
This past year was challenging for The Event Planning Industry as it was many others, but as New York City and other states are opening up, event and meeting planners, as well as Marketing and PR Executives, are ready to start planning events for the rest of 2021 and 2022. Now more than ever, it’s so important for the events industry to gather so venues and services can showcase what they have to offer and planners to execute events for their clients.
The opening party at SPIN was a huge hit, as well a the Educational Speaker Series at 92Y (1395 Lexington Ave.) with Keynote Speakers Daymond John from ABC’s hit show “Shark Tank,” as well as Celebrity Event & Wedding Planner Colin Cowie.
