    Just like everything this year, we’re sure your Thanksgiving plans likely look a little different. Despite that, remember how grateful we are for you, your organizations, and your support for our industry throughout the good and the challenging times. We’re not quite out of the dark days just yet, but with the advancement of vaccines, we maintain more than just hope for resuming more live events with you, one day. And we know, while life is different these days, one cannot discount silver linings

    Happy Thanksgiving, we are thinking of you.  Read More

    Hello, September. For many the start of this month often signals a new year of learning, and that - like most things this year - will look very different. In-person? Hybrid? Fully virtual? An “event” of its own we wait to see how this too unfolds.

    In this new season and new age of continued learning, we continue to evolve and find the next steps we’ll take for both the normal we’re creating as a world and for events. Stay strong, and please...stay connected with SISO. Read More

    We empathize with you in the fact that these past several months have not been easy and that there is still a road ahead to travel before live events return to a truly new normal. Although it has been tough, not all has been bad. Innovations in technology, our industry and many others will have a profound impact on all of us moving forward. That being said, it is important that no matter what, we stand together. We look forward. And, that we travel that road ahead together.

    How many steps forward? How many steps back? New quarantines - for different state-to-state travel, and more...The pace of change these days is fast, even if it may feel as though we’re barely moving. As the summer heat drags on, do not get discouraged. Our industry and the business of live events will return. We will bounce forward, not just back. Let’s continue to do our part to ensure a strong return, eventually.

We must remain hopeful and remember that live events have returned in some places and will return for us all, eventually. Until then, get educated, connect with your fellow members, and engage in meaningful discussions that will help your organization and our industry in our evolving new world.

    Hello, July! Just like that, we find ourselves in the thick of summer. We recognize depending on what country, or what state in the USA, you’re reading this from may impact your outlook. Some places are faring quite well, while we know others have fallen back down a bit. We offer you recaps, resources, and more. 

    Let’s remain not just hopeful, but do our part in continuing to advocate for the events industry. SISO remains the key supporter for the industry’s Go Live Together Coalition, and we’re sharing more on legislative and advocacy efforts below.
