ONLINE WEBINAR FORUM

In a time of uncertainty that our world has never experienced before, IFEA World is pleased to present a new weekly “IFEA Coronavirus (COVID-19) Forum,” featuring an open and first-hand discussion by and between some of the top professionals in our industry today. When solutions cannot be listed, templated or easily provided, the power of sharing and networking between professional peers become our most valuable and trusted resources.


Join us to listen-in on these valuable discussions that are sure to provide a combination of empathy and understanding; awareness of potential action steps that your organization may want to take or consider; and new insights into any officially provided direction/programs by government and health officials.

IFEA Member Access - Log-In to View Recording

As a result of COVID-19, there are lots of questions you will find yourself asking for the first time. "I work back of house close to other people, so if I get sick, can I sue?" "Can our ushers eject a patron who stands too close to other people in line?" "Does someone who looks sick have a right to come in?" We will address these and many more practical legal questions about how to reopen in a reasonably safe and healthy way.
