"ie" Magazine is looking for articles from YOU on how you are tackling the COVID-19 Pandemic at your Festival/Event and also how our Vendors are refocusing their resources to help with the COVID-19 logistics.
Although it is an absolutely crazy time at the moment and everything is changing every day, once we are through all this (and we will get through all this!) it will of course be a fascinating learning experience which we’d love to document in “ie” Magazine. Although we are all in the thick of things at the moment, if anyone has an interest in sharing their stories, we’re dedicating the entire April issue of “ie” Magazine to the Coronavirus and the impact it has had on the Festivals & Events Industry.
Did you cancel/postpone your event? Did you come up with creative alternatives or change things up to still hold part of your event? Did you go virtual? Did you refocus your efforts and resources to help with logistical efforts to help the COVID-19 response? We want to hear your story!
You could share a play by play of how things happened at your event leading to either postponing your event or the unfortunate cancellation. Or perhaps you want to focus on an educational article focusing on the impact COVID-19 has had on a specific area of your event to help others in the same situation as you (think: Sponsorship/Marketing/Ticketing/Entertainment/Volunteers/Operations/PR etc.) Perhaps you’d like to write an observational article, an inspirational article, a motivational article - your choice! We know you have all gone to herculean efforts during this time. We want to acknowledge that and share your story in “ie” Magazine.
