What Re-Opening Our Events May Look Like and How to Prepare Now for Maximum Success

Jeff English, CFEE, General Counsel

CLARK Material Handling Company, Lexington, KY

In the midst of many challenges that we do not yet control, it is important that we do everything possible to proactively lead, drive and map where we are headed. Understanding that the future will include many new expectations, it is important that we start preparing now for when we may be able to reopen our festivals and events. This committee began to define the new expectations that all events can use to overlay with their formally ‘normal’ events, with the goal of re-imagining how you might put those expectations into place and prepare for the effects they may have on operational plans, as well as financial and human resources.
Jeff English, CFEE is the General Counsel and Corporate Secretary for CLARK Material Handling Company in Lexington, KY. Previously, he served for 13 years as General Counsel for the Kentucky Derby Festival, Inc. and as President of the Kentucky Derby Festival Foundation.

The When, Why and How Considerations Behind Re-Presenting a Postponed or Cancelled Event

Jeff Curtis, CEO, Portland Rose Festival Foundation, Portland, OR
Alison Baringer English, Executive Director, North Carolina Azalea Festival, Wilmington, NC

As events of all sizes, budgets and histories are placed in the previously unimagined position of having to postpone and/or cancel those events, due to local, state, regional or national COVID-19 safety restrictions, how do we effectively Re-Present those same events to protect our brands, help drive revenues, protect sponsorship values, support our communities, and/or meet other stakeholder obligations. And, acknowledging likely finite staff and fiscal resources, should we? This committee addressed the important considerations involved in assessing next best steps and selected examples of what seems to be working for others reinventing their own wheel.

Festivals – The Drivers to Re-Connecting Our Communities

Keli O'Neill Wenzel, CFEE, President/CEO, O'Neill Marketing & Event Management, Kansas City, MO
Stephen King, CFEE, Executive Director, Des Moines Arts Festival, Des Moines, IA

Perhaps one of the most positive outcomes of this global pandemic, has been the (re)opening of doors/conversations with many community stakeholders that we may have lost touch with, or never thought to work in partnership with before. We know what our events contribute to our respective communities and that is usually one of the primary personal drivers/rewards for those in our industry. This committee addressed how our events/organizations might lead the efforts to keep our communities bonded during these difficult times, to ensure the long-term health of all events, and how we might work more closely with our cities, other events and organizations, volunteers, artists and vendors, sponsors, et al. to help all of our communities come through this storm stronger and keep all of our events financially secure and healthy.

How ArtsQuest Successfully Pivoted Amid the Challenges of 2020

Curt Mosel
Chief Operating Officer
ArtsQuest
Bethlehem, PA

On March 19, 2020 Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf ordered all non-life-sustaining businesses to close across the commonwealth to help stop the spread of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). Not only would ArtsQuest be one of the first organizations to close its doors and one of the last to fully reopen, we needed a plan that would allow us to overcome these most challenging times. We had to change course immediately to preserve the organization and at the same time continue to offer access to the arts as a way of helping small businesses and the community at large. While the pandemic has had a devastating impact for all arts and cultural organizations across the globe, there is always opportunity even in the most desperate situations.
Curt Mosel leads the teams responsible for marketing, public relations, ticketing, operations, merchandise, IT and corporate partnership initiatives supporting the nonprofit’s arts and cultural programming for the region. These events and programs include Musikfest, the nation’s largest free music festival; 12 arts and cultural festivals; and the programs of the ArtsQuest Center and SteelStacks, an adaptive reuse of the city’s former Bethlehem Steel plant that has transformed the old mill into a thriving arts and entertainment district.

Curt is a graduate of the University of Iowa, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in communications, with a minor in business administration. He began his professional career in entertainment in ticket sales, before advancing into corporate partnerships with the Minnesota Timberwolves and the WNBA’s Minnesota Lynx. In addition, he served as Director of Sales for Major League Soccer’s Chicago Fire, and spearheaded the marketing efforts for The Morning Call daily newspaper most recently before joining ArtsQuest in 2010.

With his experience in sports & entertainment marketing and event planning, Curt has successfully led the development of several dynamic arts and cultural programs for ArtsQuest and the Lehigh Valley region of Pennsylvania including the FIFA World Cup™ SoccerFest & Viewing Party in 2014 which was named one of the Best New Events of 2014 by the International Festivals and Events Association.

Bridging Troubled Financial Waters During the COVID Crisis

Jeff Curtis, CEO
Tanya Wilkins, Finance Manager
Portland Rose Festival Foundation
Portland, OR

When the COVID crisis erupted, event organizations like the Portland Rose Festival Foundation were forced to refocus their entire operations, including their financial management. Learn how a 5.9 million dollar nonprofit festival avoided depletion of vital financial reserves by creating cash management bridges that spanned months where traditional revenue went unrealized. Rose Festival leaders share the deceptively simple systems now in place to budget and forecast the cash available to pay for the overhead and operations of Oregon's largest event. Attendees will learn more about establishing new budget philosophy while working with essential Board oversight, as well as the resource management and revenue retention techniques the Rose Festival successfully used to ensure the tenured festival's endurance.

Prosperity During a Pandemic: How Christmas in the Park Thrived in 2020

Cassie Dispenza, Vice President Strategic Partnerships

Saffire, Austin, TX
Jason Minsky, Executive Director

Christmas in the Park, San Jose, CA

There’s no doubt, 2020 was one of the hardest years ever for the live event industry. Event cancellations were rampant, as many organizations were presented with no clear path to move forward among ever-increasing pandemic concerns. However, Jason Minsky and the team at Christmas in the Park in San Jose, California had a different idea. Convert a free admission half-million attendee walk through display of Christmas cheer to a ticketed drive through experience instead. Not exactly a “walk in the park”! In this session, join Cassie Dispenza, Saffire, as she has an open discussion with Jason on the ups & downs his team went through to pull off their biggest challenge to date, and how they plan to carry many of their ideas forward in 2021. We’ll cover strategies for executing your own in person event this year and discuss options for the event industry to safely get back to business.
