Once There is a Vaccine . . . What Then?

Steven Adelman
Vice President, Event Safety Alliance
Adelman Law Group, PLLC
Scottsdale, AZ

This webinar will gaze longingly towards the post-vaccine horizon to consider which health and safety measures implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic are likely to become permanent parts of event and venue culture. Permanent changes are worth investing in now; temporary changes less so. This look into the future is intended to help you make reasonable decisions in the present.

Steve Adelman is head of Adelman Law Group, PLLC in Scottsdale, Arizona, and Vice President of the Event Safety Alliance. His law practice focuses on risk management, safety, and security at sports and entertainment events, and he serves as an expert witness in lawsuits arising from live events. He is a professor in Arizona State University’s Sports Law and Business program. He is the lead author of the Event Safety Alliance Reopening Guide and the upcoming Crowd Management ANSI standard. He writes the “Adelman on Venues” newsletter and articles for various industry publications. Steve Adelman’s dream is to have a reasonable conversation with a Blue Man.

Cancelling Events Does Not Mean Cancelling Relationships

Bruce Erley, CFEE, APR

President & CEO

Creative Strategies Group
Denver, CO

And the Gold Pinnacle for the “Best Cancellation of an Event” goes to… No one in our industry has ever seen anything like this before. After we emerge from the Five Stages of Grief what can we say we have learned? Since March, CSG has had to manage and renegotiate dozens of sponsorships in the midst of postponements, rescheduling and the cancellation of consumer shows, festivals, bike rides, conferences and concert venue seasons. Along the way, we’ve learned a great deal and discovered a number of strategies to preserve and potentially grow sponsor relationships even as we cancel events.

Bruce L. Erley, CFEE, APR is the President and CEO of the Creative Strategies Group, a full-service sponsorship and event marketing agency based in Denver, Colorado which he founded in September, 1995. Creative Strategies Group (CSG) specializes in sponsorship and event marketing consultation as well as forging partnerships between corporations and events, festivals, nonprofit organizations and other properties. In 2012, Erley served as the World Board Chairman of the International Festivals & Events Association (IFEA). He is a 2015 inductee into the IFEA Hall of Fame. He is Accredited in Public Relations (APR) by the Public Relations Society of America and a Certified Festival & Events Executive (CFEE) by the International Festivals and Events Association.

Technology & Events: Planning for the Best and Preparing for the Worst

Cassie Dispenza
Senior Director of Marketing & Partnerships
Saffire
Austin, TX

Part of what makes it so hard to plan events right now is that it’s impossible to know what the world may look like by the time your event date comes. Will you be able to have an event? If it happens, what will be the requirements? If you plan for an event, and then it gets canceled, how will you execute the cancellation and plan to take it online? Luckily, technology affords us so many opportunities that we wouldn’t have had if we were in this situation even 5 or 10 years ago. Join us as we cover some of the creative ways we’ve seen events adapt and what you can do to plan for your event in the future, regardless of what challenges it may bring.


Cassie Dispenza is the Senior Director of Marketing & Partnerships at Saffire. She has extensive experience with online marketing and event planning and has planned strategic events with many companies including the Austin Sports Commission and the United States Olympic Committee. She started working with Saffire in 2011 and since then, the company has grown from supporting a few great organizations in Texas to partnering with hundreds of unique events, venues and destinations across the country. Cassie loves traveling to conferences to share strategic online planning tactics and doesn’t mind getting her boots dirty if you see her and need an extra volunteer.
