Facing reality of future Client Meeting Programs

This 2020 year has been a year unlike any other in the meetings, events, and hospitality industry. After navigating Client programs that have been canceled or postponed, Event & Meeting planners are hopeful that 2021 will bring back business and some semblance of normalcy.   Event business owners, agencies, and third-party suppliers went from a thriving successful year in 2019 to a full ground stop of ALL work in March.   Many are scrambling for survival and trying to find new resources to help many survive during this crisis.

Realty of Client Meeting Programs:
I am beginning to face the hard reality of what the future may hold for Client Meeting programs.  For example, we are facing a Historic Wave of Hotel Foreclosures due to restrictions placed from the CDC / COVID-19.  Many of our client meeting programs were scheduled and placed in beautiful hotels nationally.  Our Client Meeting programs consisted of 75 up to 750 clients attending these meeting programs nationally.  All our clients and the client meeting programs stopped so abruptly.  Never did I think I would be sitting in my office in September-October with no client meeting programs scheduled.

We are entering the last quarter of 2020 year-end.  There are no client meeting programs scheduled in-person, only virtual.  We ALL must restructure and “think outside the box” to reinvent our company services.  Virtual client programs & events are great for safety however, nothing can replace the in-person meetings while greeting clients, interacting with real people versus screen/virtual and simply seeing smiling faces.  I believe in our industry we all miss the hustle and craziness in planning & executing our client meetings & special events.  We all miss the social interactions!

Virtual Client Meetings & Events:
On a positive note, my company has moved in the direction of planning, developing, and launching Client Virtual meetings & events.  TSE Staffing is capable of inviting all attendees directly, assist, and train all clients/attendees needing direction to sign-on to virtual meeting platforms.  It can be frustrating for many of those who have never used Zoom, or Microsoft Teams, and so many others.  Once you understand the platform, it is very easy to use and maneuver.  TSE Staffing can assist Meeting Planners and Companies to ease the stress in creating a large client virtual conference, meeting, or special event successfully.

My promise to myself and the many out there nationwide waiting for my Job Postings to begin.  I will stay strong, stay positive, and believe we will come back bigger, better, and stronger!

Covid remains & here comes a new month!

 

Covid remains

 

 

 

 

 

We are now entering a new month!  This 2020 year has been the most agonizing, health fearing, anxiety-ridden time.  I would have never thought back in March I would be flying thru many months anticipating my future.  The COVID pandemic has forced so many to rethink, reevaluate, and reinvent our lives, work, and family.  It’s not that easy to do!  I struggle each day wondering if I am doing enough, searching for answers, what do I need to do next with my business.  I question my actions, which I have never done prior to COVID.

I am grateful for what I have.  There are so many others who are struggling, fearing homelessness, losing family members, losing jobs, and needing food to feed their family.  I remind myself each day how grateful I am for everything I do have.  I stay strong and positive every day!  I tell myself “this all will pass”.  I am anxious to regain my somewhat normal day.  I miss my normal workday.  Have our “normal” lives changed permanently?  Has our “normal” daily schedule now become the “new normal”?  I am not sure I like the “new normal”.

I challenge myself to reinvent myself and my company, restructuring everything.  I look for new and old passions.  I search for new possibilities that will help to sustain my company.  Each day is a struggle to come up with new ideas.  Each day I push fear and the unknown away from my thoughts.  It can be exhausting!

On so many professional levels, I miss working with a variety of people across the USA.  I long for the interactions and hustle of each business day.  Managing over 200 client meeting programs per month can be exciting, filled with changes, long days, but loving every minute of it!

I continue to worry about the 100’s of people I came into contact with each day, each week, each month.  I wonder if they are okay and surviving thru the COVID pandemic.  I hope and believe we will be back up and working with the awesome people I work with on our client meeting programs.

There are a number of small and big businesses still struggling.   Conventions, large tours, gig industry, music & entertainment, corporate meetings & special events, sporting venues, meeting planners, and the list goes on.   Many companies are still not able to move forward with plans, due to the COVID restrictions.

We shall all stand strong, bigger, and be better thru this crazy 2020 year!
