How many events were cancelled due to the lockdowns of 2020? A lot! The events industry is said to have recorded losses of around $35 billion in cancelled events in 2020. HeadBox has been closely monitoring Australia’s event booking confidence and noticed a significantly positive shift in recent weeks. It’s time to get those events back in the diary, creating unforgettable memories through the medium of live events. Here are some of the events that are trending at the moment:
Covid 19 has fast-tracked the uptake of remote working online tools. Hangouts, Zoom and Teams are now all household names alongside Miro, Mentimetre and Slido supporting the needs of online workshopping. Each and every tool is great in their own right however, for us, nothing beats an in-person event. Bouncing off colleagues and clients, reading body language, understanding subtle clues, and basking in the energy of the room.

No longer confined to staying seated, you can now mingle to your heart’s content, working the room to find out the latest news amongst your peers.

A Hybrid Conference
It sounds like something Elon Musk would produce and is now a commonplace word in the events sphere due to covid. Simply put, Hybrid means combining an in-person event with a virtual event. Not something you are familiar with? Don’t worry HeadBox has got you covered for all of your Hybrid Conferencing needs.
