We’ve all had to adapt quickly to virtual working, learning and socialising this year. Honing our collective online dexterity so that we can effortlessly jump into seminars, performances, conferences and even exhibitions – all from the comfort of our homes. While face-to-face interaction and live events will never go away, virtual events offer a great alternative for connecting with industry peers and customers. In the future, hybrid event programmes (a mix of virtual and live audiences) will be commonplace – there’s no better time to learn the ropes!

In recent months we have seen the cancellation of many exhibitions and events, an unfortunate but understandable consequence of COVID-19. However, this has not stopped us from planning and executing conferences and get-togethers. We are now taking our plans digital. So, how do you attract people to attend your digital events? For our latest press launch we went with cocktails…… well, not just cocktails, the strong message and newsworthy content we had to share was vital but cocktail hour didn’t hurt either.
Design Havens for Heroes is a charity initiative launched by interior designer, Francesca Rowan-Plowden to bring together an inspiring community of talent from the interior design field. The aim is to create room makeover “havens” for accredited NHS key workers who have been working on the front line during the COVID-19 crisis, and who will, undoubtedly, need the benefit of rest and calm in their own homes, after dealing with the emotional and physical demands of tackling the pandemic.
