The Best Social Media from the Events Industry
Charlie Chaplin was born on April 16th, 1889. English comic actor, filmmaker, and composer, he is well-known for silent films but he also did the Great Dictator where he gives the famous final speech pleading for humanity and unity.
This resonates with the pandemic situation and the EventProfs community.
Now let's see the most inspiring & fun social media content this week fresh from the Events industry!

The positive news we needed to read. Seeing all these hotels closed for such a long time in every city has been so depressing for the events and hospitality industry.

I'm seeing so many event planners starting new positions and that's very encouraging for the industry. Congrats to you all and thank you for sharing the positive energy!
Physical events are also raising awareness on lots of society issues such as domestic abuse. With multiple lockdowns, statistics show there's been an increase in violence. It's essential to answer and support those who are committed to fighting for human rights and against violence of any kind. Charity events need to happen in the online world too, give survivors a voice!
Interesting poll regarding the social audio interest from users. Twitter Spaces is creating more expectations than Clubhouse. Including android users right away has been the competitive advantage of Twitter (well and obviously the platform has been around for longer so it's easier for development and sponsoring to leverage the brand fame).
I mean I have to say quality of life in that sense is a blessing!
It would be interesting to see the analytics of how many attendees would be excited to attend tradeshows & play via virtual reality instead of being face to face in real life. What is your guess, 50/50? I'm team F2F!
