Across the United States, the restaurant industry is implementing new safety guidelines for staff and customers, rearranging their spaces to be more socially distant, and rethinking their operations to adapt to a post-lockdown world. The good news is that customers are all in.
Event professionals that joined our weekly Social Hour virtual roundtable this week reported that in Nashville and Las Vegas, customers are eager to come back. Reservations are selling out and event leads are starting to come in. Several event managers said they’ve started to book new social events for 2020. They’re also receiving inquiries about holiday parties and corporate clients are scheduling events in 2021.
