2020 has certainly been a year to remember! We all have done our parts to ensure the health and safety of others, including cancelling all gatherings until further notice. As we work in the event industry, this put a halt to our plans.
Without conferences and events, our team has had to adapt as the pandemic moved along. As we reflect on the past year, we are sharing four things that we have done since March.
Shift to Virtual Events
Did you know that we have shifted to hosting virtual conference? We have used this past year to expand our knowledge base about virtual events and dove head-first in to host our first two virtual conferences over Fall reading week.

We Started Working at an on-campus Screening Desk
The Brock Campus has been progressing through a phased reopening process. Currently there’s limited access for on-campus courses and research purposes.
Due to the increase of students, faculty, and staff, there was a need for staff members to work entry points to the University to greet and screen those accessing campus.
Since the summertime our team has been using our amazing customer service skills to assist in working these desks to ensure those accessing campus are safe to do so. We’re proud to able to help encourage the safety of the Brock Community and the wider Niagara Region.
We Started This Blog
We wanted to share our skill sets and services with the world, so we made the decision to start a blog that provides monthly posts about various event planning topics to help you plan your next conference or event.
We Started a Monthly E-Newsletter
To keep our clients up to date we started a monthly newsletter. Through this last year, we have focused on reaching out to our clients to see how they are doing, lend support and to share what’s happening at Brock. . Starting this newsletter allowed us to stay in touch and provide updates about the University.
Subscribe to our monthly newsletter and keep up to date with anything Conference and Event Services!
As we wrap up 2020, we would like to take a moment to thank each and every one of our clients who have put their trust in us as we navigated the last 8 months. You are the reason we love what we do and we cannot wait for the day we can welcome you back to campus once again.
All the best for a safe and healthy remainder of your 2020. We’re looking forward to connecting with you virtually in the New Year to help plan your next online event!
