This week has been a turning point in the novel coronavirus storyline, as it was officially deemed a pandemic by the World Health Organization, cities and entire countries have shut down almost completely, and some notable figures have announced they've been confirmed to be carrying the virus.
Since one of the main recommendations from health organizations and leaders around the world is to avoid mass gatherings, many companies (including some of our customers) have been forced to postpone events until a later date, or cancel them altogether. We absolutely stand behind this measure, as the most important thing to focus on right now is the health of our communities, and doing our part to flatten the curve of contagion.
Though we don't know the extent of it yet, this virus is undoubtedly having an impact in the global economy as well as within each region and country. Event cancellations means less flights, less hotel stays, less tourism, and cancellation of all freelance vendors. This is inevitable, but it is also temporary. It's not the time to panic; it's time to get creative.
Our team has been hard at work creating some thought pieces and helpful assets that aim to offer solutions in various areas this virus is impacting, such as the events industry, and even telecommuting. This page will remain Nytro's one-stop shop to host all of these items, and you can keep checking back here to see what's new in terms of our recommendations during each phase of this pandemic. Here's what we've got:
- Blog Post: 3 Things To Avoid if You're Cancelling an Event
- Infographic: Dealing With Coronavirus COVID-19 In Events
- Blog Post: Achieving Your Event Goals When You Can't Do Events

We will continue closely monitoring the measures recommended by all health organizations and country leaderships over the coming weeks, and we will keep sharing recommendations and tips based on the best practices we find moving forward. If you have any questions whatsoever or recommendations from past experiences, we'd love to hear from you. Please leave a comment or send a private message.
