Connections Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
Updated March 13, 2020

Dear friends of Connections,

We encourage you all for collaboration and support within our community and our industry to find a way forward. Together I am sure, we will get through. Please let us know if we can be of any help, if we can lend a hand – big or small – or if you are in need of a comforting conversation. We are here for you.

Given the current global situation, where gathering together may be challenging, we want to continue to share knowledge and advice with you.

While we will not be holding ConnecTALKS Weddings or Incentives face-to-face, I am pleased to say that we will instead be launching a series of ConnecTALKS webinars which will kick-off next Friday 20 March at 2pm GMT.

The first webinar will be a special segment on crisis management with Jeff Chatterton, founder and president of CrisisTether, a division of Checkmate Public Affairs. Specialising in calming fears and helping clients fall UP, there is no better time than now to host this ConnecTALKS for you.

Following this, we will be presenting webinars on the sectors promised to you, including Weddings on Tuesday 7 April and Incentives on Wednesday 21 April with a more detailed schedule to be confirmed soon. Our social in Dubai will also be rescheduled at a later date.

The global situation changes on a daily basis, but our attention will remain focused on providing our community with a space to collaborate, reassure and support each other. We want to play our part in the recovery and resurgence of our industry, a process we have every confidence will be begin in the near future.

We also wanted to take this opportunity to thank Tokyo Convention & Visitors Bureau and Visit California for allowing us the opportunity to power their events this year. We feel very fortunate and thankful to have been able to deliver these wonderful events.

We left California with a renewed sense of togetherness. I know from the bottom of my heart that we will overcome the challenges we are faced together and with the help of each other. I look forward to a brighter future for our most resilient industry.

Remember, if there is anything we at Connections can do for you, please just let us know.

All the best,
Micaela Giacobbe
