Event Production & Marketing Consultation
by Pat Paolino Cruz
Around the world, festivals, social events, conferences and community events are being cancelled or postponed due to concerns over the spread of COVID-19. Event organizers have had to make difficult decisions about how to proceed, and would-be attendees' question whether they should plan to go.
With new recommendations emerging daily, both large and small-scale events have been affected, including our own lineup which includes; Taste of Rhode Island, Empower Women’s Expo, Rhode Island Health and Wellness Fair, Rhode Island Christmas Village and our monthly Networking Events.
The US Center for Disease Control and Prevention has recommended all gatherings and events of 50 people or more be postponed at this time. We are disappointed that we must POSTPONE our events until it has been deemed safe for all. We will not be NOT CANCELLING events but feel the health and welfare of not only our attendees, but our exhibitors and staff must take precedence.
Events play an important role in community life and research has repeatedly shown that attending festivals and community events has benefits to both guests and the local business community. This pandemic, like others, will eventually taper off. When that happens, festivals and events that bring people together with the local business community will be an important part of recovery.
We remain excited to return; In the meantime, exhibitor deposits will be held and transferred to new dates once determined. If you are a guest that would like to attend one of our signature events or a business that would like to be considered for exhibit space or sponsorship; kindly forward via email: First and Last Name, Business Name (if applicable), Email Address and Phone Number along with name of event you are interested in. We will gladly keep your information on file and update you once events are scheduled. We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you soon!
