How to Deal With the COVID-19!
I just attended the Meetings Industry Council (MIC) here in Denver, Colorado from March 10-11, 2020. Over 1500 people attended this meeting including both Planners and Suppliers, in the Industry. We all came together to support each other and learn how to deal with the COVID-10.
Thank you to Michael Dominguez for keeping us informed about the COVID-19 situation plus all that is going on within the Industry: https://documentcloud.adobe.com/link/track?uri=urn%3Aaaid%3Ascds%3AUS%3Aa7240c45-7bd4-401c-9d21-faf8d41364eb
