They have been indefinitely postponed and presently there is no visibility at all on when things might resume to normal.

In this discussion, some of the tallest industry leaders who have worked very closely within the events space come together to address the most pivotal questions that loom over the future of events. What is the future for networking? What are other avenues of showcasing the brands? How long before things start to get better?

"Navigating Businesses in a VUCA World"
Meet Julian Rossy, Asia Representative Fairtiq (Switzerland) Q&A with Aditya Ghosh Board Member, Oyo Rooms.
Navigating Businesses in a VUCA World - "The VUCA world will also have both danger and opportunity, he explains. “Leaders will be buffeted, but they need not allow themselves to be overwhelmed, depressed or immobilized. Leaders must do more than just respond to the whirl of events, though respond they must. They must be positive change agents in the midst of chaos, creating the future. Some things can get better, even as other things get worse.” Uncertainty and complexity aren’t going away — and confusion will remain part of the mix. The next 10 years will be exceptionally volatile, with many make-or-break decisions to be made. What are the leadership skills that immediate and long-term future will need? *source: CCL.ORG"

How to Navigate the Modern Marketing Landscape - Steve Randazzo
No question, the Coronavirus pandemic and COVID-19 present an unprecedented “crisis marketing” challenge to marketers of all types and sizes, consumer and business-to-business marketers alike.

Not all brands survive challenging times and those that do may come out the other side profoundly changed. But we do believe brands matter, even in times of human crisis. We do believe brands can make a meaningful contribution. And finally, we believe that with good management brands can emerge stronger than ever. Here’s how. In times of peace and prosperity it is easy to forget that the human race’s chief advantage is resilience. Our ability to adapt, problem-solve and respond to unexpected challenges is central to our survival and success. COVID-19 will be no different. Brands and businesses have an important role to play. With the right mix of empathy and creativity we can help soften the blow, be a source of inspiration and optimism, and, most importantly, prepare for the opportunities that lie ahead. Let’s discuss. *source: WPP

Retailers are incredibly resilient. Despite everything that’s been thrown at the retail world (from economic turndowns to the threat of a literal apocalypse) it has the ingenuity and perseverance to rise above and emerge stronger.
During any stressful time, the temptation may be to focus on short-term performance via aggressive marketing and sales promotions. The smarter play, however, is to focus on the future. Regardless of the overall impact of this Coronavirus pandemic, the cost of writing off the rest of 2020 and planning to hit reset next year is enormous. Instead, HIT RESET NOW. *Source: CSA

In a short period of time, COVID-19 has overwhelmed lives and livelihoods around the globe. For vulnerable individuals and the customer teams that serve them, it has also forced a rethinking of what customer care means. Suddenly, examinations of customer journeys and satisfaction metrics to inform what customers want have given way to an acute urgency to address what they need.
Particularly in times of crisis, a customer’s interaction with a company can trigger an immediate and lingering effect on his or her sense of trust and loyalty. As millions are furloughed and retreat into isolation, a primary barometer of their customer experience will be how the businesses they frequent and depend upon deliver experiences and service that meets their new needs with empathy, care and concern. Now is also the time for customer experience (CX) leaders to position themselves at the forefront of the longer-term shifts in consumer behavior that result from this crisis. Keeping a real-time pulse on changing customer preferences and rapidly innovating to redesign journeys that matter to a very different context will be key. Source: McKinsey

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed human mobility for those of us washing our hands vigorously and avoiding social contact. But in addition to these disruptions to daily life, the pandemic could be fundamentally changing the face of global migration in at least five key ways. Not everyone wants to leave home, of course, but many (and many more than in 1918) see migration as at least one future pathway, whether it be permanently or temporarily with the hopes to one day return home. In many ways, the global economy relies on people making decisions to migrate: Central American tomato pickers in Florida, Bangladeshi construction workers in Abu Dhabi, and Indian entrepreneurs in Melbourne. Global migration has proven to be an integral and necessary part of our globalized economy, though its face has looked different in every region, country, and city, as well as to each family. Until COVID-19 brought it all to a screeching halt. What are we staring at?

Assumptions from bull market financings or even from a few weeks ago do not apply. Many investors will move away from thinking about ‘growth at all costs’ to ‘reasonable growth with a path to profitability.’ Adjust your business plan and messaging accordingly.
Signs are beginning to emerge that investors are losing appetite to invest in the current scenario.
Investors cautioned startup founders to not take a “wait and watch” approach and assume that there will be a delay in their “receivables,” customers would likely ask for price cuts for services, and contracts would not close at the last minute.

Covid-19 crisis is likely to drive a rapid evolution of consumers attitudes towards digital channels. Many may find themselves buying products online or directly from producers which they would have only considered purchasing from a retailer a few months ago. Others may never have used an online channel before and will suddenly find a safer more convenient way to conduct purchases. Dealers will continue to play a role but few can believe that this role will not evolve from its current form. Whether that’s in the way that servicing is provided, how OEMs sell parts and accessories, the degree of channel integration and OEM oversight, or indeed, how we buy new and used cars. Only time will tell. The next few months will likely see a quieter period with little dealer activity and low volumes for OEMs. Whilst this is challenging to the P&L, it is also an opportunity to accelerate initiatives which have lingered on the shelf for too long or which have been characterised by dipping toes in the water rather than truly grasping the opportunity to evolve business models. Dealers could also look to develop and innovate new services with short-term potential, for example a flying doctor approach to repairs at the customer’s home (if government guidelines allow). What does the future hold for this sector? *Source: Google
