Northstar Meeting Group, August 3, 2021 - As #eventprofs prepare for large-scale in-person events, what better playbook to learn from other than the 2021 Tokyo Olympics. Jason Gewirtz of Sports+Travel shares the COVID at the Olympic games as part of the press in Tokyo.
Jason has been covering the Olympics for several years, but this year's Games have been an experience like no other. Even with no spectators permitted, an estimated 50,000 people will visit Tokyo for this year's competitions. All were issued extensive Covid-safety protocols to follow before and during the event.
In this week's episode of Eventful, Gewirtz shares his experience with Loren Edelstein, vice president and content director for Northstar Meetings Group, and explains how the Olympics might set an example in Covid safety for other large-scale global events.
