The Recovery Sessions is a series of conversations – free to subscribers – on the latest developments around the COVID-19 pandemic & the roadmap to reopening

The next Recovery Sessions takes place on Thursday 21 October at 16:00 UK time.

Recovery Sessions: Arenas Working Together
Continuing with IQ‘s virtual Recovery Sessions, our next online debate will look at the recovery of the arena market, and how these principal touring grounds are working collectively to reignite the live music sector.

From new developments in mitigation measures and strategies, to new and more collaborative actions across the venue space, Recovery Sessions: Arenas Working Together will examine how these crucial buildings come back better.

Guest Speakers:
Chair: Olivier Toth, Chair of European Arenas Association (LX)
Coralie Berael, Forest National – Vorst Nationaal (BE)
Tony Goldring, William Morris Endeavor (US)
Steve Homer, AEG Presents (UK)
Paul Twomey, Biosecurity Systems (AU)

Beyond Covid-19, with sustainability now a must-tackle issue, and the ongoing race to provide the perfect customer experience, what lies ahead for the arena sector, and how are leaders in the field seeing the path ahead?
