Event-Based Company Transitions To Virtual Events Following COVID-19
Choice Collaboration Consulting started in 2015 and is based in Richmond, VA. Their team has extensive work experience in all aspects of organization and association support. As a remote team, they are able to handle everything that clients need - from event planning and registrations, to the overall day-to-day management. What began as a one-woman shop is now a team of four.
As an event-based company, they have definitely experienced the effects of COVID-19. In January, Choice Collaboration Consulting was setting up the year and planning small events, larger meetings, and 3-5 day conventions. In March,100% of their events were immediately canceled and they spent March-May processing cancellations, rescheduling conventions, and learning how to live in a virtual world. Although their business model has changed a bit, they feel incredibly blessed to be in business at all, as there are so many businesses out there that are struggling to keep their doors open.
Choice Collaboration Consulting has had to educate themselves on the best way to carry on with events online. All of their clients are very different and their needs can be nearly opposite, so there is no 'one-size-fits-all' where online education is concerned. A plus side is that they now have a virtual offering in their portfolio moving forward.
