YOUR SAFETY AND COMFORT ARE OUR TOP PRIORITIES
Any events on this website will be done within any and all CDC and WHO Guidelines at the time they are produced. Aside from the aformentioned we will be taking additional steps including distribution of individual hand sanitizers, disinfectant wipes for all exhibit spaces, and individually wrapped food and drinks to ensure the health and safety of all who attend and participate.
If we can’t support you at your worst, than we don’t deserve you at your best.
As the COVID-19 Pandemic struck and mass layoffs hit our industry almost immediately, we knew it was time to act. We also knew that as things come back, millions of unemployed in our industry are going to learn the old adage, “You only matter until you don’t”. The same organizations who’ve embraced these planners and suppliers for their business for years, will now turn their back on them in their most vulnerable time of need.
It is in times like this when our humanity needs to shine brighter than our business instinct. You are our friends, our neighbors, and our colleagues. You are people just like us, and if we can’t do everything possible to help you at your worst, then we don’t deserve you at your best.
What we’re doing to help
Attached to each of the 6 Expo Stops on the Roadshow (NYC, Philadelphia, DC, Boston, Albany and Stamford) we’ll be holding special FREE events for job seekers to join us to connect with assistance. You’ll be able to get a new headshot taken, get resume and linkedin help, free gifts and special offers from us and others, and learn about the various resources we’re assembling to help you.
#SaveTheMeetings Resource Site
We will be maintaining a FREE online database of resources available right here on SaveTheMeetings.org. This database will be available to all Job Seekers, regardless of whether you are able to attend one of the ELEVATE Events or not. You’ll be able to access all of the resources we are compiling from our Helping Hands Coalition, with absolutely no cost to you.
