Allseated Webinars: Connecting Our Community Webinar Series Recap

When the COVID-19 Pandemic hit, everything from our personal lives to events came to an abrupt halt. During this unprecedented and challenging time, we wanted to do something to bring the event community together. Even if we didn’t have the answers, we could be there for each other as a source of inspiration and positivity.

Allseated immediately launched a new webinar series,  “Connecting Our Community” to serve as the place to share stories and hold informal discussions as a way to stay focused and remain hopeful.

The connection we established with panelists and attendees during these webinars was more than we could have hoped for when we formed the series. The sessions were inspiring and motivational, even as the situation continues to evolve with uncertainty.  While we strive to move forward during this time period, we are grateful for the event professionals and the industry for joining us to share their experiences, feelings, and ideas as a community.

Below are the recordings from each of the Connecting Our Community webinar sessions. We will continue to run special guest webinars and cover relevant pandemic topis so please click here to view the upcoming schedule.
