How to Thrive

in the Gig Economy

COVID-19 has thrown a wrench into the world of meetings and events and has changed the ways in which people do business. Job loss or a significant drop in income for planners and suppliers has been widespread.

Whether by need or choice, many planners and suppliers are taking advantage of the "gig economy" to make a living from a variety of income sources or to carve out a new path that suits their career, lifestyle, and financial goals. Businesses have embraced the solutions that the freelancer economy presents, and meetings planners and their organizations are taking note. Is the gig economy just a new wave of freelancing, or is it different?

Take part in this vibrant discussion with our panel of freelancers, companies that hire freelancers and a talent professional to discuss their experiences, successes, and challenges.
