We think our software users are some of the best event pros on the planet. Ok, so we may be a little biased, but they’ve done some seriously amazing things in response to the crisis surrounding the coronavirus. From creating and selling masks, to developing online games for teams to play virtually, to selling discounted gift cards to their clients, they’re really getting creative in these trying times and pivoting during COVID-19.
