Our Top Tips For Postponing Your Event

This Spring period has been like no other in recent history and this Summer is set to be impacted just as much. Events across the world have been unable to go ahead due to social distancing measures put in place to protect us all from the spread of Coronavirus. Whilst many events have had to be cancelled completely, if possible it is financially a much less damaging option to find another date for your event to go ahead. Read below to find out some of our top tips for postponing your event.


When postponing your event, it is absolutely essential that you remain transparent with your customers and attendees. You should put out an honest statement to people via social media and email. In this statement let people know exactly the reason behind your decision for postponement. This should ensure your brand maintains a good reputation, by making it clear to people that you are putting their safety first.

Making It Easy

If you do decide to postpone your event, you should ensure the whole process is simple for people however they choose to proceed. Make your contact details easily available so that people can get in touch with ease if they have any queries.  You should also ensure refunds are easily accessible for anyone who can’t make a new date. Then for people still wishing to attend, make everyone aware that their existing ticket will be valid. If anyone voices concerns about the inconveniences caused, it is always smart to offer them a discount or vouchers as a sign of you appreciating their cooperation.

Take Measures For Your New Date

Even after we are out the other side of the current world situation, society may be a very different place. Events in the future may be required to put a range of measures in place to ensure maximum hygiene standards. You should order extra hand sanitizing products and other hygiene products to help maintain your attendees’ peace of mind.
