with special guest Sheila Oranch, Innkeeper/JP/Wedding Planner, Coppertoppe Inn & Retreat Center, email@example.com
In this 45-minute session Dave will identify what is causing the shift from big weddings and events to smaller weddings that was accelerated in 2020 by the Coronavirus. With the COVID vaccine rollout it is hopeful that sometime in 2021 larger weddings and events will start going back toward more normal attendance levels. But with all the previous restrictions much of the 2021 industry booking “damage” from the cancellations and rescheduling has already been done. So, he will Identify the criteria and timeline that newly engaged couples are using to book their wedding venues now and during the rest of the pandemic and beyond. Plus, Dave will dig deep to share what Innkeepers they have done to endure the wedding downsizing and how those Property Owners managed the COVID required shift to smaller weddings and elopements. Finally, he’ll focus on the how-to process that Innkeepers need to take now with your 2021 online and offline marketing to get in front of the demand for small weddings and virtual events.
