The recent covid-19 pandemic has shaken the core of world economies, and financial markets are experiencing high volatility. While this is one of the most discussed topics, we can all agree that every facet of human life has been impacted by this unprecedented global event. Unemployment rates have soared, leaving people in the workforce extremely uncertain and overwhelmed. The coronavirus pandemic has forced us out of our comfort zones and has allowed us to experiment with the “new normal”. For some people, WFH has been a blessing in disguise but, for others, it simply means re-inventing themselves and the work they do. Undoubtedly, one of the worst affected industries has been the event industry. In the past year, we have seen prominent events such as sporting events, exhibitions, private events, and music festivals all being canceled due to the restrictions imposed by governments across the world. Despite these cancellations and bans, event companies have recognized the sheer need for social interaction and have been forced to innovate ways in which they can bring us together. Thus, the trend of virtual events emerged and took over the entire events industry. From conferences to weddings and business events, nothing is ‘virtually impossible’ through online event software. At MAHE Dubai, we pride ourselves on keeping up with changing times and innovating as and when necessary. Hence, recognizing the trend of virtual events, we decided to launch a PG Diploma in Event Management last year.
