Holding events in Mexico after high COVID infections

We cannot pass up the opportunity to have a platform that can reach thousands of people and not talk about the events in Mexico and the COVID pandemic. Specifically how events have started to take place despite the high infections in the country.

One of the recommendations is that they should be held with a reduced capacity to respect social distancing, and as long as they are stored in open spaces. 

But we want to go further, so that you become aware of this and, based on this, achieve the same success in your next event.

Celebration of events in Mexico, an ongoing controversy post COVID

Many will say that they are in favor, and many others will say that it is not the best thing to do, because the risk is still very high. In many cases, the same social pressure forces them to take a position that may not be the best.

Now, the best places to hold a team or client meeting are located in states far from the CDMX. Such as the Riviera Maya or the beautiful haciendas that can be found in practically every state.

But let’s face it, the coronavirus exists and is taking many lives every day due to the lack of care and commitment of citizens and companies that continue to hold events.

We fully understand that companies could go bankrupt if they do not continue to carry out events. But let us tell you that you have excellent solutions, being one of the best and the most used in recent times to partner with amazing apps for events.

Unfortunately, opinions are divided, and the authorities themselves must be guided by the recommendations made by the Mexican Ministry of Health. And if they say that it is not a risk to hold events, those in charge of these events will see in such words an opportunity not to lose public and money.

The responsibility is yours

If we were guided by what the authorities recommend, we would really be closing one week and opening another. Repeating this action as a vicious circle, so we want you to become aware of what is happening and take your own measures. Because many people will be in your charge if you decide to hold an event.

Beyond what the authorities say, it is a matter of being informed a little bit every day and seeing that contagions and deaths continue to increase. Therefore, the best thing you can do is to stop holding events in which a large number of people gather. Also, a great option is to do them in a hybrid way. That is to say, quantity at home and another on-site. But as long as the sanitary measures are respected.

Finally, it is everyone’s responsibility to make COVID start to disappear. And don’t mention that it will be all over with vaccines. Because that is not the case. 

Specialists worldwide repeatedly say that despite inoculating the population and creating the so-called “herd” effect, the population must continue to respect the measures to curb the pandemic’s consequences.

But then, what can companies do to stay in touch with their employees, their customers or the public? We’ll talk about that below.

The solution for events after COVID on the new normal in Mexico

When all this started in 2020 many companies disappeared and many others continued to operate, with too much fear. But it was a matter of time to find the solution, and this solution is called apps for events.

Darwin mentioned natural selection as the main responsible for the disappearance of thousands of species in the past. And that is exactly what happened last year. Companies that fail to adapt to the new rules and the “new normal” are doomed to failure.

But nothing lasts forever, and soon apps became a great solution.

These can be used for any purpose you want, whether you are planning to organize an event such as a congress, a conference, an awards ceremony, a trade show, a conference or even a team building event.

The most popular alternatives and the ones with which large companies are satisfied are:

  • MeetMaps
  • Brella
  • Hopin
  • Rowing
  • vFairs
  • Virtway
  • eNubes
  • Eventtia
  • Vimeet

If you ask us which one is the best, the truth is that they all have their own thing. It really depends on what you and your company are looking for. 

We can recommend that you try at least 3, read the reviews of other companies and decide which one best suits your needs.

Make your company lean towards the glass half full

We understand you very well if you tell us that there is no comparison with a live event, in which you have direct contact with people and can perceive their adrenaline, excitement and happiness. But also the responsibility has to be on everyone’s part and what better than to set an example.

Big brands have not thought twice and have made apps their best allies to make massive meetings a success. That’s why we want you to know the benefits that an event app can offer your company:

  • You can improve the management and dynamization of the event.
  • Better diffusion of the brand image.
  • Best speakers.
  • Cost savings.
  • Less time for preparation.
  • Longer range.
  • Improved accessibility.
  • Increased geographic coverage.
  • Innovation.

In summary, we can say that it is unfortunate that events are starting to be held in Mexico despite the increase in COVID infections. But it is up to you and your company’s vision to contribute a grain of sand in reducing these through applications for events. These can provide an organization with incredible benefits.
