Mark Breakspear, Senior Project Manager, DLC Events

The Senior Project Manager shares how DLC events is dealing with the long-term effects of the global pandemic

The UAE events sector has been hit hard by the colossal loss in revenue caused by the pandemic. Originally, we thought the timing could have been worse; although we lost the end of what was a successful events season for most, we were not so far away from the quiet summer months where all of us budget for little to no turnover for two or three months anyway. Things will be back to normal by September, we thought… However, the bleak reality is that COVID-19 has taken and continues to take a large bite out of the 20/21 season, as we end the year with a greatly reduced calendar.
