Attending an In-person Convention or Conference during COVID-19

November 02, 2020

Attending an in-person conference or convention is a precious moment that fosters real social bonds between individuals. Real social bonds are essential for the health & wellbeing of everyone.

However, in a Covid-19 environment, is this still true? How likely is it that people will attend a convention or conference again in the future (and when)? Sodexo commissioned this research with Harris Interactive to understand perceptions of attending a live event as the world deals with the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The survey was targeted to a nationally representative sample of people in four markets: the UK, USA, France and Spain and took place on October 7-8, 2020. A first wave of research was conducted in May-June 2020. Sub-group analysis, between gender and age groups, has also been conducted. These results are shown where significant differences are seen.
