British business messaging app Guild has set up CREO (Coronavirus Response for Event Organisers) as a peer support group for anyone due to run an event in the next six months.
The group gathered over 100 members within 24hrs of set up. Members include event organisers from around the world as well as professional membership associations for event organisers. Specialist experts on PR, comms, crisis management, legal, insurance, health and safety etc. have also been invited into the community to help.
The CREO community has also crowd-sourced a document (the "CREO Manual") to capture the advice, resources and insights generated by the group. This is publicly available for anyone to read and share and can be found at Read full release
