Best Practices

Here are some immediate action steps and best practices to help you. Click each link below for further instructions.

  • If possible, change your event from in-person to virtual.
  • Postpone or reschedule your event to a later date.
  • Offer a deferment option to attend next year’s event. This option can be offered to sponsors, participants as well as vendors.
  • Turn on ticket protection with Fanshield if you haven’t already.
  • If your event is not permitted to occur on your event day or you cancel your event, it is a good idea to familiarize yourself in advance with your refund policy and plans, along with your insurance policies. We recommend you contact your insurance broker and/or advisor to review your policies. You may also want to review and enhance your legal waiver and associated text to ensure your protection as an organizer.
  • If you do not currently have a legal waiver and refund policy, we suggest you implement one and add it immediately. We also recommend that you be very proactive with a communication plan with your attendees – reach out early.
