As loyal BizSense readers know, live events have been part of our mojo for more than 10 years.
But as our usual event format has gone out the window in the age of coronavirus, we’re bringing the show online.
We’re proud to announce BizSense Assembly, a live weekly online panel discussion series that will dissect how the pandemic is trickling through specific industries in the Richmond-area economy.
These 30-minutes panels will run every Wednesday at 11 a.m. for the foreseeable future, each week featuring a new slate of industry-specific speakers. We’ll explore how the virus is plaguing hotels, real estate developers and brokers, hotels, restaurants, lenders and more.
The first installment will run tomorrow, April 1, with a focus on Richmond’s restaurant industry. Click here to register.
These events will be open only to BizSense newsfeed subscribers and are limited to 500 attendees, so they likely will fill up fast. If you miss one, fear not, as we’ll be back each week with a new topic.
It costs $10 to register and 50 percent of each ticket sold will go to Feed More.
The forums will run via Zoom, a popular video conferencing app that allows viewers to ask questions of the panelists.
Here’s how it will work: Subscribers will get an email from BizSense to register for the talk. Once registered, you’ll get an email on the day of the event with instructions about how to log into the conversation. Once online, you and your 499 fellow viewers will see and hear from the panelists and moderator, with an option to submit written questions.
We hope you’ll take part in these lively discussions, as open communication and flow of information is more important than ever. The goal here is to educate, inform and lift everyone’s spirits with a little facetime.
Stay tuned for more details.
