Reimagining Events in 2021 and Beyond

Presentation by Lisa Marks, Owner, Brand Alive Inc.
PHplDhmpQ0GA4CK21NRL_Lisa Marks 2019-M.jpgThe live events industry was brought to its knees in 2020, calling on corporations, non profit leaders and brands to roll up their sleeves and get creative about using experiential tactics. While in-person events are restricted with no definitive insight into when we will be able to gather again, live experiences are still possible. Join us as we hear from Lisa Marks, owner of Alberta based corporate event strategy and planning company Brand Alive Inc, as she shares the journey she and her clients have been on to reimagine events and experiences in the new post-pandemic landscape. Lisa will share her personal story with COVID-19 and share the unique challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for events in 2021 and beyond.

Do you want to continue your AFP membership for the many learning and networking opportunities it provides but the cost of membership feels prohibitive right now?

AFP has a simple solution … a monthly payment plan!
(It's kind of like monthly giving, but different)
The “Installment Plan” option breaks your annual membership fee into manageable monthly payments over the course of the year. The Installment Plan option is limited to the Professional of Associate categories of membership only. This Option is only available to members when they renew and to newly joining members. It is not available for auto-renew and you must also belong to both the AFP Global association and a local chapter. Only the annual AFP dues will be divided into 12 regular installment payments. Find out more here.
