In spring 2020, the EITW had already developed several scenarios for the recovery of the event market after the pandemic - these were continued and updated at the end of 2020. Depending on the further course of the pandemic as well as on medical and health economic factors, the market for meetings, congresses and events will be able to recover in a more restrained or more dynamic manner in 2021.

However, the corona pandemic, as the defining issue at the moment, is also having a massive impact on the meetings industry. For the Meeting- & EventBarometer 2019/2020, the EITW therefore also examined the consequences of the Corona crisis on the events market in Germany.
