What we are doing, to get you through Covid

The Elephant in the room

Let’s not deny it, 2020 sure had been a very confronting time, especially for our customers and ourselves. COVID has impacted us all and we have had to learn to live with it. However, as we are eventing pioneers we have taken this in our stride and do as we always do; plan for the worst to make the best come easy!

Motive, haven’t been resting on our laurels waiting for the world to go back to normal. We don’t know when normal will return, so through our Covid 19 journey, we have been listening to our clients, planning ahead, reworking the plan, negotiating with our suppliers and, re-inventing ways for our customers to hold events.

Whether it be limiting sizes, introducing technology as a way to achieve a similar MO for you, or creating more tailored events that are risk-free. We have been working hard to build a robust safe framework that can be rolled out to any event in this pandemic state.

The desire to meet and connect at business events has not changed, how we do this has.
