  • How to Survive COVID-19 as a Small Business or Event Organizer

    Ryan Kintz, of Afton Tickets, has put together a complete resource guide for small businesses and events during the COVID-19 pandemic. Click here to see the complete post.

    Today I cover the best action steps small businesses and event organizers can take in order to ensure long time survival of your business or event during this COVID-19 crisis. Including how to suspend your loan and credit card payments, apply for SBA Disaster Relief funding, an alternative to being forced to layoff your employees, and more.

    COVID-19 has been devastating for most small businesses. But for event organizers, promoters, music venues, and entities in the live events industry – COVID-19 has been a complete “show stopper.” Tens of thousands of live events have been shut down by the government and nobody knows how long the live events ban will last.
