To be frank, 2020 has become a train-wreck. Nobody could have predicted that 2020 would turn out the way it has, the least of the being conference professionals. Due to COVID-19, Gartner stated they canceled or postponed conferences until August, therefore taking a $158 million dollar hit in Q2 revenues. The conference business as a whole is also predicted to take a revenue hit of $22 million during Q3.
