Executive Briefing with Alan Brown

Update for July 19, 2021: Join us for this 30-minute briefing on the latest findings from the Audience Outlook Monitor study. Results for July focus on audience perceptions of changing conditions due to the latest surge in Covid-19 infection rates in some areas of the US, and the conditions that audience members are likely to place on their attendance at live events (i.e., pre-requisites and deal-breakers). After six months of improving conditions, July results suggest a slow-down, or, in some cases, a regression in key indicators. (video, 30 min.)
