COVID CONVERSATIONS

The current Corona crises is affecting us all. At Indiandribble we postponed no less than 9 events just days before lockdown, and since then the guesstimation of the new postponed dates are moving further away day by day. We’re not even sure these events and activations will still happen this year.
 
Yet, this time is the perfect opportunity to get in touch with a few of peers in various industries. Asking them how they are coping with the situation and how they are preparing for the post corona future.
