The last 12 months have seen an unprecedented amount of disruption in the most industry, fueled in large part by the coronavirus pandemic. COVID-19 impacted nearly every aspect of the global economy, from supply chains to air travel to IT. The events industry wasn’t spared either, as cancellations, layoffs and falling earnings affected vendors and startups alike.
This is where TH.0’s survival instincts kicked in and not only did we survive as a new company, we thrived! It’s been a fantastic year full of major highs and minor lows but we’ve come out of it stronger and smarter.
TH.0 takes a look back at the milestones, events, highlights and stories that dominated our year.
