Lessons from Executives: Top Attractions Leaders Share their COVID-19 Impact

COVID-19, Crisis Management, E-Book

How do you lead a business, especially an attraction, during a pandemic?  Questions that we have never needed to ask before are now front and center as one of the most impacted industries fights to prove its resilience during the most uncertain time of the last century.

In this e-book, several executives, top leaders, and business owners share valuable insights, making this amongst the most comprehensive resources for attractions industry professionals.  We asked about the first actions taken, what would have been valuable to know at the very beginning, and how this event has disrupted their leadership style for the future.

Please provide your name and email address and you will be provided immediate access to the e-book!

We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to each of the participants who took the time to contribute to this invaluable resource for the attractions industry.
