Covid-19

Covid-19

As the largest and most trusted travel media, information and services company in the world, Northstar remains committed to serving the industry during the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. Northstar will continue to offer an unparalleled depth of information and services to every vertical of the travel, meetings and hospitality industries to help lead our partners through this global challenge.

With many countries, cities, counties and states banning gatherings, Northstar has taken the necessary steps to comply with these new regulations, and as a result has postponed events through May 2020. The safety and health of our employees, partners and event attendees is our highest priority. Please refer to individual event websites for updates on postponements and cancellations. We are hoping that by June we will be able to resume our events as scheduled.

While much is unknown about this virus and its impact on society, the economy, and the events and travel industries, one thing is certain: We will recover.

We’ve already seen some signs of recovery in China, where COVID-19 first surfaced and has had the greatest impact, as well as in South Korea and Singapore. We know that the coronavirus can be curtailed and that the vast majority of people with a confirmed case appear to fully recover. 

We know that the next few months will not be easy. Northstar stands in solidarity with our partners and is committed to working with them to navigate this unprecedented challenge.

To this end, we’ve produced a number of resources to help guide partners through this trying time, and have compiled additional resources that our partners have shared with us, as well.

As has been said many times recently by many people in the industry, we will get through this together. For the time being, we may not be able to gather face-to-face, but we have never felt a stronger sense of common purpose uniting us. We hope the resources below can help until we welcome you in person to our events again.
