CustomNEWS Launches COVID-19 Resources Site

Show Daily Publisher Shares Marketing and Communications Ideas for Virtual, Hybrid and Live Events
BETHESDA, Md. - May 22, 2020 - PRLog -- COVID-19 has impacted every aspect of the events industry. It has also brought different segments together to share ideas and provide support. CustomNEWS, Inc., an industry-leading publisher of print and digital show dailies, has created a website focused on marketing and communications for virtual, hybrid and live events: In less than two months, the blog site has had more than 1,600 views and 800 visitors.

Jenn Waters, assistant publisher and digital media manager, CustomNEWS, has written more than 15 blog posts for the website. Her hope is to provide meeting organizers and association executives with ideas that may resonate with them either now, or in six months from now. Topics covered have included:
- Virtual conferences: Using digital publishing tools for pre-event marketing; sharing conference content with a wide audience; creating sponsorship opportunities; driving traffic to a virtual exhibit hall; offering value-added opportunities to virtual exhibitors; and creating a print program.
- Hybrid conferences: Creating exclusive publications, either in print and/or digital formats, for your virtual audience.
- Live events: Publishing a digital daily newspaper to offset lower attendance; replacing the onsite program book with a print show daily.

In addition to CustomNEWS' blog posts, the site ( ( also includes links to articles from other websites and industry trade publications related to virtual events, event planning, event technology, social media, content marketing and public relations.
