Help with Student Survey on COVID & Live Events
Meredith’s Hospitality and Tourism students are studying the impact of Covid-19 on the special events industry and has designed a short “Returning to Live Events” survey that will help them better understand attendee’s concerns around COVID-19 and how the hospitality and tourism industry can raise their willingness to attend live events by engaging in certain mitigation/ safety precautions.

Take the Survey

We would greatly appreciate it if you could take a few minutes to complete this survey and help to augment our understanding in this area.  All responses are anonymous and will not be attributed to you directly but only as part of the consolidated findings related to the larger group of respondents. Thank you in advance for supporting our students and their learning.
