The Austin Convention and Visitors Bureau worked with help from the Professional Convention Management Association Education Foundation to raise $25,000 for the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians.

The funds were raised during Party with a Purpose, a charitable event held during the 2017 Convening Leaders Conference. It will help to provide access to health care for Austin’s low income and uninsured musicians.

This year, Austin CVB partnered with Austin City Limits Live at The Moody Theater and hosted the largest PWAP event in history.

Daily life has been significantly altered by COVID-19, no matter the industry. Many are working from home, while children stay inside for online schooling. Meetings and events have been hit especially hard, since the essence of the industry is face-to-face interactions. While we continue to self-isolate, plenty of organizations have been offering webinars with insights on how to handle the pandemic—watching webinars is a great way to use that extra time you might have used for your commute to learn something useful.

 

As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to put immense pressure on the U.S. health care system and the people who keep it running, the American Hotel and Lodging Association is working to connect hotels with health workers who are struggling to find housing.

 

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.
