As we move toward the finish line of 2020 (whew!), we bring to you the November/December issue of Venue Professional magazine, one with articles touching on all the major stories of 2020, as well as a special pictorial look at the year that may never be rivaled in any form or fashion.
Changes have been aplenty, including our magazine name from Facility Manager to Venue Professional. We hope and trust that through the year we have brought you stories to help you professionally as well as personally as we all continue working through a myriad of issues that impact us all.
We are beyond thrilled to profile go-getter Eboni Wilson on the cover of the upcoming issue. Despite my best intentions to tell Eboni I would come to Las Vegas to interview her, she insisted on coming to IAVM World Headquarters, where a record was set (in a most positive way) for the longest interview I have conducted. It did not feel that way as I hung on to Eboni's every word in a far-reaching story I trust you will enjoy.
Be sure to check out other features including the use of drones as disinfectants at stadiums, the boom of esports, the ongoing battle for COVID-19 funding, and much more.
Our popular sector columns also await you as well as some good old-fashioned levity (can't we all use some of that at this time?) brought forth through The Lighter Side, In the Quirks, and For the Love Of ... columns.
So, raise your glass to a toast on December 31, give thanks for the breath you breathe, and let's all try to breathe a sigh of relief for 2021. We are here alongside you for the ride, so as always please stay in touch and send any story ideas or your story contributions to consider to firstname.lastname@example.org
