When does the events industry expect to return to the office?
C&IT asked Event Professionals when we expect to go back to office life and how often we'd like to work from home.
With the vast majority of the events industry currently working from home or furloughed because of coronavirus, they wanted to find out when we expect to be able to return to the office.
Just over 31% expect to be able to be back in the office by September/October, according to an online poll C&IT conducted last week.
The second most popular answer was July or August, picked by 29.8% – and a quarter (25.2%) of respondents even said they thought they'd be back in the office by the end of June.
Just under 6% said they didn't expect to be back in the office before 2021 and 5% said they expected to be working from home permanently.
We also asked how you would like to return to the office, assuming your employer can create a safe working environment. Nearly 41% said they would prefer to return to the office some days each week, compared to 22.5% who said they would like to return to the office full-time.
A similar number (21.6%) said they would be happy with just having occasional office meetings and just under 15% said they would rather work from home all the time.
