Hawai`i Events Coalition Political Action Chair Rick Schneider spoke earlier this week with Honolulu Star Advertiser regarding the “not-necessarily” immediacy of Tier 4 restriction easing.
“However, it’s unlikely that outdoor and indoor events, especially concerts featuring popular mainland acts, will be able to resume as quickly as nightclubs, said Rick Schneider, CEO of Events International Inc. and chairman of the political action committee of the Hawaii Events Coalition.”
Schneider also said, “We’re not like a restaurant or a retail store where you can open your doors, work with less people to serve less people and have customers the next day.
“So if tomorrow they decided they’re going to open up everything, as an industry we’re not going to recover for another six months at the earliest … and there are a lot of companies that are just hanging on by a thread.”
