On the 17. In January 1920, the Prohibition law came into America in force, the country-wide alcohol prohibition to produce, transport, sell and consume. It took almost three years to put this law in force. Then it only lasted about two years, until a large illegal pub scene with the so-called "Speakeasys" – "Speakeasies" – had been formed, in which continue to diligently serve alcohol and was consumed. The access to the secret Bars was only granted if the visitor whispered to the correct code word.
Exactly 100 years later the celebration and the socializing will be banned again, by a complete industry receives a quasi-prohibition. Reason, the Coronavirus and the fear of mass infection is. Even though historical comparisons have limits, of course, always, nevertheless, a remarkable Parallel to determine.The bill without the host
In every major city meet on weekends and now even weekdays in the evening and at night young people huddled together in the appointed places with brought drinks, or stand by the hundreds, close to kiosks. As a family-get-togethers declared barbecues, invited by WhatsApp in the snow ball system, and partly on-the-spot admission is charged, are not uncommon. Here is made in the literal sense of the bill without the host. The shadow economy is growing, while local restaurateurs and event organizers to come out.

What can we learn from this? A strict ban, whether 100 years ago or today – is not only that people do the Forbidden secretly. The big difference between then and now is speed, because in our digital world, only the home office, and the Zoom is not a conference, but also the rule - and law-breaking is faster to organize than the beginning of the 20th century.

The prohibition of Events and Parties should serve the protection of human lives. This goal can be achieved in this way? I don't think so. After all, who thinks, that after months of Isolation, the need for communication, common joy of life and carefree celebrations, particularly among young people even longer suppress can, is sadly mistaken. When people celebrate secretly Parties and Events to organize, there are no possibilities of any infections to keep track of, because there is no logically complete the registration of the persons participating.

We do not differ in this respect from an airline, but have to accept, since a few weeks, that the people crowded together in the flyer may sit, while the same is prohibited in concerts, in theatre and on events.

We event organizer are by nature creative and flexible. Changes do not scare us. On the contrary, we regard it as a challenge that we gladly take on. So the Events of the future will be more influenced by conversations. Communication is more important. The exchange of ideas is important.
For future Events, that is, in my opinion, will be the music down and the conversation intense, and more sustainable. If someone leaves a Party or an Event, is it then "It's a pleasure to have made your acquaintance", but "I'm glad we met." The difference lies in the quality of the encounter. Less Small Talk, more substance. We even returned to the locker in Schleswig-Holstein with a Dinner in a rustic setting for the nearly 50 people in the market. Just like many colleagues, we are experimenting with new formats and collect experiences. This motivates us and inspires us.
The event industry and related service providers and companies are in all respects ready to talk and reluctant to cooperate, but do not want to just stand by and watch, how your business is bleeding to death, while the Party - and event culture thrives in the shadow economy slowly.

And even for those of us who will hit it particularly hard, is the certainty of better than the grueling downtime.
An entrepreneur to do nothing and Wait to condemn the worst thing you can do to him is. The event industry has always need to meet strict requirements and is trained. We are able to organize events under Corona conditions are perfect. Our industry thrives on planning. Therefore, we wish for nothing more than a planning horizon. You think Germany's future
