Summer is the season of outdoor concerts, festivals and weddings. Large outdoor gatherings are beginning to happen again after last year’s widespread cancellations. Dwayne Thomas, founder of the Live Events Industry Coalition of Oregon, and Christina Fuller, owner of Fuller Events, join us to discuss how the last year has affected their industry and what the future holds.
