Until there’s a vaccine, Mark Yuska, founder and president of Alliance Nationwide Exposition, sees on-site event testing as the path forward for live events. “We listened to our customers and attendees. They want to get back to live events as soon as possible, and they wish to do so in a safe and responsible way. Since the only solution is testing, we set out to provide what our customers asked for.”
