It is no secret that bugs can ruin an outdoor event if they are not properly handled. Mosquito Squad, an outdoor pest control company founded in 2005, uses its barrier sprays and misting systems to rid the area of bugs like mosquitoes, flies and gnats. “The Barrier Spray Service is perfect for a one-time event because it will eliminate most of your flying annoyances for the specific day of the event,” says George Softly, part owner and COO of Mosquito Squad of South Jersey. Each Barrier Spray Service is designed specifically for each unique location. The automated Mist-Away Misting Systems are perfect for event spaces that plan to host multiple events. “Our services are people- and pet-friendly and only require a 60-minute drying time immediately after the application for a barrier spray to be safe for entry,” Softly says. Mosquito Squad also offers all-natural options for all their services. When planning an event, a walk-through of the location beforehand to eliminate breeding grounds is the best place to start. “For a complete solution, however,” Softly says, “we recommend you inspect the event space prior to treating if there has been confirmed activity that could affect the event in a negative way.”

Because many of our colleagues are caffeinated enough during these stressful months, why not gift them a gentler, kinder holiday beverage? Tea Forté, a company based in Maynard, MA, offers handcrafted tea blends that are served at some of the finest hotels across the U.S. and Canada. Their Warming Joy 2021 holiday collection features a combination of black, green and herbal teas, including seasonal favorites like raspberry ganache, sweet orange spice, cherry marzipan, harvest apple spice and winter chai.

 

Chances are, you won’t know you’re living through history until it’s too late. It’s already happening. A chain reaction has been set in motion and the ground has begun to slide beneath your feet.

This past year has been a whirlwind to say the least. As a global pandemic sent the world reeling, planners were left grasping for footholds as the event industry was brought to a standstill, and many of the most fundamental elements of live meetings and events were cast in a new light.
