During lockdown, we’ve been picking the brains of park builders, operators and suppliers from the FEC industry. For some, the way we are working had changed dramatically, and for others, it has been a chance to re-focus, evolve and adapt.
Our insight series CoronaPod: Ask the Industry, takes a deeper look into how Covid-19 has changed the way we work, and how we can all plan for the big ‘bounce back’.
Listen to our second podcast in the series ‘A Message from the Market’ (below) where Industry leaders share their thoughts on the current climate.
Rob Christie, Airquee / AirParxs
My clear message – stay positive. Use this time to review your internal processes so that you come out stronger and more prepared.
Sue Wilson, Best American
Stay positive, safe and well. Let’s look forward to the next conference for our industry.
Jake Walker, Big Air Bag
Keep up the communication and keep your team highly energised. Discuss the difficulties, positives, wins and losses.
Scott Benjamin, Fun Spot
This is an unscripted new opportunity. Take the time to review your strategy and plans, and reconnect with your customers. Listen more, talk less.

Necessity is the mother of all inventions. Hang in there, solutions are coming.
