IAM 2020 Will Be Fully Virtual

This week we received the news that this year’s IAM conference themed ‘A clearer vision’ will be fully virtual. With the coronavirus spreading like wildfire all across the United States, the IAM made the responsible decision to go virtual as they could not guarantee the safety of their visitors. James White, president of the IAM, goes into more detail in this video. We are looking forward to the event and in the meanwhile, hope that everyone stays safe!

The Impact Of The Coronavirus
By now we know that the coronavirus has impacted the moving industry massively and that a lot of us are still making a lot of effort to keep our heads above water. A Santa Clarita based news company, The Signal, wrote an interesting article about all the changes and measures the moving industry takes in order to survive. Think about financial and strategic changes as well as physical safety measures for their surveyors and packers. All in all, this article is a must-read.
