With the restrictions on traveling and gathering which have been employed in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, event planning and execution face all kinds of uncertainties, and contingency plans are an indispensable part in the planning process. While some events have been forced to postpone or cancel, a number of organisers have moved the events online or partly online. This case study uses a student-organised real event as an example to illustrate both the importance of risk management to success in event planning and execution under pandemic situations and how the risks have been identified and managed. The case also shares the practices for holding a dual-mode hybrid event.
