How can technology suppliers best help exhibitors get through this situation?

Since our first live session we've received so much feedback, emails and questions we feel it would be wrong just to store it all as a survey response. 

For that reason we've created this community where you'll be able to bring up new topics, ask questions, discuss directly with each other, and continue the discussion also after the webinar has ended.

On behalf of the cinema community: Thank you for contributing!

I think the most immediately relevant way to help is to be proactive in terms of keeping customers and partners informed of the parameters of your products / services that will be affected by cinemas being closed - GDC have done this in the way of technical bulletins to partners and it looks like many / most other hardware vendors have done the same.

Trade bodies like CTC are also a great resource where cinemas can look up information from suppliers and get impartial advice on how to manage technology during this Pandemic.

Most importantly, what we can all do to help exhibitors is 'being here', as in, keeping our lights on and being here for cinemas and their integration partners through this period - answering questions directly on how to manage technology and how to best prepare for when the cinemas re-open - which they will - and be able to operate technology and wow their customers!
