And we were looking to pull off a large event with economic impact in short order,” “And then the virus began to spread communitywide, not only in Jacksonville, but throughout the state and, frankly, through other parts of our country, as well. And that’s unpredictable. So in normal times, I’m confident that we would have been able to pull this off, although I don’t that know in normal times if we’d been able to potentially pull an event from another city in short order” External link
