Q:

What is the difference between a “regular event” and a “one-time event”?

A:

A regular event is an event produced by Hit The Floor that is in a regular format and takes place every year (For example, Hit The Floor Gatineau, Hit The Floor Lévis). A one-time event, on the other hand, is a non-recurring event that is held in a format other than the regular one and that is produced by Hit The Floor according to the special requests of the studios and according to the opportunities in the current context (For example, Hit The Floor With Your Family, Virtual Event, etc.).

A:
