IN THE EVENT OF or THAT: meaning and examples

Good morning. I hope you had a good weekend! Today we are going to answer a request from Núria. She wrote "Hello there. Having seen the lesson about "just in case" (See Daily Vitamin from 31/01/2006) I'd like to know when to use "in the event of"." Today's expression is: in the event of or in the event that It is used: to say what will happen in a particular situation or what we should do in a particular situation. We use in the event of NOUN or GERUND. We use in the event that SUBJECT VERB COMPLEMENT. Example 1 In the event of rain, the concert will take place in the auditorium. Example 2 In the event that I should arrive late, please start the meeting without me. Example 3 In the event of a drop in share prices, buy as much stock as possible. I hope this answers your question, Núria. If any of our readers have any questions about today's Daily Vitamin, please post them in the Daily Vitamin Plus! forum section on our website.
