Partnering with speakers for successful events: Thursday’s daily brief

We are social beings. Now that we’ve been home for so long, it’s even clearer. Nothing can truly replace the social aspect of personal events: camaraderie, business relationship development, networking, and the ability to communicate with individual speakers and sponsors in a learning environment. In addition to delays in the airline, many people like to return in person for events, as long as it is safe. We were also told that they prefer a virtual team.

However, there will still be room for virtual and hybrid resources, and we still need to find ways to offer visitors more interactivity and networking, as well as question-and-answer conversations. We have had great success with community meetings in our programs where an industry expert spoke to the participants. And 1: 1 network are still available in virtual applications. This of course sounds like digital speed data, but there is plenty of time to exchange ideas and contact details.
