The Meaning of Virtual In 2021

Tuesday, June 22 | 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. CDT 

Area of Interest: Technology Solutions
CMP-IS Domain A: Strategic Planning, 1.00 CE


The phrase for 2020 was “pivot to virtual” and in the early months of last year, we did not totally understand what that would mean. Now, with a year of virtual events under our belts, we’re expected to continue to push the envelope without breaking the bank and deliver what is best for our audience. However, with so many people attending and hosting virtual events, how do you manage the fatigue and determine the success?

Join this session to hear from individuals who have worked through these challenges to bring their event to the next level for their attendees!

Hybrid Meetings: Creating a Shared Understanding and Experience

Hybrid meetings can be a challenge to plan for with so many unknowns like:

  • What is your company’s definition of a hybrid meeting?
  • How do you provide an engaging experience for hybrid attendees?
  • How are you measuring ROI?
  • How do you communicate the cost implications of hybrid meetings?

The list goes on and on. In joining this session, you’ll hear how presenters secured their stakeholders' approval to host a hybrid meeting and made those events successful.

Many of us are waiting for the opportunity to travel and get back to in-person meetings. While we wait, we’re discovering all of the new implications that will need to be considered when going back to in-person events. In this session, some potential topics we will cover include educating your attendees on protocols (even if they’ve received the vaccine), how to communicate with those attending your meeting, hotel expectations on staffing levels, and internal post-COVID protocols. Join our panelists as they uncover these topics and more!
