Did Tech Save the Events Industry?

Mar 19, 2021

7:00pm – 8:00pm CT

COVID-19 devastated the events industry in 2020, but within months, the industry, as a whole, came together to find common solutions to a global problem. The multi-billion dollar industry completely transformed its main business model and moved to virtual.
What lessons were learned and can be applied going forward? Matthew will hear from two event organizers, both of whom have organized multiple virtual events in 2020, and discuss tech's central role in the future of events based on their experiences.
