Pivoting to Virtual Events, Conferences and Festivals - How to Replicate the Live Experience Online

he tourism industry has to reimagine live events during a pandemic. The biggest obstacle of COVID-19 for many of us in the meetings and convention business has been the restriction on gatherings of groups of people, which has caused plenty of postponement of events both small and large. This, however, has encouraged creativity through adaptation and we are seeing numerous viable options for hosting live events. Conner Galway of Junction Consulting will provide insight on what some options are available to you as an event host, the pros and cons of switching to an online format, and how to make sure your event runs smoothly. Our team will be looking at both Business to Consumer events like Zoom webinars, interactive workshops and Business to Business events like AGMs, conferences and industry roundtables.
