Planning the 6 Foot Laboratory
We went the “Learning by Doing” route, so you don’t have to! The members of our panel all have at least one socially-distanced conference under their belts, and are excited to share secrets to success and opportunities for improvement as our industry redefines future normalcy and creates the roadmap to fruition. Come hear the communities questions answered about what it takes to run a conference in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In this environment, it will be important for meeting planners and production companies to plan for virtual/hybrid events. These events will include all the normal equipment and processes of a traditional event and additionally the equipment and processes for a fully virtual event. For this portion of the discussion, the panel will talk about what needs to be considered for managing this type of event. This would include what will be needed from the production company as well as from the facility where the hybrid portion of the event will take place.
In this session, we will cover what the hotel arrival and guest room experience looks like in the during/post-COVID world.
