Association Event Planning is Hard in 2020
Can you relate to Christina?
At the start of the year, Christina was busy planning for her association’s events. Now everything has changed. Today she is even busier replying to attendees, sponsors, or venues while the conferences remain in limbo. Meanwhile, her association is growing concerned about offsetting the loss of event revenue.
Christina is facing two options cancel, go virtual, or have a hybrid event, but virtual has a lot of unknowns and seems like a lot of work.
How will Christina impress members, organize speakers, and keep sponsors relevant during a virtual conference?
