Virtual Brunch with Actual Nerds – Episode 7

July 7, 2020

Planner Panel

The Nerds will be hosting a panel of planners pivoting and picking the perfect platforms precisely parlayed with painless production processes. Or perhaps peer to peer programs persist provided precautions are present. What does that mean other than the fact that we know how to use a thesaurus? The entire industry is being asked to explore options for virtual/hybrid meetings as well as a safe return to in-person meetings. We are rounding up a panel of meeting planners who are doing it, and doing it well. What are the best virtual platforms? How do you enhance participant engagement? When will we return to face to face meetings and what safety measures are being done onsite? We will explore the peaks and pitfalls that can only be learned from experience.
