How were you able to adapt during COVID-19 when the meeting and events industry got disrupted?
 
It was about 4 weeks before our conference that we realized that we would have to go virtual, luckily our conference app vendor had the capability to host a virtual conference so we used them.
 
As a planner, what was the number one thing you learned over the past year?
 
How to adapt and shift from what is pretty much a second muscle to planning conferences in a completely different way.
 
Is there anything you are changing in your planning process moving forward as a result of the pandemic?
 
I'm changing my thought process around how any new in-person conference post pandemic looks like. I'm allowing space for various options when it comes to the look and feel of a conference.
