The Pivot to Virtual Events in 2020

“Faced with the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), many professionals are looking to mitigate the impact it may have on them and those around them in the weeks and months ahead.

As domestic and international travel is increasingly limited and more communities practice social distancing, organizations worldwide are rethinking their events, both internal and external. As the long list of postponed or canceled events continues to grow, event organizers have some tough decisions to make.

Instead of canceling, many companies are opting for virtual events. Adobe Summit, Facebook F8, and Google I/O have all gone this route, canceling the in-person aspect of their conferences and moving the event 100% online.

Whether you’re planning an internal all-hands, customer meetup, or an industry conference, virtual events can help you stay connected with your employees and customers, even if you can’t bring them all to the same place.
