With the pandemic spurring in-person events to be canceled — from conferences and trade shows to speaking engagements and product launches — companies have begun to reinvent the event experience using technology and new strategies. Though there are barriers to work through, virtual events present opportunities that in-person events have yet to afford — including rich data insights, increased personalization, and the ability to engage a broader audience as location and travel are less of a factor. 

In Nerdery’s June 25 virtual session of Nerd Therapy, our panel of experts weighed in on best practices and technologies to transform in-person events to all-virtual or hybrid experiences. They ideated on ways to recreate opportunities for networking in a virtual environment, how to engage partners and sponsors, how to make your content shine, and strategies to ensure events feel meaningful for attendees.
