"All across the industry, we have seen events moving online, with presenters and participants from all over the world logging on to follow sessions remotely. That so many large and small events have made this transition so quickly and smoothly has been truly impressive. And there’s much we can gain by creating a level playing field for everyone through an online medium.
But are there also things that we risk losing when we move our events online? With the future of international travel still unclear, as we look to longer-term community approaches, what have we learnt so far and what can we do to support strong communities? And how do we ensure sound, consensus-based decision making in our virtual industry events?"
