Session #18 - (Noon - 1:30 p.m.) - Best Practices for Producing Virtual & Hybrid Presentations & Events in an Era of COVID

Business isn't and never will be the same again because of COVID. In the past 20 months, we have learned how to effectively work from home and use technology to conduct meetings and even conferences and trade shows (like this one).  Several Midwest companies have been at the forefront of using technology to keep workers, customers and clients connected. Milwaukee-based Plum Media quickly pivoted from being a video production house to live event production with a focus on audience engagement. The company will share tips and tricks it learned and perfected during the pandemic shutdown to help communicators create top-notch events that are fully on-site, hybrid or virtual -- and won't break the budget.
