In the past several weeks, we’ve had to quickly adapt to virtual events. Because of their strong focus on virtual events, planners have innovated the events industry by pioneering new event technologies and strategies. Jil Dasher with HPN Global and Phil Saims with Federal Conference join us today to share how they have innovated their events.

In the conversation, Jil and Phil express the importance of keeping your attendees engaged and included in the conversation. This can be achieved by utilizing tools such as a virtual reality headset, the CrowdCompass app, and more.

Listen in to hear how they believe event planners have become more valuable than ever!
