For those that said they still have live meetings scheduled what is your typical attendance and have you adjusted your projections lower for this year?

Typically 30,000. Poll taken of 2019 attendees/exhibitors said 30% drop possible if LIVE only. Considering Virtual and Hybrid options

Amanda Bond-Thorley

our event is end of October in Florida. 900 attendees. We're planning on 50% attendance. Considering offering an in-person event that is a "lite" version of our usual offering (no big party for example) followed by a virtual event the week after the in-person event.
Jennifer Wroniewicz
01:01:23
Did you or are you surveying your members on their comfort level with in-person events or if they have travel bans within their companies?
Erin Weeks
01:01:53
We are!
Erin Weeks
01:02:05
It has been interesting.
Erin Weeks
01:02:33
There's a huge discrepancy between people who would normally attend and people who might come.
Amanda Bond-Thorley
01:02:34
@Jennifer - yes we surveyed a month ago and intending to repeat the srvey next week
Jennifer Wroniewicz
01:03:19
Majority of our members have travel bans in place for the foreseeable future.
MINDY MOORE
01:03:23
Has anyone surveyed about how your people would like to consume digital content? What they would pay for it?
Michael Cerami
01:03:27
The whole situation is still very fluid with pssible daily changes on travel restrictions state wide and especially company wide
William MacDonald
01:05:03
@Amanda, thx.
Dave Lutz
01:05:50

Anyone else getting hate mail? Have heard this from quite a few organizers.
Marty Streeper
01:09:14
no
MINDY MOORE
01:09:15
We're finding it varies a lot by region. Our EU members are seeing much more of a return to normal and have an expectation that fall shows will run
Michael Cerami
01:10:51
No hate mail...simple inquiries about status updates

We're exploring a more "DIY"/self-service route to reduce contact.
