How can Event Hosts, Sponsors, Speakers, and Media meet their goals when the “Big Event” is cancelled?

This virtual roundtable brings together people who have a shared professional interest in this topic of adapting to cancelled conferences, meetings and other in-person events. If you’re worried about your events or even thinking about this topic, we’re sure you’ll find this super interesting.


The format

You'll have a chance to meet other event producers/hosts/planners/professionals in small group video conversations, surface the challenges emerging from this pandemic, and share and discuss ideas (including across groups) for alternative ways of moving towards common objectives in this crisis. We do ask that you be willing to share ideas with colleagues, and ideally to bring a thought on how to adapt outreach and engagement when the live meetings are cancelled.

Frequently Asked Questions

There is no cost to participate, it fits within our mission as a company and is a conversation we know people want/need to have right now. So there are no fees whatsoever.
Here’s a quick way to see some of the engagement we've been able to foster with these virtual conversations. It’s a short (99 seconds) video snippet of a recent live video conversation about a different topic: Transforming Advocacy in a Digital Era, with change leaders from Sierra Club, Indivisible, and LSE http://bit.ly/TransformingAdvocacy-snippet.
Due to the speed we are launching this conversation and the number of organizations reaching out for help amidst this pandemic, our team is unfortunately spread too thin and wouldn’t be able to hop on a call before this conversation needs to happen. We’re happy to setup a time to chat about what we’re up to outside of the Event Professionals Conversation (please contact us here).
To be totally transparent, this is our first time producing such an event, and we are inviting Event Hosts, Sponsors, Speakers, and Media from across the country to contribute. It's all so fluid right now (we only started inviting folks in the last week of March) that we can't say for sure who will be in attendance on any given date, but we are inviting people from across industries- tech, government, consulting firms, etc.
One of our colleagues had a list of relevant event professionals. This is a small/early round, and you happened to be in it. In general we plan to reach out to much bigger groups, given the response we’ve seen so far.
We designed this conversation to be an ongoing series of live group video calls, with each new group contributing their own unique ideas and voices to the greater conversation. We will take the notes and contributions from the many group conversations and synthesize the learnings and findings into a single, powerful document to share with everyone who participated. Where the conversation goes from there, we will look to the community for your input.
You'll meet (and speak with) other event professionals in small group video conversations, surface the challenges emerging from this pandemic, and share and discuss ideas (including across groups) for alternative ways of moving towards common objectives in this crisis. You will be given a series of open-ended questions for your roundtable. There will be an Agenda & Notes available - a shared, editable document where you each add in your notes. Where the conversation will lead will be up to your group.
This conversation is open to the public but we ask you to fully participate and bring a thought or idea to share. You are welcome (and we encourage you) to share the conversation with your networks.
