Why did IABC make the decision to go virtual now for an event happening in June?
Making the decision to move to a virtual event now affords us the opportunity fully shift our focus to the virtual environment and the engaging, insightful experience we’re crafting for you. As you’ll recall, we made a quick shift last year from an in-person to virtual conference. The IEB’s decision about next year’s conference enables the PAC and headquarters staff to use their industry and event experience to plan for an even more innovative event in 2021.
