MRI NETWORK IN-PERSON EVENT
As we have all seen, the pandemic has caused a lot of uncertainty and concern surrounding groups of people gathering. Due to this, the event world has stayed cautious and continued to utilize virtual events. However, virtual events don’t hold the same registration levels, engaged attendees and the same “wow factor” as an in-person event. Additionally, now that we are more aware of how to safely protect ourselves from COVID (with the vaccine, wearing masks, etc.), businesses, event planners and attendees are VERY eager for what’s to come.
BARILLA PASTA GOES VIRTUAL
Hosting a virtual event can be a daunting task for even the most seasoned event producer. Virtual events have, for at least for the foreseeable future, become the new normal. They aren’t going away anytime soon. KM&A partnered with Barilla Pasta, who needed support for their quarterly sales meeting. They posed the challenge: “how can we virtually engage with our sales team but still make it entertaining?” Barilla had held one earlier in the year and faced technical challenges. Essentially, they were looking for assistance with creating a central theme and support to overcome their previous technical challenges.
