In this episode of My TechDecisions Podcast, Associate Editor Zachary Comeau talks to Eric Krapf, general manager and program chair for Enterprise Connect, the business-to-business enterprise technology and collaboration conference and exhibit that was originally scheduled for the end off March in Orlando.
Like most trade shows and conferences this spring, it was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic and government restrictions that limit large public gatherings. However, Krapf and the event staff were quick to pivot and hold a virtual event in which tech executives from industry leaders like Slack, Avaya, Cisco and others gave keynotes and held sessions via webinar.
Across three days, Enterprise Connect hosted virtual speaking events in which tech experts discussed market reports, cloud solutions, artificial intelligence, remote work and collaboration technology.
Krapf says that with remote work and conferencing experts already in the loop, setting up the virtual event was nearly seamless. This model could pave the way for future tech events and change how content is delivered to the audience.
