"I don't think people should do hybrid because it's trendy. You need to think about what works for your brief and what works for your audience. It's great to get data, it's great to get an open audience, but if the main point of your event is to get sales leads and customer relationships, can you get that through any kind of virtual offering to your physical event?"
"I feel like we've been in the dark ages. Oh my god, the world's just opened up to us with with the ability to leverage technology around creativity. It's fantastic."
