2020 was a year of uncertainties with regard to health, jobs, and finances. The predictions of most industries went down the drain.
But as we know, ‘necessity is the mother of invention,’ the past year saw many sectors making their adjustments and innovations to tide over the challenges thrown by the pandemic. The events industry pivoted to organizing virtual meets and conferences. This trend has been carried forward to 2021 as well.
Although many of us want things to return to the way they were pre-COVID, when face-to-face interactions were a way of life, things will not be the same, at least for a very long time.
With people realizing the convenience of virtual events, they may likely become a permanent fixture for future marketing strategies.
