Episode Summary

In this episode, we talk with Ryan Costello, Chief Strategy Officer of MemberSuite and all-around event guru.  We chat about the changes that have occurred over the past year (the year of "unprecedented" everything), how much we are looking forward to attending our first in-person conference, and about what we have learned from a year of virtual-only events.  

Ryan will fill us in on what he has learned building The Echo, a virtual engagement platform designed to facilitate real-life human connections.  While The Echo allows users to build very cool virtual conference centers and meeting locations for their attendees - we also discuss moving back to in-person events - how to keep them safe and accommodate virtual attendees at the same time.

Join us to hear Ryan's take on what the future holds for event technology, how we will be creating great experiences for our attendees in the future, and how we will manage hybrid events where some attendees join virtually. 

Lots to think about - Join us to learn more!
