Conferences Shorter and Smarter

Conferences Shorter and Smarter

Some of the unexpected benefits of online conferences will ensure they continue in some form, to everyone’s advantage: When organizers don’t have to pay for a physical space, they may be able to lower or even eliminate ticket fees. And events that don’t require travel can attract a much deeper pool of speakers as well as a broader audience. Of course, there’s a certain kind of engagement born from crowding into a hotel conference center with hundreds of people. So to facilitate that kind of engagement, some virtual conferences set up a Discord server or Slack installation before an event begins. The conversation often continues alongside actual panel discussions. That format enables anyone—not just panelists—to answer questions that arise in a chat, and it encourages participation among introverts who are disinclined to walk up to a microphone in a room full of people.
