Adapting and Easing the Shift to Virtual Events with James Huddleston

They serve as a catalyst for helping individuals step outside their comfort zones and present opportunities to explore a new city, interact with old friends, and learn something new. But what happens when traditional marketing events can no longer take place? How do you bring that same experience to your consumers virtually?
