I’ve been aware that several conventions, seminars and events have been cancelled due to the virus.
Having recently ‘attended’ some work related events, and as we are all now getting more used to videoconferencing technology, might we consider a purely online event?
I know it would still incur some costs (no one would want to log in every 40 minutes!) but compared to normal venue costs, need not be prohibitive, particularly if we find a publisher or similar wishing to provide sponsorship in return for some publicity.
What would be people’s thoughts? Would you attend one? How would you see it working? Would you be prepared to pay a small fee to help offset the costs if you got some premium content or access?
