At our last meeting, Sea to Sky’s team had an interesting discussion about balancing virtual and in-person meetings. In our emerging reality of hybrid meetings, how do we balance the experience and expectations of attendees physically located in a meeting room with remote attendees?
As COVID-19 continues to disrupt the meeting and association world, Sea to Sky has been proactively working with each of our clients to manage the changes necessary to ensure a successful transition for their conferences, events and meetings, and the day-to-day management of their associations.
Our team has come together to support our clients, even though we are now working apart, virtually, from our homes.
There is no denying the conference and events industry as a whole generates a lot of pollution. Consider travel, specifically air travel, which contributes greatly to the amount of CO2 levels in the atmosphere. As we are all becoming acutely aware of the effects of climate change on our world, many of us are making conscious decisions about how best to get to and from. We may choose to ride our bikes to work, take public transit, or reconsider attending our association’s annual conference because it requires a plane ticket.
Living in Vancouver, it is easy to brag about our weather, mountains, oceans, and sushi. But is it wrong to say that as fall approaches, and we see reports of snow falling in Calgary, we want to call up Calgarians just to brag about eating sushi on Kits beach? There is an art to bragging. It is not subtle and it has to be short and sweet. It needs to be true. This is Sea to Sky’s 2018 Brag Book.
