Hi Everyone! Greetings from the American Society for Clinical Pathology in Chicago!
We are wondering how people are changing their format, number of sessions and fees for virtual compared with their live
My biggest struggle right now is getting experts within our health system to deliver education, when they are overwhelmed with preparing for a COVID-19 surge.
We might have do a live conference with a virtual component at the end of the year. How do we accomodate an international event with multiple time zones. How many sessions will participants really sit at a computer for? It is a three day conference for example?
We are hoping to learn some best practices to look for from our grantees in terms of contingency plans.
Hi from South Florida. Working on our annual conference of ~500, which we've just converted to virtual (early September). Looking for tips, best practices, etc. and specifically including small group interactive sections in addition to larger, entire audience lectures. Thx!
Do we capture and offer the enduring component for those that do the live conference? If so should we offer CME? Will that allow us to charge a larger registraiton fee?
We are not allowed to use Zoom and the current approved conference software that we have is not conducive to virtual learning.
Hi everyone - this is being recorded and will be available along with a PDF of the slides and an additional handout on the Alliance website later this week.
Hello from Orlando FL
When you move online, you are losing one of the biggest reasons people attend big meetings (their friends and colleagues). Any ideas about how to compensate for that?
Hi, Erin. I take a lot of MOOC courses; they have discussion forums. That might be one thing to conside.
We're allowing exhibit reps to have a 60 second video that plays in a breakout room during a designated "exhibit" break.
I like the “exhibit break” idea!!
Do you charge exhibitors? If so, how much?
This was great. Thank you this was very informative.
Indeed; this is very useful. I look forward to sharing with my grant review committees.
Thanks! This was very informative!
Thank you so much for this presentation.
Thank you so much! I have a lot of great ideas ot take back to my own program :)
