I love everything about this “technically comfortable” space. The audience and virtual attendees get to experience the event in a more relaxed, yet formal setting. This is how I envision post-COVID Hybrid Events going forward. Minus the masked staff, of course.
“[Marriott Hotels] used an in-person format that it thinks can be a model for other hybrid meetings. The event showcased Marriott’s revised approaches to meeting-room and prefunction-area setups that maintain social distancing, products and staff behaviors that maintain cleanliness of surfaces throughout the spaces, and virtual-event technologies that bring in remote participants.”
