TechCrunch talks virtual events and event technology
As you may have heard, we’re taking our entire events lineup fully virtual in 2020. This is of course in response to COVID-19. We’re working hard to make sure that, despite limitations, this year’s events will be some of the best we’ve ever produced. To make that happen, we’re partnering with virtual event masterminds like Bizzabo and Grip to bring our vision to life.
Now, we’re sure you have many questions on how it will all work. To answer your questions, we’ll be hosting an Ask-Me-Anything series where we cover everything from what the attendee experience will look like, sponsorship opportunities, the technology stack that will be powering it all and more.
In this series, we’ll interview the founders that built our event platforms as well as a few event experts who have had virtual event experience. We’ll ask them to share their POV on virtual events as well as how they will work for TechCrunch in the coming months.
