Prior to COVID, it wasn’t uncommon for us to record live podcasts at physical conferences. Remember that? Remember when those were a thing?

Since the pandemic, many events have moved to virtual, which is why we wanted to speak to Lalit Mangal, co-founder and CEO of Airmeet – one of the main companies looking to power the future of virtual events. Today we’re discussing how COVID democratized access to events, the pros and cons of all of the virtual programming we’re seeing crop up these days, and what hybrid events are going to look like as some of us are trying to return to “normal.”
