The coronavirus crisis continues to pose new and continued challenges for individuals and industries. Wherever possible, organizations are opting for risk reduction and attempting to accommodate distanced pandemic life. As we approach the fall, it’s no wonder the food industry is continuing a trend that started in the Spring: the virtual conference. From the digital edition to the annual GS1 Connect conference, to newer events like Attricon put on by Attribytes. Elements of the virtual conference have been vehicles for industry engagement long before the COVID-19 health crisis. Webinars, on-demand videos and virtual meet-and-greets are not altogether new. However, food industry institutions are bundling these elements in new ways to fill the conference void—a void carries on into the latter half of 2020.
