AuSAE LIVE – A behind the scenes expose of bringing a virtual event to reality
In 2020, like many other associations, AuSAE was faced with a choice to either cancel their annual conference completely or deliver a replacement version virtually.
The decision to create AuSAE LIVE was not taken lightly and with little experience in virtual events, bar Zoom and the occasional Teams meetings, it was a whole new world for the AuSAE team, partners and many attendees.
With virtual and hybrid events set to stay on the agenda for a while longer the learnings for all of us in the brave new world continue and technologies continue to evolve.
AuSAE invites you to join a candid discussion with the event production team who delivered AuSAE’s very first virtual event where they will share the good, the bad, and what they might do differently next time.
