“The pandemic year had challenges but equally exciting opportunities that we embraced to propel our clients and industry forward. As virtual events surged, we partnered with 25 virtual platforms to create over 250 virtual experiences featuring broader reach and deeper engagement than previous live experiences. As we again evolve, the new normal dictates creating comprehensive engagement strategies for our clients that intertwine in-person, hybrid, and virtual events paired with digital and gifting experiences.” —Joan Wells, President, Experience Division
