FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: August 12, 2020 Sausalito, California: In a response to a sudden shift to virtual and hybrid meetings during the coronavirus pandemic, Smart Meetings has expanded coverage of best practices in digital and streaming content.

In addition to interviewing experts and sharing case studies on and in the monthly Smart Meetings magazine and in webinars, Smart Meetings is pioneering event technology solutions by producing digital business events and planning for multi-channel gatherings.

“Smart Meetings prides itself on always being at the forefront of meeting our community’s needs. We quickly saw the importance of sharing even more resources to help planners be successful in today’s environment. Brandt brings an understanding and voice that is needed right now in the industry,” said Marin Bright, CEO and co-founder of Smart Meetings.

Hybrid Meeting Genius, a new regular feature, will allow meeting professionals to navigate event tech like a pro.
