As you may have heard, Microsoft has decided to move all of its conferences online until July 2021, including Microsoft Ignite.

Microsoft certainly isn’t the only company making this shift. Other tech conferences that are now exclusively digital include: Adobe Summit, Apple WDDC, Cisco Live, Dell World, Forrester CX, Google Cloud Next, Red Hat Summit, VMworld, and many others (for an extensive list that also includes events that have been totally canceled or rescheduled, click here).

And so, we want to know: What’s your opinion of online conferences?

Please tell us what you like about them, and also what you don’t. You can share your experience as a sponsor, exhibitor, attendee — or all three if they all apply.

And if you have yet to attend an online conference, please tell us about your expectations. Are you intrigued by the idea and looking forward to it? Or do you think it’s going to be a significant downgrade from the in-person experience?

As always, there are no limits to how you can respond. If it’s important to you, then it’s important to us and we want to hear about it!

You Could Win

Just by participating in the May poll and sharing your wisdom, you’ll be automatically entered to win one of two $25 Amazon gift cards. That’s more than enough to buy a Mr. Spock Bluetooth speaker with mic for your home office (“Live Long and Work Remotely”).

Thank you in advance for participating, and we look forward to your interesting responses!
