AEG Remodels Traditional On-site Conference To Fit Virtual Platform In Response To COVID-19 Pandemic For Association, ASATT
OAK CREEK, WI, September 16, 2020 – Association Executives Group (AEG) transitioned previously planned on-site conference for The American Society of Anesthesia Technologists and Technicians (ASATT), to a virtual one. With there seeming to be no near end in sight with the Covid-19 pandemic, and with the limitations on social gatherings, AEG made the decision to transition ASATT’s 2020 conference to a virtual platform just weeks before the scheduled event.
“There are numerous steps in switching over an event like this,” mentions ASATT executive director. “Making the decision to move the event to a virtual setting was a difficult one, but we felt confident it was the right decision, given government limitations on large group gatherings. Successful renegotiations on standing contracts was critical to maintaining positive net income this year.”
ASATT’s virtual conference ran September 11-13, 2020 via Zoom Webinar and produced recording breaking attendance numbers doubling what they typically see at an on-site event. Over the three day event, over 21 continuing educational credits were offered allowing the Technologists and Technicians more than enough opportunities to gain the credits needed for their profession. The event also offered a virtual exhibit hall that provided the attendees networking options via video chat or one-on-one appointments with vendors of interest.
One of the conference attendee’s mentioned the following in their post conference survey, “I think ASATT did a fantastic job with the conference. It felt completely natural and seamless. I was very impressed with everything.”
