As with everything our audience has come to expect of Shoptalk, we want our Virtual Conference to be useful and insightful, especially with more than 10,000 individuals registered to attend. We’ve been quickly learning how to produce engaging and informative content delivered over video, and we believe we’re not yet at the point of having a product that meets the needs of the industry at this critically important time.
As a result, we’ve decided to postpone the Shoptalk Virtual Conference, which was scheduled to take place later today, giving us the time to continue to explore formats we think work best for a video-first medium. We’ll be back in touch next week with the rescheduled date and additional details.
At a time when in-person events have been restricted and canceled, you would think that a virtual event would take place as scheduled. However, the reality is that if you really want to get it right, translating an in-person event to a virtual one presents many unique challenges. We’re working to deliver the best possible first version of this important new initiative, and we appreciate your patience and understanding.
We apologize for any inconvenience and, if you have any questions, please feel free to email us at email@example.com.
