I miss attending live events. I haven’t gone to a search marketing conference since late 2019.
But, as much as I miss in-person gatherings, I’m not sure I’m ready to return to real-world conferences. After all, our free SMX Advanced event in June was entirely online and received rave reviews from the 8,000+ search marketers that attended.
This year has witnessed the comeback of in-person marketing conferences (as well as hybrid events), and attendance is far from pre-pandemic levels.
Recent COVID variations have resulted in significant increases in cases across the country. In reality, my family has only recently recovered from COVID, and many of my business friends and colleagues have been infected in recent weeks.
So, how do you feel about going back to live events?
Please complete this brief 3-minute survey to let us know how you feel about attending conferences in the remaining months of this year and the first half of 2023. We will publish the findings in the coming weeks.
