Connect 2020: Hosting an Industry Event in a Year Like No Other

Orlando World Center Marriott

This year’s annual Connect 2020 Marketplace was truly like no other. Held at the Orlando World Center Marriott, one of Marriott's premiere convention and resort properties, this event included 1,000 in person attendees as well as 175 virtual attendees. Connect Meetings and the hotel collaborated to produce this event implementing brand new standards and protocols that enabled everyone to Connect with Confidence.

The event also included virtual appointments featuring virtual suppliers and a digital trade show happening simultaneously to the in-person event (tables for one-on-one appointments were set up lengthwise allowing for 10-12 feet of distance).

Overwhelmingly, the attendees were appreciative and impressed with the initiatives taken and of the being back together to collaborate through the event. To see more on the steps that were taken before and during the event, please click on the video above.
