It has never been more appropriate to be able to say with a smile that “ hindsight is 2020 .” Most of us are glad to see 2020 in the rear view mirror .
It is a fresh start with new opportunities ahead in 2021 . The Boeing Max is flying again and orders for the aircraft are beginning to surface . There is hope that new vaccines will stem the tide of the COVID-19 virus and we can think of things like travel and being with other people again .
I for one will now look forward to having dinner with clients , or even a coffee meeting again , with a greater appreciation .
While we can see some light at the end of the tunnel , 2020 will have left a mark . We will be doing more in the virtual world even when we can meet again . The new world of virtual conferences is certainly different but when looked at with an optimistic lens , there are numerous advantages .
1 . Virtual conferencing opens a door to a much greater audience . Many who would not travel or interact in person can easily participate online .
2 . Actual costs are less both for the conference provider and the attendee . A lower cost of doing business is a good thing !
3 . Virtual conferences can offer a whole new level of creativity in regard to presentation — video , multiple event locations with live feed and more .
We are very excited to be the media sponsor again for the PNAA Aerospace Conference ADVANCE 2021 . This “ realistic ” virtual platform sets a whole new standard for an online event , with all the tools we would use in person and then some !
Please review the conference guide in this issue . There is time for you to attend this event without having to make travel arrangements .
