Based on our experience hosting hybrid conferences during the COVID pandemic, we learned many companies and government agencies require employees to participate in a conference remotely if the conference is available virtually. From surveys and the collective experience of the planning committee, we concluded the IEC mission is accomplished much more effectively face-to-face. The committee has thus decided the conference will be exclusively an in-person experience going forward. The 2023 conference will not be a hybrid format. Having noted that, TV‑style commercials during the conference will be retained for the benefit of sponsors and exhibitors — for better brand exposure and more opportunity to connect with prospective customers.
