Virtual Event Engagement: A Q&A with Corey McCarthy of Socio

This is a great question. To be honest with you, I had a moment in early February when I freaked out and wasn’t quite sure.

I started with Socio in January, and on February 10, I made a trip from San Francisco to Indianapolis to see my team. The airports were already slowing down, and travelers were starting to give each other the side-eye for sneezing or coughing. I’ve been in the media and event space since 2002 and know how finicky attendees are. It’s hard to get them to commit and travel to an event — even in the best of times.
