The company will offer events scheduled in the first half of 2021 as live virtual experiences — with a plan to transition to integrated experiences, combining in-person and digital components, in the second half. The transition will be contingent on local social distancing mandates and will prioritize the health and safety of the attendees.
Despite the pandemic, in 2020, Forrester successfully delivered its portfolio of events targeting sales, marketing, product, customer experience, and technology leaders as paid, live virtual experiences. Forrester’s pivot to virtual events played a central role in guiding clients through the pandemic.
“We are proud to have created memorable experiences for our attendees — even in a virtual environment in 2020,” said Lisa Riley, vice president of global events at Forrester. “We are continually innovating and evaluating new ways to help our attendees derive value from our events, regardless of whether they attend in person or virtually in 2021. Our events will equip leaders with new ideas, strategies, data, and frameworks to help them and their firms succeed in 2021.”
