Large Show Roundtable Pivots to Virtual

Lippman Connects announces that the Large Show Roundtable (LSR) scheduled for Thursday, August 20, 2020, will be held virtually via Zoom. The announcement by company president Sam Lippman follows the successful debut of the first Exhibit Sales Roundtable (ESR) Virtual.

“Whatever uncertainty we may have had about adapting to virtual have been removed by the overwhelming approval following ESR Virtual. By the time LSR Virtual is held, we will have the first Attendee Acquisition Roundtable Virtual under our belts as well,” said Lippman. Attendee Acquisition Roundtable (AAR) Virtual will be held via Zoom on Thursday, July 30, 2020.

Featuring input from subject-matter experts and off-the-record discussions, LSR Virtual will bring together executives, directors, and managers of trade shows with 125,000-plus net square feet. “There has never been a more important time for organizers to exchange information and insights,” Lippman added.
