Granted, you probably don't have a ton of music superstars on your speed dial. But, the "Together at Home" event is an excellent example of how event organizers are breaking the traditional event mold. If you can't hold your event live, technology allows you to take your event online.

As I've mentioned previously, event organizers are going to figure out how to weather this unprecedented storm. You're going to want to pay close attention to results and how those results were generated.
