Will Afros & Audio be hybrid again next year?

No. Since we ended our exclusive virtual experience during the pandemic our attendance for virtual only has declined more than 90%. Live streaming and using the Whova Event App takes 30% of our annual budget with no return on investment. With that said, until the demand grows for virtual we will discontinue the option. We will, however, ensure that anyone who is unable to attend the conference in person has the ability to access the in-person experience through replays post-conference. Details to come.
