In this episode of The Podcast Reporter, we discuss the attempt at having an international in-person podcast conference in the year 2021. This came on November 26, 2020, in an email announcement from the podcastmovement.com team. They are trying to gain momentum for people to sign up and pay for a ticket to the conference.
However, they do temper the situation by stating that one of the 4 “tracks” now include one track for a VIRTUAL CONFERENCE. And, if the scan-demic continues to next year, they will refund your money in total if the in-person conference in Nashville is canceled.
Yes, as this post was published on November 27, 2020 (i.e., “Black Friday”) to make the purchase of the $175 USD tickets (and the higher priced ones, as well) available. And please note that this price is both for the in-person lowest priced ticket, as well as the virtual conference ticket — it is the choice of the purchaser to get either one. As the email states: “This year, you’ll have the option to attend in-person, or virtually. And best of all, you can register your in-person ticket now, and convert it to virtual attendance anytime leading up to the event in August. And if the event cannot happen at all, everyone will be offered a full refund.”
As a podcaster, you can register at this “special rate” at the following URL: https://podcastmovement.regfox.com/pm21
Remember that this event is now being scheduled for August 3rd to August 6th of 2021 — unless it is canceled.
For this podcaster, I admit that I am a bit behind. I did sign up for the event virtual ticket for the late 2020 Podcast Movement conference. However, I was not available during the entire time to participate — as I was totally involved in a full-time project for at least 3 weeks during the period of the conference. I am still having to go back and get my virtual link for replays, and then I can choose which sessions that I would like to “attend” over the internet.
Once that is done, then I will see if there will be any perceived VALUE on my part to sign-up for the 2021 scheduled conference or not.
I hope that you, yourself, will decide if the conference will be worth it — either in person or virtually. This can be done with a simple cost-benefit analysis of your show and your business. The podcastmovement.com site usually is pretty responsible for giving out information and schedules of the speakers, panels, keynotes and other activities of the conference. I would recommend that you sign up to be on their distribution list and then make your decision to purchase a ticket for the “event” after you have properly done your ROI analysis or your cost-benefit analysis for any perceived value for yourself and your show and your business (if you are into monetization).
Thank you for your attention.
