In 2020, the pandemic forced The Experts Conference (TEC) to switch from an in-person to a virtual event. This article dives into the real practical challenges I faced turning a highly engaging in-person event into a successful virtual one using the Teams platform. I’ll explain why we chose and how we used Microsoft Teams, the personnel required to pull this off, including the tenant administrator’s critical role, an overview of the technical environment, and several of the significant technical/delivery gotchas we had to live with or workaround.
