The future is virtual." That is the new familiar everyone is talking about post the Covid19 pandemic. I beg to differ! Zoom, Slack, Google Hangout, and much other software became the way for us to connect virtually. It is convenient, people can share information, no need to travel long distances, and most importantly, we do not get exposed to contagious viruses. These are all great benefits from virtual events, but never enough! Presentations and plenary sessions at live conferences, while important, they are not the most crucial part. It is about the full experience. Escaping from the 8 to 5 routine, getting away from the same desk, avoiding distraction from emails and notifications, interacting with real people and not screens, and connecting with like-minded peers are all priceless. Sometimes a short conversation at the sidelines of a conference can become a life-changing event. This will never be replaced virtually. Thanks to Anthony Ritossa and his great team for the tremendous effort in bringing the Global Family Office Investment Summit live again. I'm honoured to chair another excellent summit following 9-months of conducting virtual events."
Hussien Sayed, CNBC Arabia Anchor & Chief Market Strategist at FXTM, UAE
