It will also feature networking and speed dating activities, including mornings with industry leaders; Lunchtime Buying, focused on new insights for today’s buying strategies; and Coffee Hour Fresh Content, which will offer a spread of scripted and unscripted formats.
“To date, there is still much uncertainty on travel restrictions globally, thus impacting our partners who come from all over the world to attend ATF. After much consideration, and in the best interests of the industry, we have decided to take ATF online in order to facilitate business and networking for our industry,” conference organizers said in a statement.
