Face-to-face conferences will be back says survey
A recent survey by Belsey Bridge Conference Centre near the Norfolk/Suffolk border has revealed that 91% of their customers say they do not believe that video conferencing will replace face-to-face contact.
Their survey revealed that 98% of event organisers still plan to hold face-to-face conferences in the future, giving confidence to one of the largest conference centres in the region as they look to welcome guests back in 2021.
Christian Conference Trust run Belsey Bridge as well as two other centres. They say they are confident that churches, charities, businesses and educational groups will return in the spring when they plan to re-open their centres.
Chief Executive, John Heasman, said: “There has never been a more important time to reconnect in person. Video conferencing helped us all through 2020 but it will never replace the closeness of community felt by going away for a weekend conference together. As one of our guests told us recently, ‘there is no substitute for togetherness’."
Believing that the future of residential retreats is vital, Christian Conference Trust are launching their largest ever advertising campaign.
The new advertisement highlights the isolation felt by so many at this time and the benefits of reconnecting away from the everyday environment.
