This week we chat with Christopher Schmitt and Ari Stiles, the duo who has run dozens of web-based conferences. They’ve been in the event industry for over a decade, from advising and working with South by Southwest to starting their own conferences to working with Knowbility and Smashing Mag today. We dive deep into how they created a successful virtual conference series and the simple changes you can do to make your event more accessible and diversity-friendly.
