With the absence of in-person conferences we miss out on the personal nature of attending an event. Shaking hands, chatting, meeting new people, awkwardly trying to remember someone’s name or how you know them. Yet we continue to “attend” the virtual conferences because, presumably, there is still value to be had. Nearly all the “value” is now in the information being shared, which is generally pre-recorded presentations and pdf PowerPoint files. So, to pass along the most value to you, the readers, I will share a series of photos from the talks of the Phosphors & Quantum Dots Industry Forum 2021 along with my insights. Enjoy the photo blog!
