What does the future of work look like for remote workers? As we begin to shift back to pre-pandemic ways, many are questioning what upcoming workdays will look like. Perhaps back to the office, continuing to work from home or a hybrid. To predict the future of work, we must understand the remote work trends shown over the past year.
A survey conducted by FlexJobs states, “Not only do employees want remote work post-pandemic, 58% say they would absolutely look for a new job if they weren’t allowed to continue working remotely in their current position. Plus, 65% want to work remotely full-time post-pandemic, and another 33% prefer a hybrid work arrangement.” (Forbes, 2021).
Remote work has proven to increase employee productivity, lower operating costs and reduce sick day use. Along with the benefits of flexible working times and ensuring the safety of employees, many companies will likely continue to keep their employees at home if work responsibilities permit.

At the beginning of the pandemic, tradeshows and conventions were put to a halt. Many organizations shifted to virtual tradeshows, but attendee engagement lacked compared to in-person events. Virtual events have filled the void for in-person conferences, but as COVID-19 restrictions begin to lift, it’s time to start thinking about the future of tradeshows, post-pandemic.
According to a survey conducted by Wharton Magazine, “73.5 percent of respondents would rather attend an in-person tradeshow than a virtual event.” (2021). In-person trade show participation drives continued sales to existing consumers, sales to new buyers who are dissatisfied with their current providers and buyers attracted to a new product or service offerings. As restrictions begin to lift in certain areas, it is probable that in-person tradeshows will commence before the end of 2021.
Although people would rather attend an in-person tradeshow or convention, there is still much success for using virtual events for lead generation purposes. Businesses are proving success by using virtual events for business development. There are other benefits to virtual events including savings on resources, more attendees, big data opportunities and room for increased exposure. It is very likely that virtual tradeshows will continue to take place, post-pandemic.
