I attended a Trace Adkins concert at the county fair and thoroughly enjoyed an evening of entertainment. Maybe I liked the show so much because I purchased the tickets in 2019 (!!) and was finally able to use them. But beyond that, a key factor was that there was no Jumbotron or filming, forcing you to watch it “live” instead of on a screen. I think it caused me to pay better attention and to focus on the stage instead of all the activity going on around it.

We often think that the addition of technology is a good thing — and it often is — but sometimes doing without the gizmos and gadgets actually enhances the experience. Perhaps consider having your next in-person gathering exclusively be a face-to-face experience instead of a high-tech pseudo-Zoom event that still has your participants watching on a screen.
