    For those who have returned to in-person events, what are your seeing in terms of attendance now vs. pre-COVID numbers?

    We have an event planned for November. We opened registration a bit late.
    I would have estimated total registrations to be 600-800, leaning on 800 in normal times. Remember them?
    Currently we are just over 400 including staff and sponsors. We should be higher at this point.
    I don't think we will see 800. At this point lucky to see 500.
    But in a way we are OK with that since it will allow for our dinners to be spread out.
    Then again, our event is in South Carolina. Currently #1 in cases/per capita. :(​

    Thanks for the info!  This is in line with what I've seen with other conferences- about half the attendance of the pre-COVID event attendance.
