Technology’s Major Impact: Helping to Navigate the COVID-19 Pandemic and Beyond

Since CED Magazine’s focus is on technology this month, I’d like to take a moment to speak about the critical role that technology plays in this industry. We all know that technology helps to propel our industry forward, but I believe 2020 showed us just how relevant it is.

In 2020, AED was proud to provide the latest information to our members as news on the COVID-19 outbreak was still developing. AED was able to offer timely emails and webinars on the topic during a period of uncertainty. Through the use of technology in the form of virtual and hybrid attendance, we were able to provide members with the events they have come to expect and look forward to. The reliance that we had on technology this past year helped businesses to stay connected and informed as we navigated a challenge unlike any we have seen. 

Over the last few years, rapid technological advancements have been made that help us deal with the challenges we face in our daily lives. This issue’s showcase puts our technology service providers at the forefront of helping your business overcome issues you may face. You can hear from the experts on how your team can benefit from the many resources that our service providers offer. 

Members who choose to attend Summit in Las Vegas will reap the added benefit of connecting in-person with our technical service providers. It will be the first time this year that industry technology businesses will be together, in-person. 

If your company is seeking technology upgrades, I urge you to attend this can’t-miss event, May 24-26, at The Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas.
