  • 34. But What of the Future?
    • Possible that cuts and changing priorities could see the sustainability of IWMW questioned
    • Should we:
      • Stop doing it?
      • Reduce length of event?
      • Run it as a virtual or hybrid event?
      • Allow commercial providers to provide alternatives?
      • Look for new business models (e.g. greater sponsorship – the ‘Netsoft lecture’)?
      • Please tell us what you think during the event
