@yaxu @mako Yes, fully virtual events can be great. I went to a social alumni event on gather.town this weekend. It was nice. You could move around and form smaller group discussions, but I didn't have to pay hundreds of dollars for a flight to attend. There is still a lot of promise to the virtual gathering model to iterate upon.
