“We are beyond excited to share today’s news with the world, as our work on a virtualized AWE event has been in process for some time now,” said Ori Inbar, co-founder of AWE. “While all of us would prefer to have a fully-live event as it has always been before COVID, the sad reality is that the pandemic is still amongst us and even those who are long-vaccinated may have children who are still vulnerable. For those individuals and others who for their own reasons may have to remain in their home countries, we are proud to offer awe.live.”
