Google <3 Face2Face

Google knows the value of face-to-face meetings.

Vint Cerf, Google's vice president and chief Internet evangelist, was asked how technology is changing travel and what to cite a positive change on the subject:

The biggest upside is face to face meetings that are often far more effective than teleconferencing, videoconferencing or email. Of course, there is also the thrill of discovering a new city or a new restaurant and chef!!

    I had a discussion with someone the other day about how the meetings industry is going to continue to grow.  Face-to-face conferences that have a powerful "culture" grew during the recession (Think SXSW Interactive and TEDx, etc...).  Humans are experiential beings, and the need for face-to-face cannot be replaced.  Granted, people are expecting more from the meetings they attend... but they are still going to travel.
