How Sign Pros Are Conducting Meetings in 2023

Do you or don't you: Meeting virtually, how much per week and more.





Do you meet virtually (e.g. by Zoom) now as much as in 2020-21?

Yes: 33%

  • No one wants to meet in person. [However], we do not use Zoom as it is 1/3 owned and operating in China. — Jan McCarthy, Inkspot Design Inc., Chicago
  • We use it now more than ever. — Greg Gimbert, Southeastern Lighting Solutions, Daytona Beach, FL
  • We still have our weekly sales meeting and ops meeting virtually with our monthly management meeting typically virtual and in person from time to time. Virtual meetings save time and some of our staff has remained either remote or hybrid. — Rochelle Letourneau, Security Signs, Portland, OR
  • Everyone learned the benefits of virtual meetings in 2020-21 and that has continued on. Most of our client meetings and buyouts are virtual now. The only on-site meetings are for pre-mobilization and punch walks. — Angela Goffstown, Boyd Sign Systems, Englewood, CO

No: 67%

  • I prefer meeting in person. — Raychel O’Donoghue, Lexington Signs & Graphics, Burlington, MA
  • The nature of our job requires site visits. — Grace Francisco, San Diego State University, San Diego
  • Loaded question because every meeting was virtual then. In-person meetings have certainly returned, but I think [meeting virtually] has generally been accepted as a more efficient use of everyone’s time. — Keith Davis, KRD Design, Chester Springs, PA
  • We’re now able to travel and back to in-person meetings. — Scott Muller, Trademark Visual, Phoenix
  • We do not support remote working of our employees and strongly encourage face-to-face meetings with our customers. We are an “old-school signshop” and very proud of it! — Harold Pedley, Sign Engineering, San Juan, PR
