As far as I see (watching from the other side of the globe), for most
states it already is over, no matter whether somebody got a shot or not.
(actually, getting reports of people *with* the shot get increasing
trouble, eg. kept out of stores, schools, planes, ...).

FL and TX seem to be the most relaxed states in this regard.
Maybe ask DeStantis and Abbot whether they'd support such a conference
in their states, maybe they'd even open their cheque books ;-)

Looking from a totally different angle, I believe the hybrid approach
could even be a benefit. For example, longer talks - IMHO - are easier
to do (and for the audience) when just recorded, so people can listen to
them any time (and as often one wants to). Spontanous questions right
after, I guess, are only helpful for a small minority that's already
deep in that particular topic - in those cases I'd prefer a more
personal conversation. Another scenario are expert working groups, where
people already involved into certain topic talk closely - IMHO something
where direct (group) calls are a good medium, and probably working
better outside the strict time frames of such an event.

Maybe it's good idea to jump back to square one and ask the question,
what people actually expect from and try to achieve from such an event,
before going into some actual planning. (I could only express my very
personal view, but that's probably far from being representative)
