Word is the Whirled Concrete event attendance was down 40%.
I'm not sure if attendance for a conference that's going on right now is an indication of what people will attend in a year. Personally, I'm not eating at indoor restaurants and my vacation to Seattle will be a first time road trip instead of flight.

"Business conventions exist to prove how many employees a company can function without."
I think the future for many trade show/conventions is not positive. If one attends because there are new products or services to evaluate, or participate in continuing professional education, much of that can be done remotely without the expense of a LV trade show "booth". Yes, there are aspects of conventions and trade shows that lend themselves to in-person contact but there are more productive ways to accomplish those as well.
Right now it's carpe per diem and we should grab every bit of work we can. The pundits that Fortune 100 companies pay for prognostication are indicating a resurgence of Covid-19 in October. I hope they're wrong.
