Why Attend Virtually?

What is a Virtual Conference?

A virtual conference is a Web-based event that replicates many aspects of a traditional place-based conference, membership meeting, or trade show. It may take place on a standalone basis or in conjunction with a place-based conference (i.e., a “hybrid” event).

Virtual conferences feature multiple sessions (not just a single Webinar or Webcast) and may include keynote presentations, training and education workshops, discussion areas, social networking opportunities, exhibit areas for vendors, and various other features. Activities in a virtual conference may take place in real time (synchronously), on demand (asynchronously), or some combination of the two.

Why Attend?

  • Never miss a session, presentation, or panel – you will have access to all session’s on-demand up to 12 months after the virtual conference – meaning you do not have to miss a thing!
  • Let yourself be heard – connect with speakers by sending in your questions during live sessions  
  • Network and reconnect with colleagues – you can engage to create connections and get detailed, personalized insights regarding the conference agenda and the exhibition.
  • Visit the virtual exhibition – explore exhibitor profiles and find out what’s new in the industry. Check out videos and digital presentations for information and have live chats with attending industry reps.
