The recent economic situation has provided a catalyst for companies to look at cost-effective alternatives to scheduling and executing face-to-face meetings and events.  This situation combined with reduced travel and marketing budgets, has given rise to virtual events. A successful virtual strategy reduces costs, increases productivity, extends reach, provides rich data intelligence, and benefits the environment. Yet, meeting professionals are hesitant to incorporate virtual elements into their meetings and event portfolios. Leveraging real-world case studies, this session will dispel several myths about "going virtual". 

Get answers to your theories like:

  • Virtual will cannibalize my physical audience.
  • Virtual will be a costly element for me to include in my budget. 
  • Virtual will only be used by my most technically savvy members. 
  • Virtual is only for larger corporations.
