ATTEND A CONFERENCE WITHOUT LEAVING YOUR OFFICE

A virtual event is a web-based event that replicates many aspects of a traditional, location-based conference, membership meeting or trade show.  It may take place on a standalone basis or in conjunction with a location-based conference.  Unlike a single webinar, virtual events feature multiple sessions and may include keynote presentations, training, workshops, discussion areas, social networking, exhibits, and more.
