Teleconferences, Webinars and Virtual Offices have all become part of today’s business landscape and are increasing in popularity as budgets and schedules tighten. Virtual events are also becoming more prevalent… but they can’t replace everything. Charlotte Woolard covers the increasing popularity of these events in her BToB Magazine article; Economy drives interest in more complex virtual events.

I liked that the article mentioned that face to face events are still important – especially for relationship building and networking, while education and communication events are better suited for virtual access.

We’re participating in a virtual event tomorrow through BrightTALK, their educational format allows for participants to submit questions in real time and take part in votes created by the speakers. Visit their site for topics, scheduling and to sign up… and remember, unlike in-person events, you can access these on-demand afterwards.
