What is a virtual conference?
A virtual conference is an event hosted entirely over the internet, allowing remote attendees to access live and pre-recorded sessions and events from their computers. Attendees participate through a website designed specifically for a virtual conference experience. This website is where participants will watch sessions streamed live and engage in sessions by asking questions and commenting in real time.
In addition to the live events, the Virtual Conference includes discussion forums, an Exhibit Hall, networking opportunities, a conference resource center, the ability to search for and chat with other conference attendees, and other features specifically designed to give virtual attendees the same opportunity to learn and engage with the presenters.
