6 Benefits of Virtual Conferences

1) Virtual conferences provide an opportunity to reach a greater number of participants.

While in-person events draw a few hundred or few thousand attendees, due to limitations placed on travel and meeting space, the online versions can easily accommodate tens of thousands of people.

2) In many ways, virtual conferences offer a better experience.

On-screen participation by speakers and attendees can enhance the level of intimacy and personalization experienced, even for large groups. Virtual conferences can replicate in-person engagement through the use of interactive presentations, polls, live chat, Q&A, surveys, networking and more.

3) Virtual event platforms allow two-way sharing of information in real-time.

Real-time and asynchronous chat and messaging functions can be both public and private, allowing more people to comment and ask questions.

4) Virtual environments enable moderators to better manage the flow of discussion.

Event organizers and moderators can communicate with speakers behind the scenes to make adjustments in real time and screen questions from participants.

5) Virtual conferences and webinars can expand the potential for on-demand participation.

Recorded webinars and virtual conferences can extend the useful life of the virtual event, allowing viewing or replaying of the event at different times and by people who may not have participated in the real-time event.

6) Virtual events can reduce your carbon footprint.

Virtual meetings can be more accessible, affordable and environmentally friendly, even after stay-at-home requirements are loosened.
