Why Virtual?

As important as physical conferences are, the proliferation of international events makes it impossible to exhibit and attend them all in terms of time and money.   At a fraction of the cost of a physical event, you have an incredible opportunity to meet and watch video presentations and panel sessions from awesome thinkers, movers, and practitioners in our industry – without leaving your office.   Jump into the greenest conference model there is and join in the conversation – get on the leading edge by connecting!
