The Mission of the Virtual Summit 2013 is to inform, share, and create a global social media experience for learning and networking via the power of the Internet.
New for 2013
Building on the success of our inaugural Virtual Summit 2011, this year Greenroofs.com is extremely pleased to be presenting The Greenroofs & Walls of the World™ Virtual Summit 2013 in association with the World Green Infrastructure Network (WGIN).
WGIN has brought an even greater international audience to our world stage. 2013's Virtual Summit alliance with WGIN allows us to optimize resources and promote leading edge information in a multi-lingual format.
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 conference and none of its carbon footprint, you have an incredible opportunity to meet and greet awesome experts and practitioners. Be cutting edge by participating!
The Greenroofs & Walls of the World™ Virtual Summit 2013 enhances the conference going experience on a global level without the expense of travel, lodging, and more:
Individuals and businesses can connect virtually and easily using a multi-dimensional and immersive architecture.
The Virtual Experience Platform lets each user collaborate privately and publicly with a flexible, “living” social network comprised of attendees, exhibitors and speakers.
Interact and participate in Q & A sessions with featured speakers and expert panels.
Attendees can leisurely roam our targeted live Expo Pavilions – chat live, see video presentations and download product literature from manufacturers, suppliers + professionals.
Exhibitors can successfully engage hundreds more key project stakeholders with a wide variety of eye catching, interactive tools.
The Virtual Experience draws highly visible, yet far-flung experts who otherwise might not be available to present, drawing more participants.
