Take a Test Drive of a Virtual Event Platform

January 4, 2011 - 1 Comment

Next week 12-13 January the Virtual Edge Summit will take place featuring over 30+ educational sessions from 80+ industry experts on virtual solutions for events, learning and community. The sessions will feature case studies from virtual event experts such as Cisco’s own Kara Wilson, VP, Unified Communications and Collaboration Solutions and Angie Smith, Senior Manager, Global Sales Experiences. The event will also focus on future trends with speakers from Unisfair, InXpo, SAP, myself J, and more.

In my opinion the key differentiator for this event on virtual engagement case studies, best practices, and future trends versus others is that its hybrid extension is offered on a multitude of virtual event platforms including 6Connex, Digitell, Expos2, InXpo, and Unisfair.

“Last year, we received positive feedback from our audiences when we revealed this format for our hybrid event,” explained Michael Doyle, executive director of the Virtual Edge Institute, which produces the event. “This is a unique opportunity for our audiences to experience and evaluate multiple platforms, while enabling 6Connex, Digitell, Expos2, INXPO, and Unisfair to demonstrate their virtual expertise by creating virtual experiences that enrich engagement, networking and learning.”

So as you can see this is a great option (and the only event I am aware of that offers it) to test drive one event on many of the leading virtual event platforms in the industry. Even better, registration for the virtual options are free! So view the full program, choose a session, and then login to your platform of choice on 12-13 January.
