With corporate and association meetings budgets feeling the pressure from current economic conditions, e-meetings/virtual meetings/online meetings/webinars are becoming much more appealing alternatives to traditional live meetings. If you find yourself trying to evaluate whether the online medium is right for your next event, we came across this free webinar that you might find helpful, produced by MeetingsNet:
Hear from Debi Scholar, PricewaterhouseCoopers, as the pioneer of combining virtual meetings in the same team with meeting planners and from Tim Stark, the director of online events at Penton Media, the largest independent B2B media company in the U.S., on why you should embrace e-meetings and learn about best practices for planning, building, and deploying a successful online event.

As an added note: Many professional speakers are now offering “virtual” delivery of their keynote programs and workshops, in an effort to better accommodate clients’ needs. This web-based session can be a standalone program, or it can integrate with your complete online meeting agenda. Professionals are in need of expert insights from speakers today more than ever, yet reduced budgets can make it difficult to proceed as scheduled with sales meetings, leadership retreats and other programs. In that case, consider scheduling an online session with a speaker to access the same valuable content while saving time and money compared to a live event. If that’s of interest, contact us at The Speakers Group and we would be happy to discuss specific solutions that may be a fit for you.
