What are virtual conferences?

Virtual conferences are very similar to in-person conferences; they are built around live presentations and expansive agendas, which include keynote speakers, breakout rooms and multiple sessions. Virtual conferences often last between 1 to 3 days and are primarily used to connect business partners, clients and employees and rely heavily on networking and community engagement tools. 

Virtual conferences will generally employ a dedicated virtual events platform that allow attendees to view presentations in real time, build their own agenda, as well as providing on-demand content and extensive interactivity tools.
