Virtual Conferences Getting More Sophisticated
I am participating in an all day online event called “Thrive 2010: The Ins and Outs of Online Marketing“, hosted by PRWeb. I will be conducting a live chat session over the lunch hour at Noon ET. You can ask just about anything you like about marketing and the web. The cost of the event is $99 but use this code PRWeb40 and you can get it for $59. There’s a nice lineup of speakers including:
- Peter Shankman on Tapping the Tweets: Harnessing Social Media to Drive Visitors
- Janet M. Thaeler on Boosting the Buzz: Driving Traffic and Publicity with News Releases
- Anne Holland on Confessions of a Serial Entrepreneur: Marketing for Success
What I really think is cool though is the online environment created by the online seminar service ON24. I’ve used ON24 for webcasts but they have developed this entire suite of templates and services for conducting online shows, virtual conferences with networking lounges, session rooms and lobbies that look like something out of a video game or second life set.
The idea of conducting all day online events through somewhat static platforms kind of pales when you start looking at what’s available as a virtual web show. Imagine what a persistent on demand collection of content presented from a virtual briefing room would look like.
