Virtual Events Are Good Enough – The On-Premise IT Roundtable

The Premise: As the world has changed, we’ve started to see virtual events become the norm. But are virtual events just as good as in-person events?

Lots of us are experiencing the joy of working from home right now and many people are also experiencing the fun of virtual events. How are these events working?

Results from a quick non-official poll:
“I am never leaving my house again!”
“I despise virtual conferences.”
“An in-person interaction can’t bring more to the table than my computer screen and I can bring (to the kitchen table).”
“Events are a thing of the past and are being replaced with the almighty virtual option.”

Who’s right? Join us as we’ll discuss the various ways in which we can weigh a virtual vs in-person event, and why there are some things that just can’t be replaced.
