Treat a virtual conference as you would an in-person conference with respect to your calendar and task load. Prioritize the time to be truly present in the experience, engage with the sessions and presenters, and use the chat and other networking tools regularly to connect with other attendees.

Get the Most Out of your Virtual Conference
Living in the reality of Covid-19 means many of the events we attended last year will now host their conferences virtually. To help you prepare for this new reality Unleashed Technologies would like to share 15 tips to get the most out of your virtual conference.
Let’s start with what a virtual conference is. In many cases, a virtual conference is going to be a web-conference, an all-encompassing term to describe the processes of connecting individuals or groups from separate geographies utilizing the internet, online programs, and a learning management system (LMS) to have live presentations, training webinars, collective meetings or video conferences. Web conferences allow for real-time communication. This can be from one sender to many receivers or from multiple senders to many receivers and any variation in between. Essentially it is a way for content, whether it be text-based messages, voice, or video chat, to be shared simultaneously across many geographic locations.
Now that you know what a virtual conference is, you might still be curious as to why you should attend. Right now, there may not be another choice. A virtual conference may be the only way to get information that will further your personal or professional growth or get vital updates about your industry. However, there are many other upsides to attending a virtual conference, such as lower cost, more flexibility, and being able to digest the information presented for a more extended period of time.
